Stand construction / Technology

How high is the hall? What is the floor load for the hall and what lighting does it have?
You can find this information in the Technical Details for the Halls on page 10 and 57 onwards.

Two-storey constructions are possible in some halls (see construction heights).
For this purpose, the plans required for the application for approval, including a check of the statics, must be submitted in duplicate 6 weeks before construction begins at the latest to

Messe Frankfurt Venue GmbH
Technical Event Management
Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1
D-60327 Frankfurt am Main

For more detailed information, please see the General Terms & Conditions of Business or the Technical Guidelines in the version in force for the time being.

For the inspection of a two-storey structure the exhibitor will be charged a fee. The costs of the approval procedure (inspection of documents submitted and approval in situ) will be invoiced to the exhibitor or stand builder. Should no static calculation have been provided, certified by a second, independent static engineer, the engineering practice commissioned by Messe Frankfurt will undertake the inspection itself and pass the costs on separately to the exhibitor.   

Please note that the additional square meters of the two-storey construction are also subject to a charge. Actual square meters will be charged separately after the fair.

Should you have any questions, please contact:

The Technical Event Management Team
Phone +49 69 75 75-59 04

In case of a one side open or two side open stand, 6 cm must be subtracted from the confirmed stand width to obtain the clear width, due to the width of the partition walls.

Messe Frankfurt erects standard stand partition walls that are 2.50 m high with adjustable feet of up to 0.12 m in length. Please order these in advance (free of charge) in the Shop for Exhibitor Services.

Should you have any questions or wish to make any changes, please contact

Please note that the stand walls must not be damaged (no nails, screws etc.).

Stands located in outdoor areas, temporary structures, mobile stands, two-storey stands, special mountings and special designs have to be approved separately and are subject to a charge.

Special designs include, for example:

  • Stands of over 100 sq m
  • Two-storey constructions
  • Walls over 4 m high
  • Closed ceilings
  • Plinths higher than 0.20 m
  • Glass constructions
  • Moving components

Suitably scaled stand plans (e.g. 1:100) are to be submitted in duplicate for approval at the latest six weeks before construction begins and labelled in German or English.

They should be submitted to:

Messe Frankfurt Venue GmbH
Technical Event Management
Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1
D-60327 Frankfurt am Main

Note: the side of the stand on the aisle
The stand construction must be made as transparent as possible if it borders on an aisle. A frontage with a layout that is up to 70% open is desirable. Long, enclosed stand structures bordering on aisles are not permitted. Please check the technical guidelines point 4.7.1. In the case of non-compliance we explicitly reserve the right to have modifications made onsite.

The hall supports are marked in the hall plan as a black square or circle. The supports are covered to a height of 3 m with a white-coated chip-board (except for Hall 11.0: wich has no support covering). The coverings must not be encumbered or damaged. You will find the precise measurements and location of the support(s) in the stand sketch of our stand place proposal. The dimensions refer to the support covering. 

In most halls it is possible to fix suspended items in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the Shop for Exhibitor Services. Suspensions must only be fitted by the hall electrician. For your order please use our Shop for Exhibitor Services.
