Compact information for stand constructors

Important information in brief

Maximum stand height

The maximum height for strucutres or advertising material of all stand constructions (incl. signs, banners and other advertising and construction elements) is set at 4.50m, insofar as this is permitted by the hall ceiling and any fixed structures that may be present. Higher stand heights of up to 6.50m are permissible in halls 1 and 6-9 without special acceptance. In halls 4, 5, 10 and 11 a transgression of the maximum stand height is possible, depending on the height of the hall and after special acceptance by Koelnmesse.

As long as the technical guidelines are observed when designing and erecting stands, there is no need to submit for acceptance drawings for one-storey stands that do not exceed the permitted height.

All other stands and designs (e.g. two storey stands) must be accepted, particulary if the stand features special structures or meeting areas, or static calculations are required.

Plans must be submitted for acceptance by Koelnmesse in good time before the work is carried out, at least 6 weeks before construction commences. These documents, which can be scrutinized, consist of ground plans, views and design cross sections with all measurements.

The maximum height for structures or advertising material of all stand constructions in passages and boulevards is 3.00m.

Stand construction approval

The application for a stand construction acceptance is made exclusively via the Koelnmesse digital platform (Delegatis).

For this purpose, aprox. 12 weeks before construction starts the exhibitor will be sent an e-mail with an individual link to the digital questionnaire. The questionnaire must be completed in time, but at least 6 weeks before the start of construction period. If verifiable documents are required for acceptance, these will be requested in the questionnaire and must be uploaded there. Verifiable documents may include dimensioned floor plans, views and constructive sections. In special cases, e.g. when constructing a double storey, a static calculation or further certificates may be necessary.

If you have any questions about the digital platform, please contact . Acceptance is not processed by e-mail.

Hall supports

In the southern halls (2-5, 10-11) of the exhibition centre you find hall supports. Please find information and dimensions of the hall supports here: Hall supports
