How high can I build my stand?
The minimum construction height is 2.50 m. The maximum height varies from hall to hall, but is max. 8.00 m. Please refer to the technical data sheets of the halls at www.achema.de/technical-regulations. Stands with a size up to 30 m² are allowed a max. stand construction height of 4.00 m. If applicable, suspensions can be higher. The rear sides of partitions adjoining neighbouring stands must be smooth and white above a height of 2.50 m. In any case the visible rear sides have to be in an optically perfect condition. Advertising media, logos, etc. which are higher than the boundary walls of the exhibitor’s own stand are to be kept at least 1.00 m from the border of the neighbouring stand. Two-storey structures are permissible in the halls, provided this is technically possible.
What stands require a construction permit?
The following stands require a construction permit: all stands with a surface area exceeding100 m²; stands that are higher than 4.00 m; mobile stands; constructions in the outdoor area; temporary structures; 2-storey stands; stands with special constructions (e.g. closed ceilings, platforms higher than 0.20 m; glass constructions; moving components; screening or spectator rooms; stages/platforms). The conditions for the above-mentioned stands and the corresponding forms can be found at www.achema.de/technical-regulations. Please upload the stand plan for approval as well as all necessary documents in the ACHEMA Exhibitor Portal. The information sheets ‘Inspection of constructions requiring approval’, ‘Presentation of exhibits’ and ‘Exhibits with chemical or physical hazard potential’ that can be downloaded with the Technical Regulations in the ACHEMA Exhibitor Portal serve as assisting guidelines.
Where do I get my stand plan?
The main exhibitor and if applicable sub-accounts that have been created can download the stand plan in the ACHEMA Exhibitor Portal under "Documents".
Where do I submit my stand plan for approval?
Please upload the stand plan for approval as well as all necessary documents in the ACHEMA Exhibitor Portal. The information sheets ‘Inspection of constructions requiring approval’, ‘Presentation of exhibits’ and ‘Exhibits with chemical or physical hazard potential’ that can be downloaded with the Technical Regulations in the ACHEMA Exhibitor Portal serve as assisting guidelines.
What do the supporting columns in the halls look like?
The supporting columns in the halls are shown on your stand plan (see the key to the respective plan). They are clad with white laminated chipboard up to a height of 3.00 m (exceptions: Hall 4.0 - cladding is 7.00 m high, Halls 3 and 11.0 - no cladding). The cladding must not be damaged or subjected to loads. The exact dimensions are indicated on your stand plan - they refer to the column cladding.
What load-bearing capacity and lighting do the individual halls have?
Please refer to the technical data sheets of the halls at www.achema.de/technical-regulations.
Are suspensions possible?
Suspensions are possible in most halls (exceptions: Passage connecting 5.1 to 6.1, Galleria and foyers). In Halls 3, 8, 11 and partly Hall 9.0 it is necessary to request an offer. All suspensions are subject to approval. The hanging can only be carried out by Messe Frankfurt's contractors and has to be ordered through DECHEMA. Orders have to be accompanied by a layout sketch and, in some cases, a load diagram. More detailed information can be found at www.achema.de/technical-regulations, 4.7.5 ff.
Are stand partitions already in place?
Stand partitions will not be in place. From November 2017 we will offer stand packages via the ACHEMA Exhibitor Portal. It is also possible to construct your own stand.
What is the look of the stand number signs at ACHEMA?
You will find a sketch of the ACHEMA stand number signs on page 10 of the Technical Regulations at www.achema.de/technical-regulations. Stands can be constructed up to the aisle boundary.
