Step by step to your trade-fair stand

The following topics contain a brief explanation of the most important steps in the organisation of your trade-fair participation after the exhibitor application, e.g. regarding the placement process, stand building and equipment as well als invoicing.

1. Placement process—find your perfect exhibition space

  • After the start of allocation of stands, you will receive a stand proposal by e-mail to the correspondence contact named in the application.
  • Check this proposal carefully, especially with regard to location, stand type and size.
  • If everything meets your expectations, you can confirm your stand space by clicking on the "Accept" button, thus concluding a binding contract.
  • If you wish a different placement, please click the "Decline" button and describe your preferred placement request in as much detail as possible. We will do our best to provide you with a new placement proposal within the possibilities.

2. Stand building—Designing the perfect stand

The stand space booked via the online application does not include stand building. You have the following alternatives to build your stand:

  • using your own stand, naturally taking into account the technical guidelines; you can add services from the Exhibitor Shop, such as electricity
  • commissioning a stand builder, e.g. meplan
  • booking a LASER World of PHOTONICS stand package, which includes all necessary basic services

Submit any necessary documentation to the Technical Exhibitor Service, if one of the following cases applies:

  • The stand or advertising height is over 3m (stand plan).
  • The Stand is two-storey
  • The stand size is over 100sqm (stand plan).
  • If there are covered stand areas (stand plan).
  • A vehicle is exhibited (Form 1.2 "Application for Preventive Fire Protection Measures").

Please observe the information on stand design and special exhibits.

3. Exhibitor Shop—Ordering services for your stand online

Various services, such as electricity, cleaning, security, parking permits, etc., can be ordered via the Exhibitor Shop from end of January, provided you have confirmed your stand space.

  • You will receive the login information for the Exhibitor Shop by e-mail after confirmation of your stand proposal.
  • Please be sure to observe the order deadlines, as surcharges will apply for orders placed at very short notice.
  • Your stand will not be guarded by Messe München. We recommend that you book your own security via the Exhibitor Shop if necessary.
  • If you are planning an evening event at your stand, please register this using the appropriate form in the Exhibitor Shop.
  • You can also create your exhibitor passes via the Exhibitor Shop. They are available to you fully personalised and electronically as a mobile ticket for smartphone and tablet or Print@Home ticket. As a main exhibitor, you have a quota of free permanent exhibitor passes at your disposal; you will find the number in your placement proposal. Only used passes will be charged, the first ones used will automatically count as free of charge.

If you have any questions, please contact the Exhibitor Shop hotline:
Tel.: +49 89 949-11518
