Messe Frankfurt: Ambiente 97 Percent Booked

FRANKFURT, Germany-With six months to go before German trade fair Ambiente opens it doors, exhibition space is already occupied to 97 percent, said show owner and organizer Messe Frankfurt. The show will take place Feb. 15-19, 2013.

Messe Frankfurt has also created a temporary exhibit space called Hall 12.0 in the Passage segment of the show. The new exhibition hall will adjoin Portalhaus, the entrance building on the west of the exhibition center, and be linked to Hall 10. This will create a clear structure with only short walking distances to the other Passage segments at Ambiente, according to Messe Frankfurt.

In addition, France has been named Ambiente's partner country for the 2013 edition, with an extensive program of events under the motto, "l'art de vivre a la francaise".
