In order to provide an optimum working atmosphere for all participants even on the last day of the trade fair we have taken additional
measures to improve the quality of the last day of the fair.
What do we do?
Dismantling may not take place before Wednesday,
4 February 2015, 06:00 p.m.
Up to this point in time and during the entire trade fair, the stand
must be equipped with the registered and approved exhibition
materials and occupied by personnel. Please do not start clearing the stand and packing the exhibits until the trade fair has closed.
Contravention of this can incur a penalty of up to 5,000.00 Euro.
For safety reasons you should pay extra attention to your products,
materials etc. We recommend securing the appropriate insurance
and a stand guard.
HGV traffic control
Please adhere strictly to our advice on traffic control. Due to construction work and blockades there may be traffic restrictions in the vicinity of the trade fair. Please inform yourself of the current
situation beforehand.
Please give this information and also the traffic guidelines and traffic control plan to your drivers and stand construction team.
