Movable parts thereof, e.g. when demonstrating, don't get out of there. Hazardous parts, such as sharp, protruding parts, must be effectively shielded. Furthermore, the goods may not be covered during opening hours; the organizers may remove any cover without any liability. Visibly disfiguring items on the stands are not allowed. The participant may not remove any exhibited goods from the stand during the exhibition. If small parts of the stand inventory need to be repaired, we request that this be done after the trade fair has closed. For urgent repairs, the repairer can collect a Supplier Badge in the Central Hall.

Animals on the stand

It is not allowed by the organizers of PROVADA for the participant to have or exhibit animals on or around his stand.


Objects can be placed on elevations, provided the elevations do not exceed 60cm measured from the floor of the building. This can be deviated from with written permission from the organizers (see Etagebouw in the Exhibitor Services webshop). You must then apply for a permit.


The floor of the stand must be properly finished by installing floor coverings such as carpet or carpet tiles. In the unlikely event that adhesive tape from carpet tiles etc. is left on the hall floor after the exhibition, the participant will receive an invoice for the costs of removal. The use of special floor coverings (concrete tiles, sand, gravel, etc.) requires written permission from the organizers, which must be requested when submitting the stand design. Before such materials are supplied, a plastic cover should be placed on the floor. Painting floors is not allowed. Elevations are placed, provided that the elevations do not exceed 60 cm, measured from the floor of the building.
