Shortly before his retirement, Wolfram Schäfer, a long-standing CEO of an internationally active pharmaceutical company, decided to found an external trade fair department for the planning and implementation of advertising for the pharmaceutical industry. He used his experiences in corporate presentations.


Seven years later, Torsten Schäfer joined the company after completing his high school diploma. At the beginning of his studies in economics, he supported his father in further developing the company. His special interest was implementing the system rental booth. Together, they intensified their specialization in exhibition service, branching out into other sectors while increasing their customer network both nationally and internationally.


On 1st January 1997 Wolfram and Torsten Schäfer founded SMC Schäfer Messe + Consulting GmbH. As the company’s portfolio expanded, more staff were employed.
