Press compartments at Press Center East

During IFAT 2020, the Press Center East is the first place that journalists go to look for relevant information for their coverage of the fair. It also has press compartments where you can display your press folders. If you plan on having folders on display in multiple languages, we recommend renting one compartment per language. A member of our staff will tend to your press compartments during the entire fair and refill them when necessary.
