Two occurrences have shaken the exhibition fraternity in June, The arson attack at Dusseldorf Messe and Britain’s exit from European union. Both have their own particular separate geographic and monetary effect for exhibition industry. The Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre is the venue for many significant meetings and trade fairs each year. DRUPA, the International media event was going on when the flame broke out. The event was however, safe due to the distance between the exhibition hall and the smoldering transient camp. The evaluated loss of the hall soaked in fire is computed to be USD 11 mn. Germany has seen a massive increase in fires at migrant camps since the beginning of the migrant crisis, with buildings destined for or being used as migrant accommodation burning making the German newspapers almost daily. While some fires have been blamed on German citizens expressing their dissatisfaction at the migrant crisis arriving in their neighbourhood, many fires have proven to have been set by the migrants themselves, either deliberately or through neglect.
