- Industry 4.0
- Thin glass
- Facades and Smart Glasses as well as
- Craftsmanship and interior design.
You can find out how best to protect your glass innovations at the German Patent and Trade Mark Office's stand in Hall 10, Stand 10A22 on all days of the fair.
For utility models, trade marks and designs which are displayed at a domestic or foreign exhibition prior to filing an application with the DPMA, "exhibition protection" may be claimed, which is known as exhibition priority. In principle, the filing date is crucial for the priority of an application and for examining novelty of the invention or the design. This principle is modified by the exhibition priority, which grants applicants protection in the form of a right of priority from the very first day of the display at the exhibition. Please refer to our glossary for detailed information on exhibition priority. You will find an overview of trade fairs published by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection pursuant to Section 15(3) of the Design Act (Designgesetz), Section 6a(3) of the Utility Model Act (Gebrauchsmustergesetz) and Section 35(3) of the Trade Mark Act (Markengesetz) under the search term "Ausstellungsschutz" (exhibition protection) in the Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger).

 Mobile IP experts
Why are industrial property rights important? We will be pleased to answer this question. Even at trade fairs. We often realise that, even though exhibitors at trade fairs require a lot of information about IP rights, they lack the time to visit the DPMA’s information stands. We have found a solution. Trained DPMA staff visit exhibitors directly at their stands as part of our mobile trade fair team “Mobile IP experts”. We provide information about search facilities and ask the exhibitors what kind of information they need for the protection of innovations, trade marks or designs. In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of written information material online. If you wish, we can also send it by post.
Please make an appointment with us if you would like us to visit you at your stand. You can call us on +49 89 2195-1000.
