Stand Equipment:
With the booked exhibition space you only booked the naked space. All services as e.g. power supply, carpet, walls, rental furniture, stand cleaning can be ordered via the ServiFira online shop. In case you do not set-up your own individual stand we recommend booking a shell scheme booth.


Construction Rules: The ERS specific rules and regulations, especially the construction rules may vary and are in most cases more restrictive than the rules of the venue. Please take this into account when planning your stand and activities! More information under “Guidelines, Regulations, Construction Rules, Stand Approvals”.

Rigging Projects: Please make sure to check the availability of suspension points and the feasibility of your planned rigging project at a very early stage with the local supplier in order to avoid surprises in case your specific requirements should not be possible. Neither Interplan nor the venue can guarantee the feasibility of your project. Contact:

Attention! If you plan a complex project with high weights, many motors and drops we strongly recommend to appoint a structural engineer to make sure your calculations are correct.


Exhibitors / Constructors which will have their own switchboard must provide a document that certifies that this switchboard has been approved by an authorized Catalan electrician. The German TÜV or other authorities are not accepted. Please note that this approval has to be repeated every single time the switchboard comes into use in Catalunya. ServiFira does not offer this certification service! Experience of previous congresses in Barcelona has shown that it is very difficult and time-consuming to order the switchboard on-site in case the own switchboard should not be accepted. The power on the stand will only be switched on once the mentioned certificate has been shown to the hall master.

We therefore strongly recommend ordering the switchboards from the ServiFIRA.

Due to the continuing issues of unreliable WI-FI networks within the exhibition area at medical congresses, the ERS and FIRA Barcelona are taking the same approach as in previous years. Past experience has shown that, when multiple wireless networks are sharing the same airspace, all wireless users are susceptible to wireless (RF) interference. This can lead to loss of connectivity, slow network traffic and poor performance. In such a dynamic environment where events build up, open, close and break down in a matter of days, interference from wireless networks is a particularly acute issue.

Due to radio technology limitations, ERS and FIRA Barcelona have decided to focus on rules and communication to improve Wi-Fi global availability in the exhibition area and Industry Session rooms. You will find the WI-FI Policy here.

You may as of now order WI-FI directly via FIRA Barcelona. You will find here our WI-FI Policy.
Please read it carefully, and return a signed copy by email to FIRA BARCELONA (see below) – This is mandatory even if you do not require Wi-Fi onsite. Please make sure you return this signed form before 20th August 2022.

This year again, the free delegate WI-FI will be available in the entire congress center, including the exhibition. To ensure that the public WI-FI will not be interfered during Industry Sessions and the exhibition opening hours, the exhibitors and the organizer of an Industry Session must use the offer of the IT department from FIRA Barcelona.
