FKM certification


FKM, the Society for the Voluntary Control of Fair and Exhibition Statistics, was founded in 1965. It made the comparability and reliability of trade-fair statistics one of its basic principles right from the start.

The FKM developed standardised rules for the collection of exhibitor, space and visitor statistics as well as for visitor profiles. Compliance with the rules are monitored by a professional auditor. After all, proper planning for exhibitors and visitors is only possible if they can be certain that existing data has been collected over time and in comparison with other trade fairs according to standard definitions.

Each year almost 70 organizers of some 300 trade fairs and exhibitions are subject to audits by FKM. RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLAIVE 2022 was also assessed by FKM.
