With its 500,000 inhabitants, Nuremberg is the second largest metropolis in the Free State of Bavaria and is regarded as a city in the district of Unterfranken. The Metropolregion Nürnberg is even rated with 1.2 million inhabitants.
In its 1000 years of history, Nuremberg gained importance with industrialization and was named Nuremberg, a European metropolitan region, just a few years ago. The city has long been home to large companies such as Quelle or MAN who have outsourced or shut down their capacities or parts of their production over time. Today Nuremberg is the magnet for companies from the communication, consulting, media and research sectors. Nuremberg is now the leading location for market research and trend analysis. The company Siemens is particularly strongly represented in Nuremberg and the Greater Nuremberg and Fürth region. However, here too, job cuts at Siemens and its subsidiaries have been a factor in the region.
With its international aspirational character, Nuremberg is also well-established in the field of trade fairs. The national as well as European weighting of the Nuremberg metropolitan area has increased considerably in recent years. Not only the annual International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, but also a large number of trade fairs such as Euroguss and Biofach are the world's leading trade fairs for their industries have established themselves at established trade fairs in Nuremberg. In addition, public masses such as Consumenta attract several million people every year to the metropolitan area of ??Nuremberg.
Nuremberg has a wide selection of hotels in all categories. Due to the centralization of Nuremberg, the city center hotels are rapidly expanding. Unfortunately, there are not many hotels close to the exhibition center, so it is recommended to create a selection of hotels for the following trade fair and to plan the hotel reservation in the long term.
