Messe Frankfurt launches new platform for stand constructors

6 Nov 2019

In the fast-paced trade fair business, stand constructors and event agencies need a comprehensive source of up-to-the-minute information that can be accessed at any time. To ensure that they do not lose track of what is happening even with multiple contracts running simultaneously for various events at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds, Messe Frankfurt has launched “Built for Builders” – a new central platform for stand constructors and event agencies.

All the information with a few simple clicks

The portal, which can reached at, offers a clear overview of all the most important information for Messe Frankfurt events and guest events on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. In addition to general information such as news concerning the exhibition grounds, goods lifts in the exhibition halls, structural inspections and services for trusses and suspensions, the portal offers event-specific instructions and special details. These include set-up and dismantling times, parking and traffic regulations, technical guidelines and interactive site maps. Furthermore, the online portal boasts a clearly organised summary of all service numbers and email addresses that makes it possible to contact the right experts in person.

Before now, the exhibitors’ service providers had been forced to search through event websites or ask their contact persons whenever they needed this information. By launching its new platform, Messe Frankfurt is helping stand constructors and event agencies to accelerate their preparations for each event.

Straightforward answers to common questions

Simple and concise explanations are provided for a variety of topics in an appealing FAQ style that is easy to comprehend. Due to the fact that the information requirements of this target group often differ sharply from those of a trade fair's exhibitors, the focus is on a very specific type of information.

A newsletter has also been created especially for the stand constructor target group that focuses on their requirements while also informing them of changes and new developments that concern the exhibition grounds, rules and services. This ensures that service providers can keep their finger on the pulse of what is happening at Messe Frankfurt and not miss out on any of the latest news.
