  • The invoice for your participation at IKF will be sent to you electronically six weeks before the event and is due immediately.
  • For joint stands, all services related to the IKF presentation will be charged to the principal exhibitor. The principal exhibitor is the determining factor for taxation.
  • Value-added tax: Participants from Germany are subject to VAT without exception. Foreign exhibitors with their own stand may be exempt from this 19 % VAT on submission of the necessary supporting documents.

Participation options


  • Relax after a busy day at the trade fair in your lodgings or discover some of Freiburg's most beautiful spots. We have put together the most important information and addresses for you in the section Directions.

Performances on the stand

  • There are no performances and presentations in the exhibitor hall allowed that can be compared to a live performance. The use of amplifiers or microphones is prohibited. Exhibitors are happy to show the audience impressions or extracts from their programs by using laptops.
  • If artists or groups want to present themselves to the audience, this is only possible by performing live on one of the five stages after they have applied and have been selected. You can find more information on this in the artists section.
