BOE INTERNATIONAL, also known as Best of Events International, is the leading trade fair for live communication measures. It’s widely considered to be one of the top procurement platforms in Europe and compliments its rich product portfolios with an information-heavy support program. Exhibitors are divided among four thematic areas: Technology & Scenography, MICE, Digital and Safety & Security. Exhibitors are in the right place to meet with qualified visitors, who have direct purchasing power, via free guided tours for trade visitors and interested parties, which are held in German. Since 1998, Best of Events International has been the prime meeting point for top experts and leaders to give talks and host presentations in thematic forums. 


The 2025 edition of BOE International will take place between 15.01.2025 and 16.01.2025 as a face-to-face exhibition. The event will occur at Messe Dortmund.

  • “This year, ESG Connect at the BOE INTERNATIONAL was once again a complete success and showed us that the cooperation with Messe Dortmund is working. We are on the right track! The new location in Hall 5 is also crystallizing as a quality marketplace for trade fair, event and exhibition construction,” – Silke Schulte, Managing director of the ESG Einkaufs- und Servicegesellschaft;
  • “The BoE was again very good for N&M as a communication starting point. We were very curious to see how the trade fair would develop, after the introduction of the BrandEx Festival, because a long-awaited wish was to be able to talk more with end customers during the trade fair," – Alexander Ostermaier, Managing director at Neumann&Müller Veranstaltungstechnik;
  • “Three eventful days in the truest sense of the word. Top speakers and an ambitious congress and workshop format on the one hand and the perfectly staged 100-minute award show on the other hand offered this year's BrandEx Festival visitors an entertaining and passionate day of the event,” – Michael Hosang, Managing director of the Studieninstitut für Kommunikation

BOE INTERNATIONAL maintains a strong presence for the events industry. Last year there were around 650 exhibitors from all related areas of experiential marketing in attendance. Exhibitors cover the full spectrum of event organisation and equipment to trade fair construction. Then there were the trade visitors, which go over 11,000 professionals involved in a variety of industries. You will have the chance to interact with decision makers from hotel industry and gastronomy; film, radio and television; event technology; trade fair and exhibition construction and event agencies; industry, trade and the service sectors. The calibre of visitors is high as the majority are decision makers in marketing, buyers and project managers. They come predominantly with the mission to research what’s on offer, what’s new and what’s top of the line. As an exhibitor, you can take full advantage of business matchmaking, networking and meetings. 


BOE International 2023 was a live trade show in Messe Dortmund between 11.01.2023 and 12.01.2023. Due to Germany removing its pandemic-related restrictions, the event site did not include Covid-19 safety measures. BOE International 2023 featured 9,000 visitors, with 90% of the group considering participating in the next edition.
