IT-supported system for logistics handling: FairLog

In order to improve efficiency and organization when setting up and taking down stands, automatica together with Messe München relies on an IT-supported system for logistics handling: FairLog!

Under the following link "User manual" you will find step-by-step instructions on how to register and use FairLog. The "checklist" once again summarises all the important steps briefly and concisely for you.

Notes on the safety and hygiene concept for stand constructors

To ensure that trade fairs and conferences can take place safely and successfully even during the coronavirus pandemic, Messe München and other Bavarian trade-fair companies have worked out a safety and hygiene concept, which was officially ratified by the Bavarian state government on 23 June 2020. The following link provides important information for stand builders.
