What it’s Like to Work at Messe Frankfurt North America?

 

Our HR Director, Vickie Ralls shares what it’s like to work at one of the top trade show companies in the world.

We’re Diverse
One of the most fascinating aspects of the business is the incredibly different industries in which the teams work. From Automechanika to Texworld USA and Boulevard-Pret-a-Sale, from Beautyworld Middle East, and Paperworld to Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas. These just name a few and how diverse the shows are. It’s very exciting when a team is ready to take off for their show. There’s a kind of frenzy and excitement that’s a contagious energy which spreads around the office.

Our employees have a strong desire to contribute and are committed to providing excellent service to our customers. We value our diversity and different perspectives. The employees are encouraged to develop further and progress in their field with the support of management. We take pride in all of our employees and collectively share in the prosperity of the business.
