Terms and conditions of participation

Rules of participation in the New Product Showcase at ISM 2019.

Only exhibitors at ISM 2019 are entitled to participate in the New Product Showcase. Exclusively products corresponding to the ISM 2019 product directory, created after ISM 2018 and representing genuine new developments can be presented. 

The exhibitor guarantees that the registered products are its own new developments and that the presentation of the products does not violate any intellectual property rights or other rights of third parties. In the event that Koelnmesse GmbH is subject to claims for damages by third parties on the ground that their rights are violated by the exhibitor or by a product presented by the exhibitor, the exhibitor hereby agrees to indemnify Koelnmesse GmbH from all such claims. 

Participation requests shall be considered according to availability after the date of receipt of the application for the New Product Showcase at Koelnmesse GmbH; the exhibitor shall be informed of nonacceptance in writing. Please note that the number of display windows is limited. Koelnmesse GmbH reserves the right to limit the number of products per exhibitor and to make inclusion in the New Product Showcase dependent on additional product information and proof of innovation. The design of the New Product Showcase area and the placement of products are the responsibility of Koelnmesse GmbH. Koelnmesse GmbH is not liable for loss of or damage to products. The ISM 2019 terms and conditions apply. I hereby agree to the release of the product descriptions on the ISM web site starting January 27th, 2019. In addition, your products can be entered in the new product database, free of charge. 

In this case we kindly ask you to confirm this under the point “Press service: Koelnmesse new product database” on the second page of the fax reply. 

The participant is responsible for uploading informational materials about their products. Participants upload the product information in German and English and image online via a dedicated ISM Web portal. This data will be used to generate a web site and a product information sheet (DIN A5 portrait format, as well as a corresponding page in the online product catalogue). A QR code will be generated for the product information sheet that will allow the participant to be contacted directly. Due to the limited space, advertising displays, banners and stands are not permitted.

Registered products or dummy products must be sent to the following address by January 11th, 2019, at the sender’s cost: Schenker Deutschland AG, Pfälzischer Ring 105 50679 Köln Messe Germany - Reference: c/o ISM 2019 New Product Showcase KoelnMesse /Mrs. Rau.  

If you want the products back, you must pick them up from the exhibition area on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Official supervision ends at 8:00 p.m. Not collected products will be returned to sender, fee based, on request otherwise disposed at the expense of Koelnmesse.
