The ISC 2019 organizers or Messe Frankfurt are not liable for losses and/or damages to your freight/exhibits. Every exhibitor is responsible for their own materials and equipment.

Insurance policies can be purchased through the partners of Schenker, Messe Frankfurt or any insurance company of your choice.

Logistics Insurance

SpV (German Liability Insurance): this is a mandatory but very basic insurance. Any German freight forwarder has to cover the premium in case you do not have your own transport insurance. It protects you as the owner of the equipment in case of an insurance claim, but the liability is fairly low and will most likely not reach the value of the damage. Secondly, it covers your freight forwarder if they cause a claim related to your properties. The premium depends on the value of your freight. If unknown, your freight forwarder will estimate the value on your behalf.


Transport insurance: this is an optional insurance you can order for the best possible coverage of your exhibits. Most regular insurance companies on the market offer a transport insurance as part of their portfolio. You can choose a transport insurance that covers all your company’s transports throughout the year or one transport specifically. Premiums vary depending on your transport frequencies, type of equipment and destinations. If you have your own transport insurance, kindly inform Schenker so that they will not cover the SpV insurance for you. Schenker also offers transport insurances in cooperation with their preferred supplier, the insurer AXA.

Exhibition Insurance

An exhibition insurance policy provides you with comprehensive insurance coverage not only during transport to and from event, but also for the duration of the trade fair or exhibition itself.

During transport to and from the exhibition and during the event itself, you will be insured in particular against loss and damage from:

  • Accidents involving the means of transport
  • Fire, lightning, explosion
  • Earthquakes
  • Storms, flooding or other natural forces
  • Mains water
  • Burglary
  • Theft
  • Breakage
  • Malicious damage

You can choose between a short-term exhibition insurance policy for the duration of a single trade fair and a framework agreement that covers all of the trade fairs that you are involved in.


Exhibition insurance is available for order through the Messe Frankfurt online "Shop for Exhibitor Services" in the section “stand services”.

Other Insurances

Other useful insurance policies exhibitors should consider are liability insurance, accident insurance and luggage insurance.
