FAIRNET in action at the International Youth Day
Exhibitors from many different countries came together with the participants to present and offer their own programme items during the IYD. Right from the planning stage to implementation, FAIRNET was a reliable and competent partner. It coordinated and developed the stands according to individual requirements and carried out assembly and dismantling. Exhibitors and participants alike are members of the New Apostolic Church, which was represented by the District Church of Southern Germany, the Gebotsgarten (commandment garden) as well as the departments for pastoral counselling and grief counselling.
On the more than 25,200 square metres of exhibition Hall 6, a total of 28 exhibition stands with areas between 25 and 200 square metres and 18 individual presentations on 1,375 square metres were created. Stands were also built on the three levels of Hall 7, with a total area of around 16,900 square metres, and at the North Entrance. All the material was delivered with a total of eight 40-tonne articulated lorries. This included some 1,900 metres of walls, around 1,500 pieces of furniture and 14,000 square metres of flooring.
The particular challenge: Many of the exhibitors only had rough sketches or an idea of how to plan their stand in advance. The individual requirements and demands were as extensive as they were varied. For the FAIRNET team, it was therefore always a matter of comparing these ideas with the feasibility and guidelines of Messe Düsseldorf and finding compromises that worked for everyone. Close and constructive cooperation of all participants on-site contributed significantly to the impressive result. FAIRNET was on site with six project managers from Berlin and Leipzig.
