Please note: Special Formalities for the TOP HAIR 2018
The Technical Guidelines are those generally applicable for Messe Düsseldorf trade fairs with the following exceptions/alterations:
9 Derogations / Additions
By derogation from Item 13 of Part B, General Terms and Conditions of Participation, the following shall apply for TOP HAIR International 2018:
Shows and PA systems are not permitted. Unlawfully installed loudspeakers or similar will be removed at the exhibitor's expense.
Any unauthorised exceedance of the allocated stand area by way of stand construction or similar shall be punishable by a fine of € 500.- for each violation. The treatment of several violations as continuation of offense shall be excluded. We reserve the right to claim damages. To ensure a good overall impression Messe Düsseldorf has devised guidelines regarding the standard of stand construction and design. The specifications are contained in the Technical Regulations which are binding for exhibitors and stand contractors. Messe Düsseldorf reserves the right to give the necessary instructions on (e.g. on the installation of floor coverings or stand boundary walls).
For both exhibitors and stand contractors the Technical Regulations constitute an integral part of the contract. These are available in the currently valid version on request, subject to subsequent modifications, and become binding for the event. The exhibitor undertakes to put up wall panels on all closed sides of the stand and provide a holohedral floor covering. These wall panels can be ordered through ServiceCompass at Messe Düsseldorf. Missing stand boundary walls or missing floor covering will be erected or laid by Messe Düsseldorf at the expense of the exhibitor. The exhibitor must take into account the character and appearance of the trade fair as a whole.
It is the responsibility of the relevant stand owner to ensure that, where back panels of the stand have a height of 2.5 metres or more, the panels are designed clean and neutrally within the white, grey or beige spectrum, without violating the interests of neighbouring stands. (Item 4.7.1)
Notwithstanding Article 4.3 of the Technical Guidelines, the maximum height for constructions is 6.00 m. Only truss elements for lightning can be mounted at 8,00 m.
The first part of Sentence 4 of Article 4.7.1 of the Technical Guidelines of Messe Düsseldorf, („No more than 30% of the stand facing any one aisle may be of closed construction unless stated to the contrary in the Conditions of Participation") shall not apply. The closed construction facing the aisle shall be designed by the owner of the relevant stand in an appealing, clean manner so as not to affect the neighbours' interests or the overall appearance of the trade fair.
Notwithstanding Article 4.9.2 of the Technical Guidelines, an upper level may only be added to a stand for up to 30% of the stand space
