Checklist for the fair preparations
Stand construction / Technology
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
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
D-60327 Frankfurt am Main
At least 70% of all sides of the stand-construction adjoining an aisle must be open or transparent. Elongated closed stand constructions on the aisles are not permitted. Please check the technical guidelines. In the case of non-compliance we explicitly reserve the right to have modifications made onsite.
The special stand construction regulation of Light + Building can be found here.
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.

The digital platform opens with all functions from 13 to 25 March 2022.
Can an exhibitor see and test how his profile is seen by visitors so that any mistakes can be corrected?
As soon as information are filled in the MPM, the exhibitor can see directly in the preview how it will look on the website, in the app etc.. Unfortunately, the preview does not show the platform, but looks exactly the same as in the exhibitor search on the website.
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.
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.
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.
Your contact person for your hall will be happy to help you with any questions you may have about the digital platform.
Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge are the best browsers for participating in the digital event. Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are the most stable browsers. Internet Explorer is not supported by the digital platform.
Structure of the platform
The platform and also the streams will be available in both German and English. The language can be switched via the icon at the top of the screen.
In the "My Profile" tab, your personal data will be taken from your registration. You can change and add to this at any time even before the event. This data is used to present you the best matches possible.
With the help of a mathematical algorithm and your user behaviour, we check the matches between your details in the networking section and the details of the other participants. If you open the details of the participant by clicking on the name, you will see the areas in which you have matches. You have the possibility to get other matches by changing your interests.
Under "Search Participants" in the Networking section, you can also find other participants. With the help of different filters you can limit your results.
How can I as an exhibitor influence which visitors I am matched with via the algorithm? How is this catgeorised on the digital platform?
Once the exhibitor's main contact has access to the platform, they can customise their onboarding information such as product categories, interest in, search for, etc.
Visitors are asked for the same information. If the answers match on both sides, they are suggested to each other.
The answers are considered in aggregate, i.e. the more information the better and the more matching answers the better the quality of the lead. If there is still only one match or no match at all, they can also get in touch.
The platform will be online with all functions until 25 March 2022.
Helpful explanatory videos on the platform are available for you on the website, in the menu under "Digital Plus The concept - personal and digital". You are also welcome to listen to our podcast, which introduces Messe Frankfurt's hybrid event format.
People who are in different locations can make a video call and see each other at the same time via video.
You can participate in a video call with a laptop, PC or mobile device. In order to use all functions you need a device with a camera and a microphone.
With mobile devices, there may be limitations due to different versions of the various operating systems.
As soon as you open the exhibitor profile, you will find exhibitor representatives who are available for a video call. You can start the video call by clicking on the video call button.
Alternatively, you can make an appointment.
Web Sessions offer exhibitors the opportunity to present their product innovations and services in a very individual and personal manner. All Web Sessions enjoy equal status with other items on the event platform and are listed in the event calendar. Each Web Session has a fixed ‘broadcast time’ at which it is streamed live on the event platform. Following the live streams, all Web Sessions remain available as videos on demand until the platform is closed (which is usually a few weeks after the end of the event). Web Sessions are either 15 or 30 minutes in length and can be booked for a fee until 21 days before the start of the event. The following options are available…
If you choose this option, you supply us with a finished video by no later than two weeks before the start of the event. Our technical team will then integrate the live stream into the event platform. It goes without saying that you have full control over the content and design of your video, as there is no live component. All Web Sessions under Option 1 include a free Q&A session in the form of a chat. This allows you to personally contact participants even when using pre-recorded content. The chat remains open throughout the Web Session, making it possible for participants to ask you questions. If you would rather not take advantage of the Q&A chat, you can simply deactivate this when making your booking.
Subtitles can also be used for Web Sessions under Option 1. Please integrate these directly into your video file. There is no provision made for a test run. As soon as we have received your content, we examine it to ensure that it meets the specified requirements and then broadcast the live stream at the agreed time.
With this option, you give your presentation as a live stream. This is shown to participants as a large image on the screen, with a smaller window featuring the person giving the presentation. Please be sure to supply us with the finished presentation by no later than two weeks before the start of the event. Our technicians will then integrate it into the live stream directly. Your speaker will be broadcast live using the vMix Call video conferencing program. Please note that we only work with vMix Call and that it is not possible to integrate other video conferencing programs (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Zoom, WebEx etc.). All Web Sessions under Option 2 include a free Q&A session that allows you to personally contact participants during the steaming slot you have booked. For this Q&A, a chat window is opened for the entire duration of your Web Session that allows participants to ask you questions.
