FAQ – Fully informed

We have compiled detailed information you need to know during the fair preparations. If you still have any questions, our contact persons will be happy to help you at any time.

FAQ's Corona conditions

Special times also raise new questions. We have tried to answer the most important questions for you in advance.

Your non-binding registration remains valid. We will contact you in the next few weeks to talk about the reduction in stand space and concrete stand proposals.

At this point you can cancel free of charge.

As things stand today, we assume that the Formnext 2020 will take place as planned. However, the protection of the health of all exhibitors, visitors, media representatives and our employees has top priority. Should it therefore become apparent in late summer that it is not advisable to hold the event due to the developments of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will probably decide on a cancellation by 09.09.2020 at the latest. In case of a cancellation we will reimburse payments already made to us for services that were agreed with us but not provided.

In this point our terms and conditions have not changed: After receipt of the stand confirmation there is no free cancellation possibility. You will find our cancellation conditions in our General Terms and Conditions under point 17a "premature termination of the contract".

Yes, there is. You can find them here.

We and the Messe Frankfurt team will be happy to advise you if you have any questions. Please feel free to contact us.


You will receive the first partial invoice in the amount of 50% after receipt of the stand confirmation. The second instalment of 50% will be sent to you in September.

Hall planning

Due to the Corona Pandemic, hall planning has been delayed. In order to be able to maintain the necessary distance and hygiene rules for the protection of all participants, we have adapted the hall planning accordingly. We would like to thank all exhibitors already registered for their patience!

The Formnext team will start planning at the end of June / beginning of July and will contact the registered exhibitors as soon as possible.

You will receive the first instalment of 50% with the stand confirmation.
You will receive the final invoice from September 2020.

Our cancellation policy can be found in our general terms of contract. Cancellation is possible free of charge until the stand is confirmed. After the stand has been confirmed, 100% cancellation costs are incurred.

If you have not booked one of our stand packages, the price for the stand rental refers to the pure area in the exhibition hall. The marketing fee and the AUMA fee are still obligatory additional costs. AUMA is the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry. An overview of the services included in the marketing flat rate can be found here.


Provided that these Technical Guidelines have been observed in designing and building the exhibition stand, single-storey stands located in exhibition halls shall be exempted from the requirement to submit planning documents for approval as long as a stand area of 100 sqms and a height of 4.0 m have not been exceeded.

Special structures and special constructions require approval and are subject to additional cost. Special constructions include for example: – Two-storey stands – Walls over 4.0 m in height – Closed ceilings – Platforms higher than 0.20 m – Glass constructions – Moving components

Stand construction permits: Stand plans drawn to a suitable scale (e.g. 1:100) complete with dimensions, floor plans and perspective views shall be submitted for approval in duplicate by no later than six weeks before the start of setup to: 

By Post:
Messe Frankfurt Venue GmbH
Technical Event Management
Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1
D-60327 Frankfurt am Main

By E-Mail:

After the stand plans have been inspected, one copy will be stamped as having been approved and returned to the exhibitor/stand constructor if accepted. Stand construction may not commence until the plans have been stamped as having been approved.

Stand construction

Stand sides adjoining an aisle must be open. Solid walls must not constitute more than 50 % of the total length of the open side where the wall adjoins an aisle. Where the stand wall is at least 1 m away from the aisle, a solid wall constituting more than 50 % of the total wall is acceptable. Further information and recommendations for stand design can be found in the Covid-19 leaflet at the end of the stand construction guidelines.

Stand partitions

The exhibitor agrees to erect 2.5 m high stand partition walls on all closed sides of the stand space. Exhibitor not using his/her own stand partition or rental stand, must order stand partition walls. Where the back wall of a stand extends beyond 2.5 m in height, the wall must be all white, clean, opaque, smooth and free of installation materials. Advertising must have a distance of 1.0 m from the neighbouring stand.

Guidelines for stand layout

The Exhibitors are required to decorate their stands in a manner appropriate to the event. Stands which do not conform to an acceptable standard will only be approved by the organizer once the appropriate changes have been made. This will also be the case for inappropriate advertising. Exhibitors must provide an appropriate floor covering for their stand.

The stand construction guidelines for Formnext can be found here. Please also be sure to read the factsheet "Pandemic Covid 19 measures at the exhibition stand" at the end of the document.

The hall supports are shown on your stand proposal. If the hall supports are completely on your stand, they may be integrated into the stand design. The exact dimensions and position of the support(s) can be found in the stand sketch of your stand proposal

Under “User Management” in the menu all the order authorisations which you have issued, and which you can also revoke, are set out clearly.

Please contact your contractual partner: He has the possibility to authorize you to do so in our shop for exhibitor services. He can send you a stand code. This will enable you to order for the exhibitor's stand on his account.
