Frankfurt Fair Ground
The Messe Frankfurt venue provides 356,000 m² hall space within ten different halls, mostly with two or three floor levels. Behind Hannover this is the second largest German venue.
Stand locations on the upper floors of those multi-level halls have one big disadvantage. During the peak set-up days can you lose many hours by waiting in a queue in front of the material elevators when you move in your stand building material. We advise you strongly to start your booth set up as early as possible. The aisles get crowded with temporarily stored stand building material very soon and often, the elevator waiting time will increase and available parking opportunities for you truck close to the nearest hall gate will diminish.
Digital printing suppliers
There are two different digital printing studios located on the fairground (see venue map above). One in the Galleria section between hall 8 and 9 and the other one called “Edel Messereklame” outside of hall 8 in an annex building. I prefer the latter because they are official supplier of Messe Frankfurt, have a large workshop on site and charge reasonable prices.
DIY & Hardware Stores
There is no hardware store really near by. The closest one is a TOOM DIY-market, about 6 km away from the venue.
Address:Mainzer Landstraße 681, 65933 Frankfurt-Griesheim
Opening hours: MON-SAT 08:00-20:00
Consumables & beverages
There is no shopping opportunity nearby. If you need to purchase larger quantities I suggest that you drive by car to the huge METRO Food and Non-food wholesale market. They offer an extreme large variety of goods, but you need to prove that you are a business to receive daily entrance permission. They do not sell to normal end-consumers.

Opening hours: MON – FRI 07:00 – 22:00, SAT 07:00 – 20:00
There are hundreds of hotels in and around Frankfurt, but only a few within shorter walking distance to the fair ground.

There are two more comfortable 4* hotels outside of the southern venue edge, but their room rates are a bit higher. As long as you make your booking well in advance you can also find here some interesting offers for set up and dismantling periods.
During the shows all Frankfurt hotels will increase their room rates by at least 100%.
