Sound equipment and Music
In general, the use of sound equipment/music in booths is permitted as long as the noise level does not disrupt the activities of neighboring exhibitors.
Speakers and other sound devices should be positioned to direct sound inward (to be contained within the booth) rather than outward (toward aisles and other exhibitor booths).
It is difficult to establish decibel level restrictions. If an exhibitor or attendee is standing within ~3 meters of an exhibitor’s booth and cannot carry on a normal voice-level conversation, the noise source is too loud.
Further guidelines:

  • Live music is not allowed.
  • The organizers reserve the right to require the exhibitor to discontinue any activity, noise, or music that is too loud
  • The organizers reserve the right to require the exhibitor to discontinue any activity, noise, or music that is deemed objectionable.
  • Exhibitors are reminded that third party copyrights should not be infringed. The organizers have no copyright responsibility in respect of any exhibiting company.
    Proper dispensation must be obtained and any royalties due, paid prior to the use of materials. Should any copyright dispute arise, the organizers will not be liable for any resulting loss or damages, sustained by any exhibitor or third party.


  • Please do not leave any bags, boxes, suitcases or any type of product unattended at any time, whether inside or outside the exhibition area. The organizers and the CCIB cannot accept liability for loss of or damage to private property or goods.
  • Neither the CCIB nor the organizers can accept responsibility for the security of the booths and their contents. The CCIB as well as the organizers are not liable for any possible loss, theft and/or damage occurred during the rental period of any goods. Exhibitors are fully responsible for the security of their booth and equipment.
  • Please consider hiring extra security for your booth if needed. This can be done via the CCIB service order form.

Bikes, skates, electric scooter and any personal transport by wheels are not permitted inside the building.

Promotional Activities

  • All demonstrations or instructional activities must be confined to the limits of the Exhibition booth.
  • Advertising material and signs may not be distributed or displayed outside the exhibitor’s booths.
  • Advertising activities must not cause obstructions or disturbances in the gangways or at neighboring booths.
  • The Exhibition Manager reserves the right to require the exhibitor to discontinue any activity, noise, or music that is deemed objectionable.

Waste Removal

  • Exhibitors are responsible for the removal of all refuse/waste from the exhibition area. The used space must be returned completely clear of all items and restored to it’s original state.
  • In case that exhibitors wish to leave any kind of waste material during set-up/dismantling, they should order a waste container in advance.
  • Any discarded waste, including promotional material, left behind will be removed by the CCIB and/or the organizers at the expense of the exhibitor concerned.
