Exhibition Stand

Custom or modular?

Alternatively, you may opt for a modular stand. Our shell schemes are easy to design and adapt to your individual requirements. They provide an excellent backdrop for your company's presence at the trade fair without the headache of having to design everything from scratch.

Please contact us or just click here, we will find the best solution together.



Fair Site

The Hamburg Fair site is right up front in terms of functionality and flexibility, with state-of-the-art halls designed for a wide range of different fairs, exhibitions and events. Organisers and exhibitors benefit from efficient processes and low cost.

Ceilings are largely free of pillars, giving plenty of design freedom, and permitting suspension of heavy loads. Every hall has excellent access facilities through at least one gate. Large logistics yards are available to reduce assembly and disassembly times. Parking spaces are available next to and below the exhibition halls.

There are four separate visitor entrances, so that a number of events can be held in parallel at the Fair site.

Event Catering at Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH

Our experienced catering partner, Käfer GmbH, provides comprehensive and professional food and beverage service for exhibitors and visitors.

The catering company Käfer offers the following events for organisers and their exhibitors:

Regardless of who or when - when Käfer does the catering, standard recipes are simply not on the menu. We serve according to taste - and in delicious bite-sizes. Creative concepts, original themes, and an unforgettable ambience. Our recipe for success is: think first, then act. This involves carefully considering the plans and needs of your client and then conceiving the optimum catering idea. By action, we mean working for absolute quality and ensuring a perfectly smooth process above all. At Käfer, each and every customer gets his own dedicated project manager to personally accompany the project from the very beginning. During the event, this person ensures not only that trained personnel are on hand at all times, but also that they are there for the client. Perfectly conceived and executed catering from Käfer is available nationally.

Exhibitors want uncomplicated, high-quality catering direct at their stand. Käfer provides you and your exhibitors with a team that has many years of experience in organisation and implementation of modern catering concepts – fast, flexible, competent, and at reasonable prices.

There are many options – e.g. display cooking directly at your stand, or delicious pancakes from the crêpe trolley, a choco fountain, a cocktail bar, or even a complete stand party – including the appropriate decorations and supporting programme on request! Käfer provides full service for every occasion, every size and every category.

Your exhibitors can use Käfer’s know-how and service to get more attention and increase the time spent by visitors at their stand, and to generate a pleasant atmosphere that helps to close good business deals.

On request, Käfer can prepare an individual quotation for every exhibitor. Käfer is available for personal discussion of any questions or requests.
