Exhibition Hall 9 “Gatehouse”

The similarity with a gate is created by the construction of two interlocking structures (a 22-floor stone building with a large gate and a glass building penetrating this part). In this way, the Gatehouse is a symbol of the openness of the Frankfurt Trade Fair to the world, and also serves as a central contract point for exhibitors and visitors. The building is the home to the service centre, the international press centre and the headquarters of Messe Frankfurt GmbH (Messe Frankfurt GmbH). There is also an accessible platform at a height of 27 metres.
