Important information concerning the suspensions


In past years, we have often been able to offer you flexible solutions in the suspension trade at short notice. Crisis-related disruptions, tense supply chains and sometimes associated material shortages force us to react appropriately.

For this reason, we absolutely need your signed order for suspensions by no later than 25.01.2024. Only then can we guarantee on-time execution until the start of the advanced set-up on 22.02.2024.

Please send us any requests that have not yet been submitted as soon as possible!

If we receive your signed order after 25.01.2024, we will unfortunately no longer be able to guarantee timely execution. In this case, you may have to reckon with delays in construction.

This is the quickest way to send us your enquiry for suspensions

It is best to use the Shop for Exhibitor Services for your enquiry. In the category “Stand engineering > Suspensions from the Hall Ceiling" section you will find
+ for Halls 4, 6 and 9 the option "Special Heavy-load points on request" and
+ for Halls 3, 8, 11 and 12 the option "Rigging on request".

In order to process your request as quickly as possible, we ask you to upload a technical drawing of your stand. This can be done during the ordering process in the shopping basket in the “Positioning Products" step. The drawing shall contain the following information:

+ Number of suspensions planned and their dimensioned positions
+ Total load on each suspension point in kg
+ The total load arising from these suspensions in kg
+ Transfer height of the planned suspensions

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our team at

Accessing the exhibition grounds during set-up and dismantling phases

Messe Frankfurt’s new Central Traffic Management system has offered customer vehicles optimised access to the exhibition grounds during the set-up and dismantling phases of events. For this purpose, we ask exhibitors, stand construction companies and freight forwarders to register online in advance.

Once you have a print-out of the registration confirmation, you can go to the specified check-in. Please follow the signs from the motorway exit F-Rebstock (address for your navigation device: Bruno-Poelke-Strasse).

During the set-up and dismantling phase (incl. early set-up and extended dismantling), vehicles may only access the exhibition grounds through the check-in. Here, the check-in staff will see whether a loading zone is available for you. If it is, you will be given an authorisation form specifying the gate through which you can access the exhibition grounds.

Please note: In case of high volume of traffic waiting times are possible at the check-in!
Please note that only vehicles with an authorisation form will be allowed on to the exhibition grounds.

More information is available in the Check-in guide and the FAQs.

This is where we provide you with the event-specific guidelines. The Stand Construction Authorisation form and other technical factsheets can be found in the general information.

Many answers about stand construction can also be found in the FAQs on the Light + Building website.
