The Booth

Included Booth Material

Your booth will be equipped with the items and services detailed below. For any additional equipment, prints, or materials, please utilize our exhibitor shop by the deadline of 8 March 2024.

If you're not hiring a custom booth constructor, your standard booth will be set up and ready for occupancy on Monday, 8 April 2024, at 18:00.

  • Rear and side construction walls
  • Aisle sides open
  • Front panels with company name on aisle side(s) (max 20 characters)

Individual Stand Construction

If you're considering designing a custom booth instead of utilizing the materials included in your booking, it's essential to discuss specifics like stand height, fire safety measures, construction timing, and logistics with us at your earliest convenience.

You're free to hire a construction company for your booth setup. If you're still searching for one, we recommend our trusted partner, expofair. They can either handle the construction or suggest reliable construction firms in the area.

Ceiling Suspensions / Hanging Points

Enhance the prominence of your presentation by suspending materials, such as banners, from the ceiling directly above your booth.

This service requires a minimum of 2 hanging points. The exact cost varies based on the booth's position within the hall and the intricacy of the setup. As a rough estimate, 2 suspension points from the rigging might be priced at 1,000 EUR + VAT.
Please contact us to determine the exact costs and to coordinate construction.


  • The distance from the edge of the stand must be at least 1 m.
  • The lower edge of the suspended material should be between 3.5 and 4.5 m from the ground.
  • The height of the suspended item must not surpass 2.5 m.
  • All relevant regulations must be strictly followed.
  • Approval is mandatory from both the event organizer and the venue.

It's crucial to ensure timely delivery by coordinating well in advance of the event's start date.

Exhibit Placements

To showcase your company’s products more prominently, consider displaying them as exhibits outside your booth within the event area.

Price: 50 Euro/sqm + VAT, with a minimum booking of 4 sqm.

Logistics Note: On-site logistics will be overseen by BISCHOFF Event Service & Transport (details provided below). This might result in additional charges. Furthermore, BISCHOFF can handle the entire logistics process, starting from your location.

Example positions:

  • X1: A prime location right beneath the entrance to the ptc Conference area.
  • A spot within the ptc Conference area.
  • An area in the ptc 2024 foyer.
  • A setup in the ptc Dinner Invitation location (only Wednesday Evening, in connection with a sponsorship)


You can directly book supplementary equipment like furniture, stand cleaning, flowers, roll-ups, and more, through our online shop.

Should you have any additional ideas or requests, please contact us. We're here to assist you!

  • Pickup: Thursday, 11 April 2024, from 14:00 to 17:00

Please use the road and entrances solely for unloading (Monday) / loading (Thursday). To ensure smooth operations for all exhibitors, promptly vacate the area after you're done. When departing, exit through Gate 3.

For stand and logistics companies, individual arrangements can be made. Please contact us for more details.


Estrel Underground Parking Garage

The Estrel provides its own underground parking garage with a capacity of 450 spaces. Entry is via Ziegrastraße. The maximum daily rate is 22 EUR (as of September 2023).

Ziegrastraße 1 Car Park

Another parking option is the “Ziegrastraße 1” open air car park (open link for a map as of February 2023). Suitable for cars and vehicles under 7.5 t, this car park is available for a fee without any restrictions. Please be aware that the maximum entry height is 3.50 m, making it unsuitable for larger vehicles or articulated lorries. The daily rate for parking here is 12 EUR (as of February 2023). Conveniently, it's located just a 5-minute walk from the Estrel's main entrance.

Shipping by parcel post

The venue (Estrel) does not offer storage for parcels before, after or during ptc. If you still wish to send parcels directly to the event, send them directly to your hotel room during your stay or with a courier / freight forwarder directly to your booth.

As an alternative, you may also send your materials to our freight forwarder, Bischoff, who will do the handling and deliver them to your booth.

Large goods

Large goods can be sent to the event grounds directly. Delivery is possible all day on 8 April 2023 by prior arrangement, collection on 11 April 2023 from 4 pm. Please ensure that we are notified of the delivery time by telephone in good time so that preparations can be made if necessary. Delivery can be made at ground level to the booth. The use of pallet trucks (rollers for indoor use!) is possible, forklifts are not.

For the transport of large goods we recommend the company Bischoff.

Freight Forwarder for large goods

EITEP has partnered with a recommended freight forwarder to simplify your logistics needs. BISCHOFF Event Service & Transport provides comprehensive logistical services before, during, and after the event. This includes the long-term storage and transport of larger items.

The venue

The Estrel

The 19th Pipeline Technology Conference is set to be hosted at the Estrel Berlin, one of Europe’s most expansive convention and hotel complexes.

The Estrel seamlessly merges a First Class Superior hotel, boasting over 1000 beds, with an expansive Congress and Convention area within a single architectural ensemble.

Both the Exhibition and Conference will be held within the same building. All breaks are scheduled to occur within the exhibition area.

Estrel Berlin
Sonnenallee 225
12057 Berlin


The Estrel Berlin is conveniently accessible both by car and public transportation:

  • The proximate highways, A100 and A113, are a mere 1.5 kilometers away.
  • The Berlin-Brandenburg airport (BER) is situated 13 kilometers from the venue.
  • The “Sonnenallee” S-Bahn commuter train station is a short 3-minute walk away.
  • Both a bus stop and taxi rank are conveniently located right outside the hotel.

Additionally, the hotel’s underground parking garage provides 450 parking spaces. For more detailed directions, please click here.

Restaurants & Bars

If you're considering inviting current or prospective partners for a meeting, the Estrel’s restaurants and bars offer the perfect setting. An overview of the restaurants and bars located within the Estrel Atrium can be found here.

The two Atrium bars serve as popular gathering spots for ptc participants, especially after an exhaustive conference day, following ptc get-together on Tuesday evening and the Dinner Invitation night on Wednesday evening.
For meetings, ptc holds their own meeting rooms ready for you within the event area.

Accommodation Advice

Even though the Estrel, with its capacity of over 1,000 beds, stands as Germany’s largest hotel, it's expected to be fully booked during ptc 2024.

To maximize your ptc experience, we strongly recommend booking your accommodation directly at the Estrel Hotel. We've reserved a special room contingent for our attendees. For more details, please visit our website.


As an exhibitor at the Pipeline Technology Conference, it's imperative to adhere to the regulations set forth by both the venue, the Estrel, and the organizer, the EITEP Institute. The official documents outlining these regulations can be accessed below:


The rules provided here are applicable to all events organized by EITEP, including the 18th Pipeline Technology Conference. If you have any questions or require clarifications, please contact us.


If you're considering having your stand custom-built by a stand construction company, these guidelines are crucial. However, if you don't plan on this or intend to use Expofair for stand construction, most sections of this document may not be relevant to you.

The guidelines also detail conditions related to food distribution, water and wastewater installations, and the use of radio frequencies (e.g., Wi-Fi, Interpreters, Exhibitors). For any inquiries, please reach out to us first. We will then liaise with the venue on your behalf.
