Product and Brand Protection

We’re committed to protecting products and brands

Our comprehensive measures are designed to protect as best as possible your intellectual property rights as an exhibitor.

As a global trade fair company, we explicitly fight against product and brand piracy. For your protection, we have implemented the following measures:

  • An anti-plagiarism clause in the participation requirements for each trade fair.
  • A general photography ban.
  • An exhibition stand of the German Customs and Patent and Trademark Offices providing free-of-charge information and advice to exhibitors.

Upon our initiative, Munich’s District Court reserves court sessions for events particularly prone to product and brand piracy. This allows you to accelerate the legal proceedings if you are affected. Please clearly mark on your form that it is related to the trade fair.
