In the following, we have compiled answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) for you.
The basic construction height is 2.50 m. If stands are higher than 2.50 m, the sides facing the neighbouring stands must be smooth and white. The upper edge of the lighting / advertising etc. must be kept within the maximum construction height. Any advertising must be kept at least 1 metre away from the border to the neighbouring stand.
The building heights at hall 1.2:
Stand size up to 30 sqm:
Hall 1.2: 4.00m
Stand size above 30 sqm:
Hall 1.2: 6.50m
With stands that are open on one and two sides, 6 cm should be subtracted in each case from the stand-width stated, in order to obtain the clear inside dimensions.
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 (free of charge) at the Shop for Exhibitor Services. If you have any questions or require any alterations, 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 that are more than 100 sqm in area
- two-storey constructions
- walls higher than 4 m
- closed ceilings
- platforms higher than 0.20 m
- glass structures
- 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

Special circumstances applying to the side of the stand bordering 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.

There are two ways in which you can register your vehicle. You can register your vehicle in advance online, or you can register on site at Messe Frankfurt’s registration areas on the day you wish to enter. To do so, please follow the “Check-In” signs.

In the event that the vehicle plate number changes, please report to the registration area on the day you wish to enter. Personnel on site will update the information for you.

As soon as an unloading area becomes available at your exhibition hall, as the driver you will be sent an SMS text message containing your entry time and the corresponding entry gate.
When you depart the exhibition grounds in your vehicle, you will give your vehicle pass to personnel at the gate, or they will simply scan it in order to register your departure.
No – a vehicle pass is only valid for one entry and exit.
