Beware of Unauthorised Exhibitor Directories

We have appointed Neureuter Fair Media GmbH to compile our catalogues. You can use the online ordering system to modify your entries in the catalogue/online exhibitor directory and order additional services.

Please note: Other publishers that issue similar catalogues, directories and lists of participants are not authorised by Leipziger Messe GmbH. Leipziger Messe GmbH would like to warn you about unauthorised trade fair catalogues and directories with misleading offers that are often sent out prior to events. These appear to be offering a free listing. However, the catalogue entries are subject to a fee and can incur expenses of several thousand euros. Well-known examples of such unauthorised directories are the "Expoguide", the "International Fairs Directory" and the catalogue entitled "Exhibitors NETWORK".

Help: Further information as well as advice on what to do if you have already signed for an entry in an unauthorised directory can be found here and on the AUMA e.V. information sheet.

Client Invitations

We have simplified the system for ordering your client invitations.

Along with your stand assignment, we sent you an individual promotion code for your company. Using this code and at no extra costs, you can invite your clients to visit the trade fair for free.

No additional fees will be collected after the trade fair for redeemed tickets as these costs are already included in the media flat rate.

Please let recipients of the promotion code know that it can only be redeemed online via the online ticket shop at . The codes are valid for free day tickets that entitle the holder only to visitor admission during the regular opening times.

Stand construction approval

Stand construction registration and applications for technical permits and hazardous exhibits have been replaced by a semi-automated approval process for your planned trade fair stand. This offers you an easy and convenient way to communicate the necessary information about your planned trade fair stand. You will then receive information about any requirements necessary to ensure safe operations.

Our event technology team will send you a corresponding email with a link and password for a separate FAQ page. Once you have initially registered using this one-time password, we recommend you set up a personalised password so that you can save your data to work on later. Please complete your entries in good time.

The control procedures carried out during the construction, breakdown and operational periods to check on compliance with technical guidelines, applicable laws, orders and provisions are designed to fulfil operational responsibilities and will continue to be essential in ensuring the safe use of the venue.
