Regardless of whether you already have been an exhibitor (e.g. at another fair or a previous fair), you will receive an e-mail “New Stand” that contains an activation link. Use this link and your existing access information (e-mail address + password) to log into the Exhibitor Shop for automatica.
1. The contact indicated on the registration form is the only person, who receives an activation link for the Exhibitor Shop and can use that link to create a password for the account.
2. If a different correspondence contact has been assigned in the course of your registration, this person also receives an e-mail and automatically a sub-account.
3. If that contact, and therefore the person responsible for the Exhibitor Shop, has changed, please refer to No. 4.
Please send an e-mail with the contact information of the new contact person to email@example.com . Shortly thereafter, they will receive a new activation link and can create their own password at the Exhibitor Shop. The new contact person automatically has access to previously placed orders and can continue placing new ones.
After that, the previous contact person can no longer place orders for this trade fair. The account remains intact, but it will no longer be associated with the respective stand at automatica
Please note: If the activation link in the e-mail is no longer valid, please follow the steps for creating a new account described above.
There are two possible reasons for this:
1. If you have not yet booked any stand space for the selected event, no items will be available for order.
2. The Exhibitor Shop distinguishes between main exhibitors and co-exhibitors. Co-exhibitors do not have the same authorizations and may only order certain products.
The delivery address is identical to the exhibitor's address indicated on the registration form.
The shipping address is taken from the Messe München database. For some items, the detailed description includes instructions to enter a different shipping address in the Comments box on the Product Details page. In most cases, however, the Exhibitor Shop does not allow you to make subsequent changes to the shipping address. Therefore, if you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at +49 89 949 11538.
Yes. The contact person indicated on the registration form for co-exhibitors receives an activation link for the Exhibitor Shop and can use it to create a password for their own account.

All dates and deadlines for automatica are available here. Please be sure to observe the individual order deadlines indicated in the respective product description.
You can access the status of your orders via the order details under “My Orders”. Detailed information is available from the supplier, whose contact information appears in the detailed description of the item in question.
Once you have placed an order, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail.
Some products have a minimum order quantity. Please refer to the detailed description of the product in question.
The items will be included in your final invoice after automatica.
Subaccounts are additional accounts within you own account. You can use them to give employees the ability to place orders themselves.
Generally speaking, accounts in the Exhibitor Shop cannot be deleted. However, you can cancel all the subaccount user's authorizations by deactivating them under “Manage subaccounts”.
If you have booked multiple stands, the system will ask you which stand you wish to place an order for. Select the stand in the corresponding dialog box and confirm with “Continue”. You will be taken to the main page of the shop catalog. If you only have one stand at the fair, the system skips this stand inquiry and takes you directly to the main page after you log in. If you switch to another stand, please keep in mind that everything you order will go to the currently selected stand/customer. Please be sure to always close your order before switching to another stand/customer. The contents of your shopping car will not be deleted when you switch to another stand.
You can view all your orders in the customer menu (which you can reach via “My user account”) under “My orders” in the menu. The link “View order” will take you to the order details, where you can review everything about the order in question.
The Exhibitor Shop can be used with the current versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. It supports Internet Explorer starting at Version 8.
A “Cancellation request” link can be found next to each order item in the order details (which you can reach via “My Account” under “My Orders”). You can use it to request a cancellation from the supplier. Whether or not a cancellation is possible depends on the supplier's General Terms of Business.
In some cases, the cancellation is already deactivated in the system, e.g. if an item has already been shipped or if a specific timeframe has been exceeded. In this case, the “Cancellation request” button no longer appears in the order details.
