The vehicle must have left the fairground until latest 9:00 am respectively 9:30 am.
In case you don’t have any of the above explained labels for your vehicle, it is unfortunately impossible to access the fairground during the days of the show. You have the following options:
- You get your goods delivered by a parcel service (depending on kind/size).
Please give them the following delivery address: Messegelände Bad Kissingen (Fairground Bad Kissingen) last street name for navigation systems: Ysenburgstrasse (then follow the signs pro-log), your stand number XX, 97688 Bad Kissingen. In addition, it is mandatory to give a phone number and contact person on site to them.
Parcel services can drive up to the entrance of the fairground (but not inside!). The goods must be picked up at the entrance by the exhibitor immediate and brought to the stand by themselves. At the fair organization tent a limited number of dollies and handcarts are available against deposit. We don’t accept deliveries and they can´t be stored with us either.
- If you, for example, have goods inside a trailer at the trailer parking area you can use our transport shuttle. At the entrance of the fair a van with driver is available (waiting times might arise). Each ride to the exhibitor- or trailer-parking area is charged with 30,00 € including VAT. The van is available at the following times:
Transport from exhibitor- or trailer-parking area to your stand:

Sunday 9:30 am – 5:00 pm
- Taxis can drive to the entrance at any time. In case you need goods stored at your accommodation you can call a taxi. The taxi numbers are pinned up at the fair organization tent at the exit.
Usually you can find your booth number on the invoice. Besides, as soon as the exhibitor directory is published online (section VISITORS, rubric EXHIBITOR DIRECTORY / SITE MAP) you can find your stand number there.
If you find valuables or personal items at the fairground, please drop them off at the fair organization tent at the exit.
If you notice any theft, please directly contact the local police station. They are located at Kasernenstrasse 6, 97688 Bad Kissingen – close to the parking area for day visitors. They can be reached by phone at +49 97 71490.
Many visitors take their shopping in the shuttle bus with them. Even coolers are usually taking along like that. In case the bought item is bigger (a roof tent for example) your customer can benefit of our transport shuttle. Bring the items to the fair organization tent at the exit (please note, goods can´t be stored there!). Against a fee of 35,00 € incl. VAT (paid in cash) your customer can book the transport shuttle to the parking area for day visitors or the CAMP-AREA. At busy times, short waiting times might arise.
Even if among exhibitors the rumor is going around that visitors can drive up to the fairground before opening or after closing time of the fair to pick up bulky items, we must tell you that this information is absolutely wrong! Visitors in general are not allowed to drive up to the fairground at any time!
If you sold for example a roof tent including installation you must get to the customer’s car at the parking area for day visitors or the CAMP-AREA to do so. This cannot be done in or in front of the show area. Please note, only vehicles holding the sticker access permit for show cars are allowed to leave and most important get back into the fairground during the specified times. In case you plan on offering such a service for your customers please discuss your options with the staff of the fair organization beforehand.
During the days of the show the following rules apply:
If you are using a vehicle on your stand (show car) for overnight stay or you have booked a place at the exhibitor camp, you are allowed to stay the night on the fairground. In case you want to leave in the evening to have dinner or to visit the thermal bath KissSalis, then you can do so by, for example, calling a taxi. Entrance and departure during the days of the show is only possible with the following vehicle labels at the mentioned times.
If you have the label access permit for show cars (Zufahrtserlaubnis) on your vehicle you can enter and depart the fairground during the specified times. In case you come back after 10 pm, the security guards cannot let you drive back into the fairground – by foot of course you can enter. They will assign a parking area for you for the night. The vehicle must be moved from there until latest 8:30 am the next morning.
If you have the label exhibitor parking permit (Aussteller-Parkausweis) on your vehicle you can take the exhibitor shuttle bus in the evening from the fair exit to the exhibitor parking area at the following times: Thursday-Saturday 6 pm – 8 pm, Sunday 5 pm – 8 pm. In addition, a minibus is driving again (Thursday-Saturday) at 9 pm, 10 pm and 11 pm from the exhibitor parking area back to the fairground.
In case you don’t have one of the above-named labels on your vehicle, you can leave the fairground after fair closing time, but you CAN´T drive back in! In case you need to get back to the fairground anyway you have to organize a taxi on your own (Taxis are allowed to drive up to the fairground at any time). The taxi numbers are pinned up at the fair organization tent at the exit.
Please note, all passengers / people must wear the access bracelet at all times to get back into the fairground. The security guard can only grant access to people wearing an access bracelet (around the wrist!). Therefore, please make sure never to leave the fairground without wearing it!
Visitors must leave the show area at closing time. The last busses back to the CAMP-AREA or the parking area for day visitors leave about 20 – 30 minutes after closing time. But even visitors that don’t mind the foot march to town are not allowed to stay longer.
After closing time only exhibitors or staff wearing an access bracelet, employees of the organizer as well as authorized booth guards are allowed on site.
If we meet visitors after closing time on site, we will friendly escort them to the exit. In case of resistant behavior, we will have to take our right to exercise the domiciliary rights.
To avoid this unpleasant situation for everyone: Please make your customers aware that they have to leave the fairground at the end of the opening hours. You could for example continue the conversation at a nice restaurant in Bad Kissingen. The fairground however is off-limits for all guests/visitors out of opening hours!
BUT – we are dog owners ourselves and by experience we have to highly recommend not to bring your four-legged friend along! The least dogs will enjoy the crowd of people. Especially at high temperatures you are not doing them a favor.
If unavoidable, please note the following:
- On the fairground always walk your dog on a short leash (no flexible leash)
- Visitors and other exhibitors must not be harassed
- If needed, dogs must wear a muzzle
- Excrements must be cleaned up by the owner – poop bags are available at the entrance, coffee bar and the C-Area
- Make sure to bring along enough drinking water and to purchase a shady place for rest
During the opening-hours of the fair, the entrance with a bike is not allowed. This rule applies for visitors as well as for exhibitiors. It’s generally not allowed to move bicycles on the fairground during the opening-hours.
