What is the maximum building height in the exhibition halls?

  • The maximum height of the exhibition halls is 10 meters. The organisation does not have a maximum build height, but advises not to build the stand higher than 6 meters due to rigging from the ceiling.
  • Exhibitors with stands higher than 2.50 meters are required to finish the back of their stand so no wires or woodwork is visible. The preferred color of this finish is white.If exhibitors (or their stand builders) ignore this rule, the stand will be finished by stand constructor and any costs incurred will be charged to the exhibitor.
  • Please note that stands located underneath the balconies have a height restriction, the maximum building height is 3 meters. These stands are marked with a green star on the floor plan.
