Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you want to organize a trade fair, exhibition or market, you will need what is known as an approval from the competent authority. You must apply for this in writing. Once you have been designated, you as the organizer may hold the trade fair, exhibition or market, but you are also obliged to hold the event. However, the event will only be authorized by the competent authority if the requirements of the trade regulations are met.

Further requirements:

  • Personal reliability of the applicant,
  • fulfillment of the requirements set out in the trade regulations for the respective type of event,
  • suitable venue (for example, special markets may not take place in stores).

As soon as the event has been approved, you will receive a written notification. The approval may be subject to conditions.
