RDA Group Travel Expo to be held in new Hall 1 at Koelnmesse from 2026 onwards

The RDA Group Travel Expo will also take place at Koelnmesse in 2025 and 2026.

In 2025, as in previous years, the leading trade exhibition for coach and group tourism will occupy the modern Hall 9 of Koelnmesse on April, 29th + 30rd 2025.

In 2026, the RDA Group Travel Expo will move to the newly built Hall 1 and take place on April, 28th + 29th 2026. With an exhibition area of 10,000 m², Hall 1 is one of the most modern exhibition halls in Europe and is part of the new construction project "Koelnmesse 3.0", which is scheduled for completion in 2024. The West Entrance, which is within walking distance of the "Messe/Deutz" S-Bahn station, connects Hall 1 with the newly built "Confex" conference centre.

"From 2026 we will be able to hold the RDA Group Travel Expo in the new Hall 1 in an even more sustainable, digital and convenient way. With the integration of the "Confex" conference centre, which will be directly connected to Hall 1 and will have an extensive range of rooms and state-of-the-art technical equipment, interactive event formats can be realised in the immediate vicinity of the trade exhibition," says Benedikt Esser, Managing Director of RDA Expo GmbH.
