  • Equipment – from glasses and crockery to coffee machines and refrigerated containers
  • Planning both kitchens and complete equipment
  • Stand party for 450 guests with a buffet, cocktails and DJ (booking is always done "on the spur of the moment" while the fair is running: two days before the day of the event)
  • All seven days: Bavarian-style "white sausage" breakfast for 250 people before the trade fair is officially opened
  • Electronic ordering system for ordering 325,000 meals and beverages during the trade fair
  • Tailor-made wardrobe for the KBA employees at the information desk



In the upstairs restaurant with seating for about 500 people: big menu (including drinks), short visits by guests, guest management for group reservations

Daily budget-control with allocation of consumption to the individual KBA companies.



"We collaborated on catering with Melles & Stein at the Drupa trade fairs in 2012 and 2016 and have come to know and value the company as a very client-oriented and competent partner. What particularly impressed us was the personal service by the company management and its willingness to respond to our financial and fair-related ideas and wishes flexibly and creatively. Even when looking after our international guests in the major catering area with seating for several hundred guests and a correspondingly large number of beverages and hot meals around midday, the Melles & Stein team impressed with its relaxed professionalism and pleasantness. The service and the delicious meals were well received by the guests. We can recommend Melles & Stein with a good conscience as a catering partner for large and small trade fairs and events in Düsseldorf and the surrounding area."
