Assembly area >>

The following information applies to all exhibitors who have applied to the DLG exhibition management for early set-up (November 3, 2023 and earlier):

Please note the public holidays with restrictions for trucks > 7.5 tons on Tuesday (October 31, 2023) in Lower Saxony and on Wednesday (November 1, 2023) in North Rhine-Westphalia, from midnight to 10 p.m.

If you plan to drive to the exhibition grounds with a truck > 7.5 tons during these periods, you must apply for an exemption from the Sunday driving ban from the responsible road traffic authority.

During the set-up (November 4 – 11, 2023) as well as the event period (November 12 – 18, 2023) the "important notice on vehicle admission" apply. Please note that the regulations can be adjusted depending on the traffic situation in and around the exhibition grounds.

We kindly ask you to be aware of the following changes during the dismantling period and plan accordingly.

Reorganization of the entrance to the exhibition center after the event

On Saturday (November 18, 2023) it is expected that the exhibition grounds will be opened from 9 p.m. to midnight, but only for vehicles up to 7.5 tons. After that, no access to the exhibition grounds will be granted until Sunday (November 19, 2023) at 6:00 a.m. Attention: Trucks > 7.5 tons are not allowed to drive in on Saturday (November 18, 2023).

On Sunday (November 19, 2023) it will be possible to drive onto the exhibition grounds again from 6 a.m. Trucks > 7.5 tons drive through the truck checkpoint to the exhibition grounds (Parking area 45). For vehicles < 3.5 tons, the interim regulation applies (similar to the set-up period), also on Monday (November 20, 2023) from 7 a.m. to around 6 p.m.

In coordination with the road traffic authorities, the Sunday driving ban will be canceled on Sunday (November 19, 2023) for the route from the truck checkpoint to / from the exhibition grounds. If you plan to continue your journey on Sunday, you must apply for a special permit from the responsible authority.

FAQS on the cancellation of AGRITECHNICA 2022

AGRITECHNICA 2022 is being cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This is regulated in section 10.1.1. a) of the GTCs.

DLG Service GmbH shall be entitled to cancel the exhibition [in the event that] a) a sovereign measure (…) exists or the execution of the event is urgently advised against, regardless of whether such sovereign measure is addressed directly to DLG Service GmbH or to the general public. This also includes all sovereign measures in connection with the corona virus SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19.

The legal ramification in 10.2.1. of the GTCs is derived from this:

In the event of a complete cancellation prior to the start of the event, the Exhibitor shall remain liable for payment of a contribution to cover the costs incurred by DLG Service GmbH to fulfil the contract and to prepare and stage the event or to provide services already ordered by the Exhibitor until the day of cancellation by DLG Service GmbH (so called "advance costs"). These advance costs shall amount to at least 25 % of the Exhibitor's fee (…)

In consultation with the exhibitor advisory board, DLG will only invoice the exhibitor for 15% of the up-front costs instead of the 25%. The costs incurred by the exhibitors will therefore also be taken into consideration in this way.

These costs cannot be offset against the next event.

The registration fee (EUR 480) and booked media packages (EUR 690 and upgrades) will not be reimbursed.

Exhibitors received a cancellation invoice for their stand rent, the AUMA contribution and the advance payment for ancillary costs. The repayments were made in the first quarter of 2022.

If you have waived a reversal of the credit (85% of the stand rental invoice from AGRITECHNICA 2022), this will be credited to you at AGRITECHNICA 2023.
