Exhibitors who offer visitors something tasty will keep them at the stand longer.

For example, you can offer gastronomic specialties of your region. You are not allowed to sell food or beverages, however. By the way, our subsidiary, Capital Catering, can help you with all questions regarding the gastronomical well-being of your guests:


We wish to indicate to our exhibitors that Messe Berlin either produces its catalogs itself or awards exclusive contracts for the production and marketing of such catalogs.

Any publishing firms we work with will introduce themselves to the exhibitors as the exclusive catalog publisher for Messe Berlin or the respective fair project.

For BUS2BUS the exclusive partner is: NEUREUTER FAIR MEDIA
in collaboration with: Editorial Team Virtual Market Place®

Once exhibitors have been admitted to a fair, their basic entry in the official catalog is assured. Furthermore, all exhibitors will be contacted by the editorial team of Virtual Market Place and NEUREUTER FAIR MEDIA so that they may complete their entries in the printed catalog and the online index should they so desire.

Please feel free to contact us at any time should you receive a proposal and have doubts as regards the party submitting such proposal. If you have already signed an agreement with an external offeror in the erroneous assumption that this company is connected in any way to our official index of exhibitors, we urgently recommend that you contact an attorney prior to expiry of the period for revoking and/or voiding such contracts.

When do you have to arrive? Where precisely should you arrive? What do you need to know when you get there? Find all the important times, locations and service & ticket information below.

In order to facilitate coordination of the events and organizational matters, we would appreciate it if you would register all events that are to be held at your stand with the fair’s management.
