The "Messe" in Berlin is the name for what they call the "Fairground," which is where big trade shows take place.  Actually, "big" is an understatement.  I'm in town for a show called IFA which is the world's largest consumer electronics/home entertainment show.  It is so big that each "booth" can occupy an entire building and getting from place to place can be a nightmare.  I spent most of today rushing from meeting to meeting from 8:00 a.m. to nearly midnight and the show hasn't even started yet.  Oh, well.  I guess they don't call it "the Messe" for nothing ...!

I try to avoid all forms of Messe assiduously.

That's the trouble with the Germans, it's all or nothing. You never really know what you are going to get with them, but it usually comes in vast quantities.

Be glad that you aren't there as part of the cleaning crew. Now, go play. You don't have to see the whole messe. --Cin
