VisiFair: A tailor-made solution to ensure smooth-running trade fair logistics
Trade fair companies have always been faced with major logistical challenges. Traffic flows during the assembly and dismantling phases of all kinds of events, both small and large, need to be coordinated on a just-in-time basis. This is a problem with many unknowns, especially in urban locations like Berlin. A traffic jam on the main access road, delays during unloading or occupied parking spaces can become a test of endurance for everyone involved.
Now the new VisiFair planning system is being introduced to facilitate efficient access to the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.
Planning security thanks to on-time and stress-free access
Every minute counts when setting up a trade fair stand. So to ensure that you, as exhibitor and business partner, have all the materials, exhibits etc. ready and available exactly when they are needed, Messe Berlin is offering you this new digital service.
The VisiFair system optimizes traffic procedures and ensures efficient delivery and collection.
Using VisiFair, you can easily book time slots in advance to suit your schedule. Your advance booking grants you direct entry permission to the grounds. Drivers are informed in good time so that they can arrive punctually at the pre-booked loading zone. VisiFair also has an integrated payment system to ensure easy payment transactions.
VisiFair untangles peak-time traffic during assembly and disassembly periods, thus helping to avoid traffic jams on main access routes as well as reducing possible additional costs caused by delays. VisiFair makes advance planning more reliable for you as an exhibitor and business partner and enables you to plan and utilize your time on the exhibition grounds more efficiently.
With VisiFair, Messe Berlin is providing a digital logistics solution which optimizes overall traffic planning activities and provides optimum traffic control. You as exhibitor and business partner reap the benefits.
