I would like to offer food or drinks to visitors at my stand. What do I have to consider?

In principle, the distribution of samples for consumption on the spot and the sale of food and beverages is permitted. The free distribution of samples, i.e. the distribution of food and beverages for immediate consumption in quantities smaller than those customary in the trade as well as free catering for customers, is not subject to approval. Please refer to the "Information sheet on hygienic minimum requirements for food stalls at markets, public festivals and similar events".

With regard to Covid-19, it is recommended to refrain from offering open food and beverages. When selecting food, individual packaging or food and beverages that can be portioned well and served individually are suitable.



Items have been removed from my stand. Can I reclaim the associated costs?

The host is not liable for exhibitors’ property if it is lost, damaged or stolen.

Our advice:
  • Order your own stand security.
  • Do not leave your goods unattended or unsecured on your stand during the construction and dismantling phases.
  • Remove all valuable, unsecured exhibits when you leave your stand after the fair has closed.
  • Arrange fixed dates with your carrier for the delivery and collection of exhibition goods so that the stand and collection are not left unattended.
  • Insure your goods. This will at least cover the risk of economic loss.



Do my stand staff need an additional letter of invitation from the host for their visa applications?

Effective 24 July 2013, the German Federal Foreign Office instructed visa offices in Germany’s diplomatic missions that, as a rule, no letter of invitation from trade fair organizers need be presented any more as part of an application for a visa to enter Germany for the purpose of a trade fair. Please cite this information in your visa application. To ensure that you receive your visa in time for the fair, we advise you to apply for a visa early. Please contact the responsible embassy in your country as early as possible regarding possible travel restrictions and extended requirements for visa applications.



Is the exhibitor evening/stand parties possible again this year?

According to the current state of affairs, a stand party is possible subject to compliance with the following measures: A stand party can take place under 3G with fixed seating without a DJ and dance floor, but with mandatory masks outside the fixed seating. As all visitors to a fair comply with 3G status by entering the fair, no additional control is required. A stand party with a dance floor, DJ and no mask requirement can also take place if the party area is subject to access control with 2G verification. A simple cordoning off of the stand with e.g. tensators would be sufficient here.



Are animals allowed on the trade fair venue?

No, animals are not allowed on the trade fair venue. Exception: Guide dogs for the disabled, guide dogs for the blind, service dogs.



Am I permitted to take photos and record videos at the trade fair?

Only photographers approved by the event organiser are permitted to undertake commercial photography and filming on the trade fair site. Any exceptions to this rule require the written permission of the event organiser. The event organiser is entitled to use all types of images for general purposes, or its own publications. As part of this, exhibitors relinquish the right to raise any objections based on copyright.



What information is available about “intellectual property infringement at German trade fairs”?

Please see the information sheet “Intellectual property infringement at German trade fairs” from AUMA (Association of the German Trade Fair Industry) for detailed information.
