Exhibitor Requirements
The PADDLEexpo is a global paddle sport trade fair. An exhibitor is admitted if the company does business, offers products and can demonstrate expertise in canoeing, kayaking, stand-up-paddling or accessories directly related to paddling. Other products from the company’s range can be exhibited, but only if they play a minor role at the stand.

Participation Fee
72,00 € / m2 (Areas up to 12 m2 are 864,- € flat), plus. 19% VAT for German exhibitors or CE-Exhibitors without valid VAT-Ident.-No.
The fee is due within 10 days. The fee is for participation and for the pure floor space. Optionally dividing walls, carpet, power supply and services are not included in this fee.

Stand layout (dimensions)
The first priority for the floor plan is the best use of space for optimising the ability to do business, keeping costs down, and providing the best possible selling atmosphere.
As a guideline by experience, non-binding:
1-28 m2 >> stand min. 4 m deep
29+ m2 >> stand min. 5 m deep
4-side open: min. 140 m2
3-side open: min. 70 m2
2-side open: min. 50 m2

Stand Party
A party at your stand is a welcome addition. Since there will be a joint industry party on the second day, it makes sense to schedule these the first day of the fair. On the third day, stand breakdown begins.
The fair will close at 18:00, so you should not start your stand party before 17:30. We want to ensure that business discussions at neighbouring stands can continue until 18:00. Thus, please plan that any promotions that may be loud or otherwise disturbing do not occur until after that time. No music please until 18:00!
The fair will close at 18:00. If there are still people at your stand past that time, it will be necessary to name a person who will be responsible for your event (see also VStättV – Germany’s Regulations for Public Assemblies). This person must be present and onsite from the start to the finish of your party or event and also available by telephone the entire time.

Party registration required before 20. August 2020
In order to be able to plan for security staff, fire and rescue services, as well as sanitary services, etc. we will need registration of your stand party before 20. August 2020. For registration, just send an e-mail with the following information:
• Beginning and end of your event
• Maximum number of persons estimated to be present
• Name of the responsible person
• Mobil phone number of the responsible person
Your stand party must not continue past 23:00 (in the event schedule, you will find 22:00, listed as the end. Thus, this leaves you a one-hour leeway to wrap up the party and clear the hall). At 23:00 every person needs to have left the hall. If this time limit is exceeded, the organiser of the stand party will be invoiced for any additional expenses incurred. The organiser of the stand party will also be held liable for any damage to either property or person. Please verify your insurance coverage in such cases.
The organiser of the stand party will also be responsible for its termination. Please do not admit additional participants to your stand party than there is room. Occupying other stands or the aisles is not permitted except as a route to leave the hall or go to the nearest WC. You will find the address for registering music events with Gema at technical guidelines.

Earlier Setup
This arrangement only applies for stands at a stretch of more than 100 square metres by one leaser (your 2020 PADDLEexpo invoice shows minimum 100 m2, respectively more than Euro 7200,- net). Such companies may enter the hall one day before the fair starts in order to set up their stands. The charge for that extra day is Euro 450,- net per stand and will be invoiced directly by Messe-Nuremberg.
Download the application form “Early Set-Up”
The invoice for that extra set-up day will be issued to you directly by the owner of the hall (Nuremberg Fair Co.). Contact:
