Do I have to pay VAT as an exhibitor from abroad?
Thanks to the amendment of the German Sales Tax legislation (UStG) of 1 January 2011, under certain circumstances, exhibitors from outside Germany will be entitled to receive invoices free of VAT (currently 19 %). Therefore please indicate your VAT Identification Number on the registration form (for enterprises with their registered office within the EU).
How is the glass washing service organised and how much does it cost?
At a flat-rate charge of EUR 130 each exhibitor will be supplied with three racks of high-quality rental glasses of Schott Zwiesel AG (only applicable when glasses are needed). These will be collected from the stand, wahsed and returned by the service.
Exhibitors can choose from different forms of glasses. Please note that the flat-rate must also be charged in case the exhibitor brings his own glasses.
Where can I park my car at the MOC?
Long-term parking is available in the underground car park right under the exhibition halls (max. height 2.20 m) for 8,- EUR per day incl. VAT. The MOC offers no parking for vehicles higher than 2.20 m, but usually there are sufficient parking spots in the area.
Is there a registration deadline for FORUM VINI?
There is no deadline for registration. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend an early booking of your stand space with regard to the positioning as well as to the ideal preparation and promotion of your participation.
When do I have to order everything I need for my trade fair participation?
In general, all orders should be made at least one month before the beginning of the fair, particularly because some companies might have bottle-necks or difficulties in delivery. In addition, some companies charge an extra fee for orders on short notice.
Which companies are DEFINITELY NOT business partners of the organiser?
We have been notified that every now and then, the companies Construct Data Verlag GmbH, Vösendorf/Austria and expoGuide (Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV) contact our exhibitors for their fair guide (www.fairguide.com). They give the impression of being connected to the organiser of the fair and of asking for permission for an entry in the online list of exhibitors of FORUM VINI. Please note that the entry in our online directory remains free of charge!
We have tried to have our trade fairs deleted from their directory, up to now unfortunately without success. In many cases, the data online is wrong or outdated. We dissociate from the company Construct Data. Please let us know if you wish to receive two judgements by German courts against this company from 2004.

No. On October 1st 2008 Munich established an environmental zone in the city. Vehicles which are driven in this zone need an emission sticker. As the MOC is located outside this zone an emission sticker for your vehicle is not needed.
However, should you plan going through the zone by car, you can find further information here.
