Deliveries can not be processed on all build-up days. The the loading zone space inside the show area is very limited, so vehicles like large trucks or trailers can´t be managed permanently. Take the other exhibitors into your consideration and coordinate big deliveries with us in time! Unfortunately, we can´t allow deliveries with large trucks on build-up Wednesday.
All vehicle transporters and vehicles delivered on a trailer, must be unloaded in front of the show area (loading zone). These vehicles must be driven inside the show area. There is no room inside the fairground to unload. The loading process must be reduced to a minimum of time because following trailers or transporters might cause a traffic jam. Vehicle transporters, trailers and unloaded vehicles must be moved out of the loading zone immediately. Vehicle transporters must leave the nature protection area as soon as the unloading is doen. Trailers can be parked on the trailer parking area (follow the signs) for free. This area must be cleared until latest 12 a.m. on Monday after the last show day.
Vehicle transporters can only deliver on build-up Monday and Tuesday!
In case that you would like to have woodchips, sand, gravel or similar on your stand, please note that they have to be removed completely from your stand when the fair is over. If the stand is not cleaned up, the removal will be commissioned at the expense of the exhibitor. We request to place your order (incl. removal and disposal) with Gartenbau Stahl +49 (0)971699360 / email@example.com in time.
If you delegate another company for the delivery, please note, that we have to approve the delivery in advance.
Such deliveries are NOT possible on build-up Wednesday!
If your stand is in the open-air area and you would like to build up a tent on your stand (beside small pagodas/tents you build up on your own) we gladly arrange the contact to cooperating companies. These companies will agree with us on the build up possibilities. If you commission a company by yourself, the possibilities for build up must be discussed with us beforehand! Bigger tents usually can´t be set up during the exhibitor build-up days. In this case, separate agreements might have to be found. Without prior consultation it isn’t possible to build up tents!
Depending on size and location of the booked stand setting up tents cannot be permitted during build-up days!
Other large deliveries, for example goods delivered by trucks or in shipping containers can only be allowed on build-up Monday or Tuesday.

In case that you don’t have any of the above mentioned labels for your vehicle, it is unfortunately impossible to access the fairground during the days of the show. You have the following options:

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 immediately 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 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).

Usually you can find your booth number on the invoice. As soon as the exhibitor directory is published online (section VISITORS, rubric EXHIBITOR DIRECTORY / SITE MAP) you can also find your stand number there.
In case that you have lost valuables or personal items, please come to the fair organization tent at the exit, which is also our lost-property office. If the lost item hasn’t be found already, our staff will take your contact details to get in touch with you if somebody will find the lost object later on.
If you find valuables or personal items at the fairground, please bring them to the fair organization tent at the exit.
If you notice any theft, please contact directly 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.
ABENTEUER & ALLRAD is also a sales fair. To make the decision for your customers easier whether to buy something big or not we provide (during fair opening hours) a chargeable transport shuttle.
Many visitors take their shopping in the shuttle bus with them. Even coolers are usually taken along like that. In case that 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 to the CAMP-AREA. At busy times, short waiting times might arise.
Even if among the 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 build-up days, you can enter and leave the fairgroung with any of the vehicle labels between 8 am and 8 pm.
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 calling a taxi, for example. 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!
Off course we understand that it is a pity, when you are involved in an interesting customer talk right at the fair closing time. So not only a few exhibitors wish to continue the conversation in a comfortable atmosphere on site in the evening. Unfortunately, this is not allowed!
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 walk 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 situations 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!
Yes, you can bring your dog to the expo (except fighting dogs, which are listed in Bavaria ).
BUT – we are dog owners ourselves and by experience we have to disadvise against bringing your dog to the expo! The most dogs won’t enjoy to ride on a crowded bus (at peaktimes) or to walk between countless visitors on the fairground. Besides, dogs are usually not allowed inside exhibits. Especially at high temperatures, you won’t do them a favor by bringing them to the expo.
If it is unavoidable, please note the following, as well as the house and compound rules:
- On the fairground always walk your dog on a short leash (no flexible leash)
- Exhibitors and visitors must not be disturbed
- If it’s necessary, dogs must wear a muzzle
- Excrements must be cleaned up by the owner – excrement bags are available at the entrance, coffee bar and in the C-area
- Make sure to bring enough drinking water with you and to give your dog the possibility to rest at a shad
Out of the opening-hours of the fair, you can take your bike with you. Bikes don’t need a vehicle label (other than scooters/motorcycles/quads). On your return only the authorization of the driver (exhibitor bracelet) will be checked.
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.
Yes, annually between 1st March and 31st October the Germany-wide smoking, barbecuing and bonfire ban is valid. This concerns the access roads to the fairground, the whole area around the fairground, the fairground itself and the CAMP-AREA.
Please ignore letters like this!
The sender of these letters is NOT ABENTEUER & ALLRAD (organizer: pro-log GmbH) but several companies based in not European countries.
We as the organizer only use the data out of page 1 of the registration form or for sub-exhibitor´s page 6 of the registration form. Each exhibitor is responsible for the accuracy of the data submitted. We do not recheck the given information.

You want to register for ABENTEUER & ALLRAD? Great!
Please have a look at the section EXHIBITORS (rubric APPLICATION FORM) there you will find when and how to request the registration forms.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to register or to apply with a catering stand.
We want to be able to offer our visitors as much variety of off-road and outdoor products as possible, so please understand, that we can´t accept every application. We make the decision about admission depending on the already registered companies/product areas. We can only accept a very small number of companies that don’t belong to the off-road or outdoor range.
