Digital platform

Participation as a digital exhibitor costs €5,900 (including media package of €585.00).
The use of the digital platform, worth approximately 5,300€, is free of charge in conjunction with a stand area.

When will the digital platform go online?

The digital platform will go online approx. 2 weeks before the start of the event. We will of course inform you accordingly.

Are exhibitor tickets also valid for the digital platform?

Exhibitor passes are valid for both the face-to-face event and the digital platform. With your exhibitor pass, you can use the digital platform for the entire duration of the event.

Are visitor tickets also valid for the digital platform?

Visitor tickets are valid for both the face-to-face event and the digital platform. With your day ticket, you can use the digital platform for the entire duration of the event.

What content can I deliver and in what format?

Your exhibitor profile, which you create via the Media Package Manager (MPM), will also be transferred to the digital platform.

Can joint stand participants be registered? If so, how much does it cost?

No digital GST may be registered.
Exceptions for associations or state-sponsored booths will be reviewed individually and made possible via a separate agreement.
Due to hygiene regulations and the associated minimum stand size of 12 sqm, physical exhibitors may only register a maximum of 1 (for 24 sqm) or 3 (for 48 sqm) GST at a time.

Physical exhibition

Are there any limits on the number of exhibitors/visitors per day or per hall?

From the current point of view, there will be no limits, but the general hygiene regulations will apply and the specified spacing regulations will apply. (1 person/4m²).

How will visitor limits be regulated on the individual stands?

The lounge area planned in the hall serves as an additional communication area for our exhibitors and visitors and enables to fall back on these alternative areas in the event of high visitor numbers at the booths. The general hygiene regulations also apply to the stands and the specified spacing regulations are valid. (1 person/4m²).

What is the advantage of booking a complete stand?

By booking a complete stand, your exhibition appearance is fully calculable and reduces costs as well as risk. If the physical exhibition is cancelled, you will not incur any cancellation costs for your complete stand.

Is there also the possibility to book a smaller stand area than 24m²?

By including joint stand participants, the stand area per exhibitor can be reduced. However, the hygiene regulations and the accompanying minimum stand size of 12 sqm also apply here. Physical exhibitors may therefore only register a maximum of 1 (for 24 sqm) or 3 (for 48 sqm) joint stand participants at a time.
