Messe München is promoting electromobility: From now on, as our guests and customers, you can conveniently refuel your electric vehicle (EV) at our exhibition center free of charge—with green electricity from the trade fair's own photovoltaic system. Up to 50 charging stations and a "supercharger" will be deployed in the course of the project throughout the entire exhibition site. With this endeavor, we are reaffirming our commitment to environmental protection and sustainability as part of our corporate social responsibility.

Free plug-in during the day, drive home with a full battery in the evening

You are entering the premises of the Messe München exhibition facility, your appointment is to start shortly. The battery level of your EV is already a bit critical. Without hesitation, you park your car next to a charging station, plug it in and go on to meet your appointments. When you return to the parking lot a few hours later, the battery will be back to full power, saving you the detour to the EV charging station. Great! You can head straight home and call it a day!

Promoting e-mobility, using natural resources and avoiding emissions: these are the goals that we at Messe München are espousing. And we want to offer excellent and innovative customer services. That is why, starting in 2018, you will find modern charging stations on the Messe München exhibition grounds: The charging stations and the supercharger, a fast-charging station, supply the electric vehicles of our visitors and exhibitors with free electricity from our own solar collection system.

An integrated concept throughout the entire site: Charging stations at the Munich Exhibition Center

Around 50 charging stations are planned in the course of the project in order to provide a full-coverage charging infrastructure at Messe München.

This is where to find the charging stations:

  • in the Parking Garage West (20 charging stations),
  • at the Trade Fair Administration Building (4 charging stations)
  • as well as at various points throughout the exhibition center

The supercharger, which enables really fast power charging, is located at the ICM—Internationales Congress Center München.

In addition to permanently installed charging stations, quite a number of mobile units will also be deployed, for flexible use where needed.

How to use the charging stations

Activating the charging stations for free EV power occurs by chip / transponder card.

To obtain access to the supercharger at the ICM, you need to first register at the Business Center:

  • Monday through Thursday: 08:00–17:00, Friday: 08:00–16:00
  • outside these hours: please contact our service staff at phone +49 89 949-24555; e-mail:

During events, access to the charging stations at the Parking Garage West is in accordance with the opening hours of the parking facility.

Our responsibility: Messe München promotes environmental and climate protection

Promoting e-mobility is one thing. Our sustainable charging concept also aims to protect the environment and save resources. We are particularly proud of the fact that the power we provide you to refuel your electric vehicle at the Munich Trade Fair Center is sourced from our in-house photovoltaic roof system—in other words, 100 percent from renewable energy. The generation of solar energy does not produce any CO2 emissions either.

Messe München means to actively contribute to reducing local pollution from road traffic. Because the topic "environment" is one of our three core fields of action in the context of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) program.
