Staff and catering from a single source

We are happy to support you with our experience.

You benefit from having the advantage of a responsible contact for both areas and you save time and manpower for the intricate coordination of all the individual services.

In close cooperation and partnership with our clients and all the tradespeople involved, we put together a coherent staff and catering programme to be implemented at your event. Harmonious interaction between us ensures everything runs smoothly.

Our clients include companies from a wide range of industries, SMEs as well as major corporations. We support you nationwide at national and international trade fairs and with our partners in other European countries as well. Our portfolio is supplemented by services in the field of communications systems, photography and decoration.

We take care of medium-sized stands and large exhibitions covering 3,000 sqm just as professionally and with a high level of commitment. We are also there for your guests at general meetings, congresses, dealer presentations, corporate events, and evening festivities.

What really matters

We value reliability, consistent quality and stable client relationships.

Our many years of positive cooperation with numerous companies have been characterised by wholehearted communication and appreciation.

Transparency and credibility create trust. Our staffing offers include a detailed cost breakdown for the requested positions, while our catering calculations with a complete listing of individual services provide budget certainty from the start. All invoices are clearly structured and comprehensible.

Our hosts and hostesses plus the service and kitchen staff are mainly students. Our very attractive working conditions, a clear salary system and punctual payment ensure fair and satisfactory results. Many staff also remain loyal to us for prolonged periods and recommend us to others. Our clients also benefit from this positive working environment.

Just to be sure

Trade fair and event staff must be managed as employees without restriction. People are employed at MTC based on short-term employment relationships. Our fees include the statutory social security contributions.

Thorough planning

Right from your initial enquiry, we want to specify your needs by asking the right questions. What experiences have you had with previous events and what do you value particularly?

We listen and provide valuable input, from our first contact to completion of the project.

We keep an eye on the big picture and pay a lot of attention to the minor details as well.

We manage the project at our head office in Eschborn near Frankfurt.

Our motivated agency team with plenty of consulting skills organises the projects and ensures our procedures are monitored on site.

Development and continuity

We’re considered one of the old hands in our industry.
We have seen trends come and go, have developed steadily over generations and have always remained true to ourselves.


After graduating with a Magister Artium (political science, social psychology, international law) and five years of experience in trade fair organisation and recruitment, today’s CEO Carola Deiring establishes the staff service agency MTC Agentur für Messen, Tagungen und Congresse GmbH.

1988 – 1994

The Bundesgartenschau ("BUGA", the largest annual horticultural show in Germany) in the Nidda-Auen of Frankfurt in 1989 is a first major assignment for the agency.

From April to mid-October we have our own coordination centre at the BUGA site and are responsible for all guided tours, press conferences and evening festivities. BUGA in Dortmund follows two years later.

The trade fair business expands. External staff are increasingly booked for catering services and to provide information. Notable clients from the start have remained loyal to us to this day.

1995 – 2004

Our rapid growth means new office space is required.

The Frankfurt Westend district becomes MTC’s domicile for 10 years. Here we have space for new project teams, new ideas and the expansion of our sales and marketing activities.

A plan to service our clients in all major German trade fair cities is developed and successfully implemented.

Trade fairs such as BAUMA in Munich, CeBit, Hanover Messe and IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hanover, IAA Automobile in Frankfurt, Plastics Fair K in Düsseldorf plus numerous events and general meetings are now part of our routine.

2005 - 2015

MTC moves to Eschborn, a small town at the time with very good connections to Frankfurt and the ideal location for access by car, rail or air. All our projects have been coordinated centrally from here to this day.

The growing warehouse for trade fair clothing is also being integrated into our large commercial space; this makes assembly and shipping easier and faster.

After almost 20 years of effectively concentrating on our core business, the time has come to expand our service portfolio further. With the expertise we already have, we also offer catering to our clients.

Our full service programme of everything from a single source arouses great interest in the market and will be consistently developed and implemented with selected partners over the next few years.

2016 - to date

High level of client satisfaction is an incentive for further development.

The conclusion of long-term general agreements provides efficiency advantages for both parties and enables a streamlined administration.

Nicolas Kleinert is a staff member we recruited as MTC’s chief host and supervisor. For seven years he managed the major trade fair stands of our clients and events employing over 100 hosts and hostesses. As an internal project manager with his technical knowledge, since 2016 he is a sought-after consultant in all matters to do with staff and catering.

Thanks to his trustworthiness and loyalty, Nicolas Kleinert is granted commercial power of attorney.
