Forwarding of Promotional Material

Your materials for ICEF Berlin may arrive in Berlin from Tuesday, October 31, 2023 onwards (but not before) allowing you sufficient time to check if your packages have been delivered correctly. Please contact a courier of your choice. It is very important that you include a proforma invoice. Inspections of deliveries with incomplete documents can take up to four weeks.

Package Preparation
When calculating the amount of promotional materials to send to Berlin please bear in mind that you will have a maximum of 38 pre-scheduled meetings. Shipping Label is available here.

Sustainable Alternatives
As we recommend to reduce the use of paper, you can also upload up to five documents (max size of 5 MB each), three videos (YouTube, Dailymotion and Vimeo links are supported) and up to eight photos (max size of 5 MB each) into your Marcom eSchedule PRO profile and make them available to agents prior to, during and for four weeks after the event.

In addition, if you’d like to make an impression at your dedicated table here are some suggestions to help you stand out:

  • Branded table cloth
  • Reusable table top roller banner
  • QR code to your website/brochures/offers
  • Sustainable giveaways for your potential partners
  • No need for business cards – delegates can scan your v-card on the reverse side of your badge
  • Laptops – power is provided at each table, take your partners through your presentations and videos

Please also consider using local suppliers to cut down international shipping.

Please note that only organisations with an exhibition booth may bring a pull up banner. We are unable to facilitate any form of pull up banner in the meeting hall space. All branding must be kept to table top items only.

Please be aware that although Wi-Fi will be provided, we recommend downloading your event materials, presentations and videos directly to your device for your meetings. This helps reduce GHG emissions and ensures the network traffic is not overloaded.
