Please mention this on your registration form, so that GrootGroenPlus will not place walls in your booth. You need to present your stand design including measurements via firstname.lastname@example.org for approval. This must be done before 15 August.
How high is a wall in a booth?
We have selected aluminium profiles with cherry wood panelling of 2.5m high, and a dark green contrasting wall of 3m high, with the GrootGroenPlus logo on it. The panels cannot be moved or painted and cannot be used to nail or screw things on. If walls get damaged, you will be charged for these. The organisation can provide you with special s-hooks for free. If you do not want any walls, please let us know. If the walls need to be removed after the layout has been created, you will be charged with the extra costs.

According to the supplier, the maximum floor load is 450 kg per square meter. Damages caused by overloading will be charged to the person who is responsible for overloading.
Do the booths come with carpets?
By default, every booth is decorated with anthracite carpet tiles. After the trade fair, the carpet must be clean. Any repairs or cleaning costs will be charged to the participant. If you do not want any carpet, please let us know. If the carpet needs to be removed after the layout has been created, you will be charged with the extra costs.
How can I find out the shape, place and number of my booth?
Prior to the trade fair, you will receive an overview drawing of the trade fair, including a detailed drawing of the booth you rented, and the provisional stand number.
What are the construction, decoration, and deconstruction times?
Prior to the trade fair, you will receive a letter regarding the construction, which mentions the times scheduled for you to construct and deconstruct. Upon arrival at the site, you can show this letter to our staff and go to the location intended for loading/unloading. You can only come here if you have this letter, and you will only have one hour to unload. You will have 4 days to construct your stand, but outside of the period mentioned in the letter, your vehicle is not allowed on the terrain. Deconstruction does not start prior to Saturday. Any companies that have urgent reasons to deconstruct on Friday evening after 20:00 must get permission from the organisation in advance.

How can my colleagues and I get entrance tickets and parking permits?
Parking tickets, participants badges including cord (max. 2 per stand), information regarding the deconstruction, and the emergency plan can be requested from the organisation during the construction period. As soon as you have finished constructing your stand, please notify the organisation.

Is it possible to advertise on the LED-screen?
This year, participants can also advertise via the LED-screen. The central square will feature a large video wall, which allows visitors to follow everything that is going on. It will also show short videos on interesting subjects. Between those videos and live video, we offer you room to advertise. The LED presentation is divided into moving images and cable news, which is why we can offer you two options: 1) Moving image or image presentation on your company or product, 20 seconds. for € 350,-. 2) Moving image or image presentation on your company or product, 30 seconds. for € 475,-. All rates are excluding VAT. Your video message will be displayed during three days, at least 7 times a day.
Is it possible to advertise on walls?
During trade fair GrootGroenPlus, it is important to appeal to your target group in the right way., given the fact that this is the place to be for growers, traders, manufacturers, suppliers, trade visitors and trade press! This year, we want to present you with another opportunity to attract even more attention to your business, service, and product, by using advertising walls. We can offer you both a basic and a deluxe version. These advertising walls will be placed alongside a number of routes, for examples in walk-through areas, in front of restroom trailers, and in connecting halls. You can find more information in the participant environment of the website. You can get the most out of the advertising walls if they are used by participants; in that case, visitors can make an appointment or request more information at the stand of the participant. However, GrootGroenPlus also offers non-participants the opportunity to rent a deluxe advertising wall. The costs for this add up to €825 excluding vat, including placement. If, after you have placed your order, you decide to participate after all, we will of course adjust the paid amount to the rate for participants.
Would you prefer renting a ready-made stand?
This year, we offer 3 packages for stands, which include all decoration. More information on these 3 packages can be found in the participant environment or participation form.
