Ideas welcome: Have your Custom-Built Stand approved.

Every custom-built stand must be authorised by us.

Authorisation of stand plans is valid only for the specified locations and must be applied for each year new.
In some cases, Messe Frankfurt may also require an additional assessment of the plans as well as approval of the completed stand. Any costs arising from this will be charged to the exhibitor or the stand constructor by Messe Frankfurt.

The exhibitor is responsible for the static safety of the stand. If the stand is more than four metres high it might be necessary for Messe Frankfurt to carry out an inspection and give approval. This could lead to costs incurred, which would be payable by the exhibitor or stand fitters. Such costs are separate from the fees for over-height stands, which are charged according to our price list.

What we need from you:

  • Special permit applications for early construction and extended dismantling (only possible for Custom-Built stands from 40 sqm)
  • If necessary, detailed sketches (floor plans, sections and views) in which external and height dimensions are clearly visible.
  • Stand plans


Application for early access

For early access to Frankfurter Buchmesse 2019, 765 euros are charged for two or three days (from 10.10. or 11.10.), or 180 euros for one day (12.10.2019).

The exhibition site will be open each day from 7 am to 9 pm to those with early access permits.
An early access permit will only be granted if a plan of your stand for 2019 is submitted.
