Better, cheaper, more versatile: new rigging options in Hall 8 at Messe Frankfurt
In collaboration with its service partner UEBERKOPF, Messe Frankfurt has installed a new rigging substructure in the 30,000 square metre in Hall 8. The truss grid will enable exhibitors' rigging requirements to be realised more easily, quickly and cost-effectively in future. Another advantage is the reduction of the changeover time between the events in Hall 8.. This ensures greater flexibility in Messe Frankfurt's busy event calendar.
Messe Frankfurt raises the bar for growth
