Application Startups@BIOFACH/VIVANESS

For you as a start-up or young company we have now put together additional and special start-up packages. Since federal funding by the BMWi is unfortunately not available at a digital trade fair, NürnbergMesse takes over the "funding" in digital format.

In concrete terms, this means cheaper packages and special formats for all start-ups and young companies whose company was founded no longer than five years ago.

To make it easier for you to decide on the most suitable participation option, we have compiled an overview of the available start-up exhibitor packages in the following factsheet
