The convention for entertainment technologies combines exhibition, networking and education, and focuses on industry topics. The result is a unique mix of exhibition and customer experience, because LEaT con is not just a product show we also provide experiences and inspire with the latest topics.
LEaT con provides an open hall concept in which stages, speaker corners and networking areas are lined with exhibitor stands. This creates a marketplace atmosphere that offers plenty of inspiration and space for industry participants to exchange ideas with each other.
Convention participants can expect an extensive program tailored to the latest industry topics, interdisciplinary and entertaining product shows, informative interviews with the industry's leading experts, new contacts and innovative technology in a relaxed networking atmosphere.
Why should I exhibit at LEaT con?
LEaT con 2022 will prove the professionalization and digitalization of the industry and highlight the opportunities and potential. It makes the perfect platform for manufacturers and service providers from the entertainment and install sector to showcase themselves to interested B2B customers. Our event takes place in the fall and offers, especially this year, an opportunity to meet with customers in a relaxed atmosphere after a busy summer of trade fairs.
What is unique about the concept of LEaT con?
After our kick-off event, LEaT con X, we adapted the concept for LEaT con with feedback from exhibitors and visitors and responded to your wishes. With our concept we offer you as an exhibitor maximum comfort and manage the biggest part for your participation at LEaT con, giving you the possibility to focus on your customers. The request to keep the atmosphere of the Schuppen 52 (location of the LEaT con) we have adapted with “The Squares” in the halls of the Hamburg trade fair. We offer you the possibility to stay focused on the essentials – your visitors. Our team will take care of the rest.
What are “The Squares” ?
The Squares are a recreation of the LEaT con X set-up. In seven themed Squares, we offer 13,000 sqm of spaces in various sizes. The areas in the outer ring of each square always face inwards. The stands have a fully printed display wall at a height of 2.50 m and are separated at the sides by a partition wall at a height of 1.09 m. In the middle isles, exhibitors have the opportunity to display their products and services. In the middle islands, exhibitors will be able to position themselves prominently next to the networking areas and the catering zones.

Pyrotechnics require a separate permit and must be applied for and approved. The authority to contact for these matters is the Behörde für Inneres und Sport. You can find the application form and contact details in the service folder in the exhibitor area.
Is there an exclusive caterer or may I offer my own catering?
Our all-incl. package already includes the catering for you, your team and your visitors, therefore a separate catering is not necessary. However, if you insist on your own catering, we will be happy to put you in touch with Käfer Service.

What is the LEaT con?
LEaT con, the new convention for entertainment technologies for events and install solutions from October 18 to 20, 2022 in Hamburg Messe und Congress (HMC) is different. It intentionally breaks away from the classic trade fair concept and offers an innovative event experience with a combination of exhibition and convention. Unlike classic trade fairs, LEaT con enhances product presentations with comprehensive information for visitors and the growing importance of exchange between the various industry participants on overarching topics, all in a single space. The result is a unique mix of exhibition and customer experience that will inspire the audience of the new convention for entertainment technologies for events and install solutions and sustainably support and promote the community spirit of the industry.
Where will LEaT con take place?
LEaT con will take place on the 18th-20th of October in Hall B6 at the Hamburg Messe exhibition center.
Who organizes LEaT con?
The organizer of LEaT con is Ebner Media Group GmbH and Co. KG.
What is planned in terms of the program?
The LEaT academy, as the organizer of the convention’s conference program, will provide key educational content for the visiting audience on all three days, as well as opportunities for interaction with the LEaT brand and exhibitors. Exhibitors can contribute to the program with seminars or workshops, providing a deep dive into their products and their functionalities as well as application. In addition, LEaT con will address topics that are currently affecting the entertainment industry via a variety of keynotes, panel discussions and lectures, ranging from a much-needed effective lobby for the event industry to tax and social security issues, event safety, the shortage and promotion of young professionals and much more.
Will there be an evening event?
Yes, there will be! We’ll wrap up the first day of the event with a networking evening featuring live music, hop brews and snacks in the stage area of the hall.
Do you have any side events planned?
Of course we do. But we don’t reveal details about our events until right before the event.
Have you given any thought to the issue of sustainability and large-scale events?
Sustainability is a big issue for us and is therefore reflected in our concept. With our system stands, exhibitors don’t have to hire their own stand builders, which not only saves time and planning effort, but also minimizes the stand builders’ trips and CO2 emissions. After the event, the system stands end up completely back in storage and therefore we are minimizing waste. In the aisles, we do not use carpet at all. Even recyclable carpet that is laid out for three days has to be produced first. We explicitly do not use plastic or cardboard tableware for our catering.

Which hygiene and safety concept do you have?

Will there be press tickets/accreditations?
Of course there will be tickets for the press and a separate accreditation. If you are interested, you can find the press contact person here.
