FeuerTrutz: Exhibitors' frequently asked questions
Specific FAQ on stand construction in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic
As of 18 May 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic requires adjustments in stand design and planning of the exhibition to meet the general requirements of the pandemic. NürnbergMesse places the protection of its exhibitors and visitors above everything else.
With the present FAQ, NürnbergMesse provides its exhibitors with an orientation aid to ensure safe and successful staging of the event under the currently valid official regulations.
The dynamic development of the pandemic situation does not permit reliable forecasts. The FAQs are constantly updated by NürnbergMesse if the general conditions change.
The stand design must take into account the necessity of social distancing. This includes, for example, routing or avoiding bottlenecks. It is recommended to set up separate waiting areas. In the case of active presentation of exhibits or product demonstrations, we particularly recommend taking appropriate precautions (e.g. minimum distance from people, hygiene measures at the exhibit, allocation of time slots for presentations).
If you are unable to implement the measures with your stand size, please contact your contact persons in the exhibition team for an individual solution.
The visitor guidance system on the stand must ensure that the current minimum distance of 1.50 m between people can be maintained. Compliance with the distance regulations can be ensured, for example, by floor markings, room dividers or traffic light systems.
A minimum width of 2.00 m is recommended for aisles to ensure safe evasion.
The rules of social distancing must also be observed for meeting areas. We recommend a maximum meeting size of eight people.
Since 27 April 2020, customers of shops, shopping centres and department stores in Bavaria have been obliged to wear a mask when using local public transport and the associated facilities. This obligation applies to all persons from the seventh year of age. Ideally this is done by using an everyday mask, alternatively cloths or scarves of dense fabric can be used which completely cover the mouth and nose.
NürnbergMesse will continue to apply this regulation for all events on the exhibition grounds until further notice.
We recommend cleaning and disinfecting door handles, handrails and frequently used surfaces regularly (several times an hour).
Please provide sufficient disinfection and washing facilities for exhibitors and visitors at the stand. NürnbergMesse will of course also provide facilities here.
For stand construction, the use of smooth surfaces that are easy to clean is recommended. For furniture, for example, chairs without armrests reduce physical contact.
In sensitive areas such as reception or catering, where the number of contacts poses a particularly high risk of infection, we recommend additional safety measures such as partitions (e.g. made of Plexiglas) known from the retail trade to protect against droplet infection.
Persons at the stand
There are currently no official requirements regarding the density of people in exhibition halls. If a regulation exists, we will include it here accordingly. The rules of social distancing must be observed.
Please train your stand personnel intensively about all measures and official regulations in the run-up to the trade fair.
NürnbergMesse will only allow registered persons to enter the exhibition during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes exhibitors, visitors, media representatives and service personnel. To ensure that contacts can be traced in the aftermath, it is recommended that all stand visitors are recorded.
NürnbergMesse recommends using the lead tracking system LeadSuccess, which has a data interface to all registered visitor data.
Personalized exhibitor passes enable NürnbergMesse to document the stand personnel; documentation for your own records is also recommended.
Please contact your exhibition team if letters of invitation (similar to visa application for third countries) are required for cross-border travel.
If parts of your stand personnel cannot be on site due to travel restrictions, we will be happy to assist you. For expert discussions, virtual forms of presentation such as live video switching at the stand are possible. Hostesses and interpreters are available through our ServicePartners to answer general visitor inquiries.
The existing hygiene regulations must be observed. In the case of catering, above all the applicable regulations on social distance and the additional official requirements must be taken into account.
The NürnbergMesse partners will be pleased to assist you if you have any queries.
Assembly and dismantling
As during the trade fair, assembly and dismantling are subject to registration. Persons are admitted to the exhibition halls by scanning. NürnbergMesse service providers regulate the number of persons in the halls and in the loading yards.
The official guidelines (social distancing, hygiene regulations) must be observed.

The Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA) charges a fee of EUR 0.60 per square metre of exhibition space for the representation of your interests.
NürnbergMesse GmbH collects the corresponding amount to forward it to the AUMA.
As FeuerTrutz is purely a trade fair, the sale of exhibition goods at the stand is not permitted.
Design and rent your complete stand really easily online using our exhibition stand configurator. A complete stand is the cost-effective alternative to an individual stand. The smart modular system provides a lot of scope for your design ideas and offers you simple complete solutions.
We ask for your understanding that no partially or full dismantling of a stand and products is possible before the official end of FeuerTrutz. The stand staff may also not be removed before the end of the exhibition. It is for the benefit of all the exhibitors that the exhibition runs free of disruption for its entire duration.
Please note that NürnbergMesse GmbH will charge a fee of EUR 800 in the event of a contravention of this. In addition, NürnbergMesse GmbH shall reserve the right to bar an exhibitor who has caused a disruption due to the premature dismantling of a stand from the next event.
