FAQ STAGE|SET|SCENERY 2021 due to the impact of Covid-19 (as of 20 August 2020)

To make good decisions for your company, your employees and yourself, you need information. We are very aware of this. Therefore we have compiled this FAQ. If you have any more questions, then please email us at We will continue to update this section down below in an effort to resolve all your queries concerning your participation at Stage|Set|Scenery.

Please also visit the Messe Berlin website for further information on this topic.

If we as the organizer cannot hold Stage|Set|Scenery for reasons outside our own control, we will not charge our exhibitors for their stand rental. Your stand rental payment would then be returned to you or at your request brought forward to the next edition. Please refer to our General Terms of Business for Trade Fairs and Exhibitions organized by Messe Berlin GmbH. General Terms of Business

Once you sign your stand placement proposal, our cancellation policy comes into force. From that moment on, if you want to cancel your participation, you must notify us as soon as you make the decision not to attend. This gives us the opportunity to look for another company for your space. If we find another exhibitor for your space, then as organizers we will only invoice you 25 percent of the total amount due to compensate us for the additional costs. If we do not find another exhibitor for the space, then you will be liable to pay your rental fees in full amount.

We are confident that Stage|Set|Scenery 2021 will take place. We are in constant contact with the relevant authorities and pass this information on to our exhibitors and trade visitors in a timely manner. In cooperation with them, we do our very best to assess the situation realistically and, if necessary, communicate the cancellation well in advance so that additional costs can be avoided.

If the cancellation takes place due to official travel restrictions in the country of origin or in Germany and the travel restrictions make the entry impossible or unreasonable for the exhibitor, the exhibitor will not be charged or the stand rental fee will be refunded. Unacceptability shall be assumed if the return to the country of origin would be impossible or would require a quarantine of more than 7 days after return or if the entry to Germany would require a quarantine of more than 7 days. Proof of travel restrictions in the country of origin must be provided to Messe Berlin by means of suitable documentation.

Messe Berlin GmbH has developed a safety and hygiene concept (PDF, 396.4 kB) for all trade fairs and events that will take place on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds in the future. You can rest assured that the health and safety of our visitors, customers and employees is our top priority. At the same time, there is a great need in the industry for a physical event for real exchange among each other. Especially in times of the anonymous World Wide Web, live events create a human emotional connection, which makes events like Stage|Set|Scenery so valuable.

We can already guarantee the following hygiene measures:

  • Compliance with strict and increased cleaning cycles for communal facilities and contact areas.
  • All sanitary facilities are increasingly subjected to surface disinfection, and soap dispensers are also constantly refilled and disinfected.
  • The operational control of the modern ventilation systems ensures that the halls are always well ventilated.
  • Permanent, active information before and during the trade fair about the necessary infection protection measures to be observed by everyone.
  • High density of hand washing and hand disinfection facilities at entrances, information stands and catering points
  • Observance of the recognised distance rules and appeal to personal responsibility
  • Prioritisation of a "no handshake policy

In addition to the responsibilities undertaken by Messe Berlin every participant in an event takes personal responsibility for observing the safety and hygiene measures. For information purposes, these measures together with additional general rules of conduct are to be communicated online ahead of an event as well as on information signs and by announcements made in the halls. The company’s domiciliary rights by which all participants must abide ensure that these rules are implemented safely.
