Messe Frankfurt - Halle 3 is one of the exhibition areas of the trade fair center. Erected in 2001, its contemporary layout was planned by Nicholas Grimshaw, a British architect. This bi-level facility with a column-free second level features exhibition spaces, couple of restaurants, conference areas and several office rooms. Halle 3.1 is a part of this building. It is linked to the other venues of Messe Frankfurt such as Halle 1, Festhalle and Forum.
