In the following, we have compiled answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) for you.

Stand Set-up

How high is the hall? What kind of floor loading and lighting does the hall in question have? You can obtain this information at Technical Information - Traffic Regulations - Service Partners.

A preliminary hall plan of Cleanzone 2018 can be found here.

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 5.1:
Stand size up to 30 sqm:
Hall 5.1: 4.00m

Stand size above 30 sqm:
Hall 5.1: 5.00m (Marginal niche on the south side 4.50m)

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

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
Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1
D-60327 Frankfurt am Main

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.

The hall supports are shown in the hall plan as black rectangles or circles. The supports are clad up to a height of 3.00 m with white coated chipboard (except Hall 11.0, which has no support cladding). The cladding must not be subjected to any loads, or damaged. You can find the exact measurements and the position of the support(s) in the stand sketch. The measurements refer to the support cladding.

Unfortunately, suspensions are not possible in Hall 5.1.

The hall managers’ offices are marked by pictograms. The hall manager is your first point of contact for all on-the-spot questions and can be reached by telephone under:
Hall 5: +49 69 75 75-6305
Here you will also receive the cabin keys for your stand if it is built by our stand construction company MFS Fairconstruction.
