General Terms and Conditions for Exhibitor Services


Exhibitors, or persons duly authorized by exhibitors, are able to procure certain services offered in connection with the participation in exhibitions and events by companies affiliated with Messe Frankfurt GmbH according to Article 15 ff. German Stock Corporation Act (hereinafter referred to as “Messe Frankfurt”). Following General Terms and Conditions apply for all aforementioned exhibitor services and in addition to the Supply Conditions of the respective service.

1.) Application of the Supply Conditions set by Messe Frankfurt
Both contracting parties recognize the Supply Conditions set by Messe Frankfurt for the respective service as applicable and binding. General terms and conditions or contractual terms of the ordering party do not apply, even if Messe Frankfurt did not object to their applicability.

2.) Liability
Unless otherwise stipulated in the Supply Conditions for the respective service, the following shall apply:
Messe Frankfurt is liable in case of intent or gross negligence. Messe Frankfurt is liable for damages caused by simple negligence insofar as negligence pertains to the violation of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations). Compensation claims shall be limited to damages which, at the time of the contract conclusion, are typical and foreseeable. Messe Frankfurt shall not be liable in this context for compensation of indirect damages/consequential damages, specifically not for lost profits. Damages arising from the violation of life, body, or health are excluded from the above exclusions of liability.

3.) Severability clause, Application of German Law, Place of Jurisdiction
If individual conditions of these General Terms and Conditions for Exhibitor Services become ineffective, the validity of the remaining conditions is not thereby affected. In place of the ineffective conditions, the contractual parties are obligated to agree upon other effective conditions that most closely correspond to the economic purpose of the ineffective conditions.

The Laws of the Federal Republic of Germany apply. Place of Jurisdiction is Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
