Covid-19 Update

Fensterbau Frontale 2024 will take place as a live exhibition between 19.03.2024–22.03.2024. The hosting venue for the edition will be Messe Nuremberg. The exhibition centre will not feature a strict COVID-19 prevention plan. This is due to the Bundestag removing the related domestic restrictions during April 2022 as a result of the improving pandemic situation. The Holz-Handwerk will coincide with the edition.


Fensterbau Frontale is one of the most significant international trade fairs for windows, facades and doors, and their associated technologies and solutions on a global level. The trade fair has an official start in 1988, but has deeper roots in recent post-war Germany when the procurement of any materials, tools, and machinery for window manufacturers was scarce.

Right now, Fensterbau Frontale exists as an industry leader in the industry and a major procurement platform. The product portfolio is broken into five major categories – glass (window panes, glass products), hardware (doors and safety equipment), machines (manufacturing machinery and tools), profile (elements, semi-finished products, materials, and components) and technical information.


Fensterbau Frontale is an official trade fair organised by NürnbergMesse GmbH and held at their exhibition grounds in Nuremberg, Germany. Editions have been on a steady biennial rotation and fall on even years. Three of influential professional associations in Germany sponsor the trade fair. These are Fachverband Glas Fenster Fassade Baden-Württemberg, Landesinnungsverband des Glaserhandwerks Rheinland-Pfalz and Landesinnungsverband des Bayerischen Glaserhandwerks.

Editions usually take place around March and last for four days in total. Messe Nuremberg admits visitors from 10:00 am until 18:00 pm with the last day concluding at 17:00 pm. The exhibition grounds are located relatively close to the centre and enjoy adequate connections to public transport with several bus lines and a metro station within walking distance.
