Standard stand walls will be erected around the approved areas. The stand area will then be bounded only by the standard stand walls on its perimeter. Within this area, additional folding walls may be erected, posters may be attached to the walls, and exhibits may be put in position, etc. The exhibition areas are lighted and carpeted (colour on your own choice). One round table and two bar stools are included. Further stand furnishings can be ordered but must be paid separately. The maximum height of the construction is 2.5 m. The depth of the stands is 2.0 m and the width is 3.0 m.
The rental fee for the minimum required exhibition space (6 sq m) including two persons staffing the stand who may also attend the entire program of the congress including the evening event is €3,100,00 plus German VAT (costs for electricity are included). Each additional square meter of exhibition space will cost €200.00 plus German VAT.
6.2. Individual stand (organized by exhibitor)
You may also conduct the entire construction and dismantling of your stand using your own design. You must comply with all the applicable legal provisions and other requirements. Stands must be similar to those at a trade show, i.e. they should comprise rear and side walls. The use of folding walls only (for example) is not permitted. Stands must be constructed and dismantled without any damage to the building (e.g. nothing may be fastened to the building using screws). The maximum height of the construction is 2.5 m. The depth of the stands may vary from 2.0 m up to max. 3.0 m.
