Deutsche Messe soon to run Intershop software

Complete redesign and significant expansion of the functionality of Deutsche Messe AG's Internet presence

  • Several hundred thousands of euros in license revenue plus substantial service contracts for Intershop
  • Comprehensive expansion of Internet activities planned

Jena (Germany), August 15, 2008 – Deutsche Messe AG, Germany's best-known and internationally extremely successful exhibition company, is to completely redesign and significantly expand the functionality of its Internet presence based on Intershop's Enfinity Suite 6.

The modern tradeshow portal will be available not only to all subsidiaries, but also for online presentations by individual exhibitors. It will use almost the entire array of standard Enfinity Suite 6 functions, including e-commerce transactions, comfortable content maintenance, and localization as well as the integration of external catalogue content and existing IT systems, internationalization, and globalization. The system will offer maximum failsafe protection and will be constantly expanded once it is launched, both regionally and in terms of its functionality.

Intershop will play a key role in the implementation project and will be responsible for long-term operational support for the tradeshow portal.

"After a thorough evaluation, we are convinced that we have found a standard solution with Enfinity Suite 6 that will meet our requirements to a significant extent," says Marcus Eibach, Divisional Manager, Marketing for Deutsche Messe AG.
