The internationale tanzmesse nrw hosts the largest professional gathering dedicated exclusively to contemporary dance. The internationale tanzmesse nrw takes place every two years, generally at the end of August, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The Exhibition Halls of the Tanzmesse are a space where companies, artists, local governments and agencies can present the work they do or represent artists. The Exhibition Halls are organised in differently sized booths, which international professionals can visit during the opening hours.

The Festival Programme of the Tanzmesse is an opportunity for Tanzmesse Exhibitors to present their work live, in the shape of fully produced performances or in the form of Open Studios, on 11 of the best stages for dance in Düsseldorf. The artistic programme is a selection of performances chosen from proposals submitted by artists.

The debates and information sessions present opportunities for Tanzmesse participants to network in smaller groups on specific and practical topics.
