SXS COLOGNE '24
Welcome BEGINNER !
Dear exhibitors, we carefully set up this portal to provide you with all the important information and deadlines for STICKS & STONES. The portal is intended to be the first point of contact for all your questions and to ensure a smooth and carefree organization of the fair.
Disclaimer: Please note that the deadlines we communicate here are binding. If these deadlines are not met, we cannot guarantee that the services in your package will be fully provided. For example, if we receive your exhibitor profile too late, this will delay publication on our website. We cannot refund for missed deadlines.
Please note: There is a power connection at your booth. However, this will probably not be ready until the evening of the set-up day.
All materials must be taken away. Storage in the location for a later pickup is not possible.
IMPORTANT: We would like to inform you that dismantling before the end of the official fair time is not allowed due to security and insurance reasons.

As soon as you arrive in the hall on the set-up day, you will come across our registration counter. There you will receive all exhibitor passes, catering wristbands and an info sheet to hand out to your colleagues.
The visitors have the possibility to deposit their CV and career data digitally when buying their ticket. 2 - 3 weeks before the fair you will get access to the database. You can filter the data according to the following criteria: Educational qualification, industry, company sector, location, work location model, work time model, form of employment, company size, language. This gives exhibitors the opportunity to invite specific visitors to their stand and draw attention to their company and its vacancies.
The database can be used to invite suitable candidates to your booth by sending them a short e-mail and drawing their attention to your company and the match. If there is no response, we recommend sending a follow-up mail 2 - 3 days before the fair.
Do you have any unanswered questions that could potentially be relevant for other exhibitors? Are you missing some central organizational information? Post your question here so that we can include it and the corresponding answer in the FAQ in the partner portal.
