Approval conditions for joint pavilions (FKM)

A joint pavilion is a stand at a trade fair at which various joint pavilion exhibitors present their products and information together. It is organized by a joint pavilion organizer.

A joint pavilion organizer is an institution (company, individual, or organization) that has been provided with an exhibitor stand space by the trade fair organizer, and which can contractually agree with exhibitors on how this exhibitor stand space is used without presenting or distributing products, services and/or rights there itself.

A joint pavilion exhibitor is an exhibitor who, with the consent of the trade fair organizer, presents or distributes products, services and/or rights with personnel at the pavilion of the joint pavilion organizer.
