What guidelines do I need to follow for setting up my stand?

Please follow the Technical Guidelines (PDF, 755 kB) issued by Leipziger Messe GmbH. Information here includes the requirement that all stand construction materials meet at least B1 standards, that they be flame-retardant and not produce burning droplets. This also applies to fabrics and tablecloths.

Because the exhibition hall will be very dimly lit, we recommend that exhibitors make sure they have adequate lighting for their stands. The event organizers will not generally provide any partitions separating one stand from another. Exhibitors must provide their own partitions or have these provided by a stand construction company working on the exhibitor's behalf. A partition must take the form of a self-contained, stable, self-supporting wall.

The following requirements must be met:

  • Inline stand: 1 back and 2 side partitions
  • Corner stand: 1 back and 1 side partition
  • Peninsula stand: 1 back partition

According to current plans, all stands in the hall will be freestanding. We recommend that exhibitors design their stands to be attractive from all sides.

Please note: Your stand requires a stand construction permit, which must be submitted on time to the Leipziger Messe GmbH Event Technology Department (Abteilung Veranstaltungstechnik).

Can I have packages delivered to my stand?

Yes, packages may be delivered during set-up and throughout the festival and will be delivered to your stand between 8 am and 5 pm. Shipments must be addressed as follows:
