Traffic information for exhibitors and suppliers

Messe Berlin’s new VisiFair system ensures stress-free and on-schedule planning. The distribution and allocation of time slots for the various loading zones reduces congestion at the entrance gates considerably, thus saving precious time when assembling and dismantling stands.

➤ Exhibitors and suppliers can only enter the trade fair grounds for assembly and disassembly work after registering with the system and pre-booking a loading zone.
