    NürnbergMesse GmbH collects the corresponding amount to forward it to the AUMA.

  • Is the direct sale of exhibition goods to visitors permitted?

    As GaLaBau is purely a trade fair, the sale of exhibition goods at the stand is not permitted.

  • How can I hire a complete rental stand?
    Design and rent your complete stand really easily online using our exhibition stand configurator. A complete stand is the cost-effective alternative to an individual stand. The smart modular system provides a lot of scope for your design ideas and offers you simple complete solutions.
  • Can I dismantle my stand before the official end of the exhibition?
    We ask for your understanding that no partially or full dismantling of a stand and products is possible before the official end of GaLaBau. The stand staff may also not be removed before the end of the exhibition. It is for the benefit of all the exhibitors that the exhibition runs free of disruption for its entire duration.

    Please note that NürnbergMesse GmbH will charge a fee of EUR 800 in the event of a contravention of this. In addition, NürnbergMesse GmbH shall reserve the right to bar an exhibitor who has caused a disruption due to the premature dismantling of a stand from the next event.
