The Westfalenhallen are an essential part of German and European trade fair, congress and event history.

The origins of today's Westfalenhallen Dortmund group of companies date back to 1925, when the Westfalenhalle AG was entered in the Commercial Register on March 3, 1925. Since that time, the Westfalenhallen has made a unique contribution to the history of trade fairs, congresses and events in Germany and Europe. The history is so rich in memorable events that it could fill a book. Here are excerpts from the chronicle "Westfalenhallen Dortmund - The Chronicle", which illuminate the development in the various business fields from the post-war period to the year 2011.
