There will be new Expo Space this year, since the ground-level of the Unperfekthaus Hotel (where main Expo was before) is rented out to 3rd party now and no longer part of the venue. But at the same time Unperfekthaus knocked out some walls and made bigger floors in 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor and those spaces are perfect for Expo, they have light, balcony access and coffee/softdrink stations. BUT … space is pretty limited and since these are the main floors, they cannot be 100% locked over the night since it is a fire escape route and Stage for Show nights has an 2nd Floor exit, so at least 1st and 2nd floor cannot be completely locked, but have no public traffic.
Full food buffet, Softdrinks and Coffee/Tea flatrate is included for expo days (Fri.-Sun). For one, two or three persons, depending which booth size you chose. If you have more staff, please let us know, Food (mandatory) can be booked additionally.
The Expo setup can start on Friday already from 9am – delivery and storage before that is NOT possible! We are checking with the venue if and when they will be open and available for possible shipments or such on wed and thu, but can’t promise for now (it was okay the years before)!
For the participants, the Expo opens this year (as always) Friday at 1pm (class before that is fri. 11am – 12:30pm and a lunch break until 2pm), so there is at least 4 hours of time for setting up the booths! The (already 2018 established) new schedule structure will have two bigger breaks: from 12:30-2pm and 5:30-7pm. There are also short breaks between classes at 3:30 and 4pm. Expect those to be the “hot” shopping hours.
