With the largest collection of German media on topics such as exhibition, event, convention, meetings and event management, the AUMA Ausstellungs- und Messe-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft e.V. (Trade Fair Committee of German Businesses) provides the industry with a special service. The growing importance of live communication and its various instruments has led to an expansion of the German Trade Fair Library in recent years into topics that do not deal exclusively with trade shows. Thus it is a worthwhile research facility for students, apprentices and practitioners from the general event management fields. Overall, the library currently offers more than 7,300 media units, with an emphasis on event management with more than 600 journal articles, 400 non-fiction books and 100 scientific papers. The German trade fair library in Berlin is open to the public by appointment; the catalogue is searchable online at www.deutsche-messebibliothek.de.
Members of the EVVC can refer students and trainees to this offer.
