Booth layouts, services, and equipment

There are two general types of booth layouts, booth and display (displays are reserved for not-for-profit organizations).

  • A standard booth (small, medium, or large; booth numbers 01–62 and 101–120) consists of aluminium sections with white plastic-coated panels and one spotlight with 100 W per 6 m2. The front panel consists of an aluminium frame containing a white plastic-coated panel with the booth number, exhibitor's name, and logo (fascia board). As individual layouts of this fascia board are possible based on the exhibitor's CI, we encourage exhibitors to select this option in the online booking form and provide a respective layout design as a vector graphic file (.svg or .eps). The fascia board with a 4C print (CMYK) is included in the booth rental. Furniture is not included in the booth rental and must be ordered separately at our partner company SYMA.

    one table (1300 x 780 mm), and two chairs. These displays are reserved for not-for-profit organizations only.

  • All booths are provided with grey carpeting and 220 V electricity (single-phase, earthed, with 2 kW including one plug of 220 V). Power plug converters for different socket types are not provided. The power supply as described is only provided once per exhibitor (regardless of the number of rented booths).
  • All booths are provided with a wired internet connection with 1 Mbps included in the booth rental. Higher-bandwidth connections can be ordered separately from our partner company, H82. Please note that you will receive a dynamic IP address for the internet connection. However, if you require a static IP address, please contact us by email.
  • The rental includes cleaning and waste disposal on the set-up day (Sunday, 7 April 2018). However, cleaning and waste disposal during the conference week must be ordered separately from our partner company SYMA.
  • For any further technical equipment, additional furniture, catering, and other services, please see the supplier manuals.

Fascia board design

As an individual fascia board design following your corporate design is included in the rental price, we ask you to upload your prepared file as a vector graphic file (.svg or .eps). Depending on your booth layout (row or corner booth), you are asked to either upload one file or two files (long side and short side). The booth number must not be included in your design as it will be added by us. The deadline for uploading your fascia board design is 23 January 2018.

Exhibitors who depart before Thursday or Friday at noon will be blacklisted with the possibility of a penalty fee.

Exhibitors who deliver to IML directly by truck are kindly requested to use Gate 1 (Tor 1) for delivery or pick-up. Exhibitors who bring or remove their material by car only (not exceeding a vehicle height of 2 m) are kindly asked to proceed to Gate 4 (Tor 4). There will be freight elevators available from Gate 4 (Level -3) to the exhibition area (Yellow Level 0).
