When we register for the fair, what does that include?

When you submit your application, it only concerns stand space at bauma CHINA. It automatically includes the mandatory entry in the exhibitor directory (online directory), a basic entry in the show catalog as well a certain number of exhibitor passes, depending on the size of your stand. You will be invoiced separately for any additional charges incurred (e.g. stand construction, technical services, advertising materials). All invoices should be paid immediately upon receipt.

When and how will I be invoiced?

Shortly after you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation of your application together with a down-payment invoice by mail. The down-payment invoice amounts to 30 percent of the participation fee and must be paid upon receipt. You will receive a separate admission invoice for the balance, which must be paid immediately after you have received your stand proposal. All invoiced amounts on all MM Shanghai invoices that are connected to the event must be paid without deductions and free of all charges by credit transfer to the account specified on the invoices, mentioning the exhibitor’s company name and invoice number.

Can co-exhibitors exhibit at my stand? If so, how can I register them?

Exhibitors are free to have co-exhibitors at their stands. The main exhibiting company (leaser of space from the organizer) must fill out and sign the co-exhibitor application form here. Co-exhibitors are also subject to approval to exhibit. The application fee is 220 euros for each co-exhibitor admitted. The main exhibitor will be charged this fee. Additionally represented companies are not allowed at the stand.
