    Overview of all exhibition sectors at BAU

  • How can I apply for BAU 2017, and is there a application deadline?

    To participate in BAU 2017, you must complete an application form. Based on the information that you provide on your form, we will see if your company is eligible to be admitted to the fair as an exhibitor. There is no official application deadline.

    Dates and deadlines for exhibitors

  • When do you begin assigning stand space, and when will I receive my stand proposal (stand location and stand number)?

    We begin allocating stand space in September 2015. If we are able to accommodate you, you will probably receive your stand proposal for BAU 2017 in March 2016.

  • What exactly have we ordered by registering for the fair?

    Your application refers to stand space. It automatically includes your communication fee (mandatory entry in the exhibitor directory—online and in the catalog), the AUMA (Association of the German Trade Fair Industry) fee and the fee for waste disposal at the trade-fair center during the fair. Your application also includes a down payment for services.

    Each exhibitor receives a contingent of exhibitor passes, the number of which depends on the size of their stand.

    Other services such as stand construction and related equipment and services (e.g. partition walls, carpeting, electricity) as well as any additional exhibitor passes and advertising materials that you want can be ordered at our Exhibitor Shop. We will inform you automatically as soon as the Exhibitor Shop is available.

  • Is application binding?

    Until you confirm your stand proposal, your application for BAU 2017 is non-binding. In other words, you can cancel your application until then without incurring any costs.

    However, we need you to complete the application form in advance so that we can process your information and assign you stand space.

  • Can co-exhibitors exhibit at our exhibition stand? And if so, how do they apply?

    Exhibitors can apply co-exhibitors to exhibit at their stand as long as they are eligible to participate based on the product index. The necessary application form for co-exhibitors must be completed and signed by the main exhibitor. Application co-exhibitors is free of charge. The main exhibitor will only be invoiced for the mandatory communication fee of EUR 425.

    The mandatory communication fee allows co-exhibitors to enjoy the same benefits as main exhibitors. In other words, they are listed as an independent company in the exhibition catalog, in the online exhibitor directory and in the BAU app.

  • What participation fees should I expected as a co-exhibitor?

    The application fee for co-exhibitors is EUR 425, and it already includes the mandatory communication fee. The main exhibitor is invoiced for this fee.

  • How many exhibitor passes do exhibitors receive?

    For the duration of the fair, each exhibitor receives a certain number of free exhibitor passes for their stand.

    Up to 20 m² stand space: 3 exhibitor passes
    As of 21 m², each additional 10 m² or portion thereof: 1 additional exhibitor pass

    Additional exhibitor passes may be ordered for a fee. Exhibitor passes are only intended for stand personnel and may not be passed on to third parties. We reserve the right to confiscate exhibitor passes if they are misused.

    Including co-exhibitors at your stand does not increase the number of exhibitor passes.

  • Do co-exhibitors get free exhibitor passes?

    Co-exhibitors do not receive any free exhibitor passes. Exhibitor passes can be ordered at the BAU Exhibitor Shop as of mid-May 2016.

  • What happens if I want to cancel my participation?

    Apart from its statutory rights to withdraw from the exhibition, the exhibitor has no right to withdraw from its contact with Messe München. If the exhibitor withdraws from the exhibition, Messe München GmbH is entitled to otherwise dispose of the rented space regardless of whether the exhibitor concerned has a right to cancel.

    If an exhibitor cancels its participation without being entitled to do so and, as such, defaults on fulfilling the rental agreement without good reason, it shall pay Messe München GmbH the participation fee if the stand space is left empty during the event and if Messe München GmbH is able to re-let the exhibition space in question to the best of its ability.

  • Is there a list of all dates and deadlines?

    A list of all Dates and deadlines for BAU 2017 is available here.

  • What is the AUMA fee?
