In all of its business activities, Deutsche Messe stands committed to upholding the principles of legal compliance and social responsibility. The principle of ethical and lawful conduct of our business is a core and inalienable part of our corporate culture and is enshrined in our Compliance Statement. The Compliance Statement documents the values upon which our business is founded, such as our deeply felt commitment to respect, openness and tolerance toward people of all cultural backgrounds, and our categorical rejection of any and every form of discrimination.
Our specific compliance objectives flow directly from our responsibilities as professional organizers, planners and operators of trade fairs, exhibitions and other events, namely:
- ensuring on-site safety for everyone involved in our events
- IT security and data protection
- commitment to free competition (compliance with antitrust laws)
- prevention of corruption
Mr. Reza-René Mertens serves both as our Chief Compliance Officer and as the head of our Legal Department. Our external contact for all compliance matters is Mr. Karsten Kassebeer. He is a lawyer and will treat your inquiries and concerns in confidence.
