Model engineering shows with cult status!

Messe Sinsheim GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Schall Group, inspires throughout Germany and Europe with its technically oriented public trade fairs. At the cult fairs

  • of the leading international trade fair Faszination Modellbau Friedrichshafen
  • of the International Model Railway Exhibition (IMA)
  • the Echtdampf-Hallentreffen now also in Friedrichshafen as well as the
  • of the Fascination Model Railway in Mannheim

the respective community meets and celebrates their wonderful hobbies at a high level.

The model building events at Messe Sinsheim have always been characterised by their unique atmosphere. This is characterised by the excellent combination of high-quality product presentations by the brand exhibitors for the trade public and the inspiring and creative hands-on activities of the clubs and associations for children, young people and the young at heart. Since its inception in 1994 in Sinsheim, all branches of model making have been celebrated unconventionally and with great pleasure at this event.

Our story: the big colourful stage fair

From a garage start-up in Neuffen in Baden-Württemberg to an internationally sought-after trade fair company: our company history, our roots, our values.

What always inspires me about trade fairs is the people, this colourful mix of different personalities and nationalities. From the cleaner to the Chancellor, everyone plays their part on the big colourful stage Fair.

– Paul Eberhard Schall
