The exhibition is held on the lower floors which are normally used as car park. Therefore there is no central heating. Th DDW organisation will take measures to make the climate on the floors as optimal as possible. Given the circumstances, you have to take into account low temperatures.


We supply a single floor-located power distribution point for each exhibition. Use of energy-efficient lighting and equipment is mandatory, as well as fire-safe materials. A sprinkler system is operational.

In connection with the building’s limited power facilities, an extra group (3600W, 230V, 16A) is possible in consultation. The related costs are € 385 excl. VAT. Three- phase power is available upon request and at extra cost.