With Option 2, it is also possible to open a second speaker window for answering questions after the presentation is finished. You can use this window to have a moderator ask the speaker questions (that you have already selected from among those selected), or you can have a different expert answer the questions. If you would rather not take advantage of the Q&A session, you can simply deactivate this when making your booking.
Option 3: Live streaming as an expert discussion with as many as five participants simultaneously, without a presentation
In Option 3, you can discuss topics important to your industry with as many as five people of your choice. Your panel could be made up entirely of experts from within your company, or you can allow your partners and customers the chance to have their say – the decision is yours. Option 3 does not include an ability to integrate a presentation. Instead, it is centred on a captivating dialogue involving your experts, and it goes without saying that they can join your Web Session live from various locations. Please note that we only work with vMix Call and that it is not possible to integrate other video conferencing programs (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Zoom, WebEx etc.). All Web Sessions under Option 3 include a free Q&A session that allows you to personally contact participants during the steaming slot you have booked. For this Q&A, a chat window is opened for the entire duration of your Web Session that allows participants to ask you questions. If you would rather not take advantage of the Q&A session, you can simply deactivate this when making your booking.
Option 4: Live streaming directly from your company (headquarters, production facility etc.) or from your stand
Welcome visitors to your Web Session directly from your company’s premises. Take advantage of the session to report on your company and deliver a live presentation from your production facility or the reception area at your headquarters. Invite visitors to join you for an exclusive look behind the scenes.
Or would you prefer to participate in a hybrid event and enjoy the benefits of an exhibition stand on site? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to offer customers from the industry who are unable to travel to Frankfurt a welcome directly from your stand? You can make this reality by broadcasting your Web Session directly from your stand as part of the event programme. Make the most of your elaborate stand set-up and expand your reach far beyond the exhibition grounds.
Professional technical support on site is essential to ensure that your presentation comes off without a hitch – please commission someone to do this for you. Your technicians then give our technical department the signal to broadcast your session in our live stream. We will be happy to put you in touch with our technical partner – they are present throughout Germany. This makes it possible to provide your Web Session with support from a single source. On-site technical support is not included in the price of your Web Session.
All Web Sessions under Option 4 include a free Q&A session that allows you to personally contact participants during the steaming slot you have booked. For this Q&A, a chat window is opened for the entire duration of your Web Session that allows participants to ask you questions. Please make sure that there is someone to oversee the chat while you are on camera. If you would rather not take advantage of the Q&A session, you can simply deactivate this when making your booking.
All Web Sessions for Options 2, 3 and 4 are conducted in a single language of your choice. We offer an advance test run for all Web Sessions for these options. This takes place during the week before the event (test runs will be later if streaming from the stand). For organisational reasons, we urgently request that you honour your test date. To perform the test, it is essential that you use the same technical set-up under the same on-site conditions that will pertain when you are doing your live stream. For Options 2, 3 and 4, it is also possible to have the session recorded for a fee – this must be booked in advance.
Ticketing / Access authorisation
The day ticket costs 21,- EUR and entitles you to use the platform permanently.
The visitor can log in to the platform with the trade fair login.
After logging on to the platform for the first time, the visitor will be doing through an onboarding, which helps them to create their profile, such as questions that will be included in the matchmaking process. Visitors can also upload a photo and indicate which languages they speak.
The exhibitor pass also represents the access authorisation for exhibitor representatives on the platform in parallel. These are created in the exhibitor ticket portal by the exhibitor's main contact person. With the trade fair login, the exhibitor representative can log on to the platform and is directly assigned to the exhibitor profile. In advance, all exhibitor representative profiles are inactive and must be activated on the platform by the main contact person.
The main contact person is the company’s representative who corresponds with the trade fair team as their prior contact person. This person has admin rights on the platform and must activate the profiles of the exhibitor representatives. He or she can also appoint one or more representatives, who thus also have admin rights. In addition, the main contact person can edit the exhibitor profile.
You have the option of purchasing voucher cards for your customers. You will be charged 7.00 EUR for each purchased ticket up to 199 and 6.00 EUR for 200 or more after the event. You will also receive an overview of which customers accepted your invitation.
