Messe Düsseldorf has now played host to some of the best table tennis we will see in 2017. It took ten days of preparation to get the venue ready for the Liebherr 2017 World Table Tennis Championships.
The 500 tonnes of material used for the tribunes have withstood the thousands of cheering spectators who have filled the stands during the week of competition.
