The Elbstand Messebau GmbH, based in Hamburg, was founded in 2007 from the experiences and ideas of the two managing directors Manuel Meyer and Ronny Gottwald and is composed of a team of architects, project managers, fitters and craftsmen who can rely on their many years of activity in the field of exhibition construction.

We see ourselves as a young, flexible and creative exhibition construction company. Our actions are determined by a close and team-oriented cooperation with our customers. A smooth and high-quality implementation of projects is always our ultimate goal. Our motivation comes from the fun of the work and the enthusiasm for the projects of our customers.

Beginning with the first exchange of ideas, we try to get a precise picture of the customers’ communication goals and take their perspective in order to be guided by them. In this way, we ensure that every single step - from the initial idea through the visualisation up to the concrete measures - brings us closer to the implementation of the customers’ wishes so that we can finally achieve our goals.

Transparency and a continuous exchange of information guarantee customer satisfaction as well as project success. A clear communication of the costs, the determination and the punctual fulfilment of subtasks, a comprehensive debriefing and support: These and other aspects are an essential part of the overall success and are therefore indispensable for us.

The size of a project and the budget play a minor role. Whether expansive or minimalist, from tailor-made stand architecture to cost-effective, modular solutions - in our view, a successful appearance is by no means a mere question of cost. With creativity, wit and charm, impressive performances can be arranged even with tight budgets.

We look forward to a good and successful cooperation!



The foundation stone of Elbstand Messebau was laid on 12/12/2007 by the two managing directors Ronny Gottwald and Manuel Meyer. Renowned customers were quickly convinced by the services and experience of Elbstand Messebau and the company was transformed into a limited liability company. At the beginning of 2010, Elbstand Messebau GmbH relocated its headquarters to the port of Hamburg in Herrmann Blohm Strasse, and the team as well as the references of Elbstand expanded. With the takeover of the Paliso carpentry in 2015, Elbstand has now grown into a full-service company in the field of exhibition construction, office equipment, furniture and shop design. The headquarters of Elbstand Messebau GmbH was relocated to the factory premises of the Paliso furniture factory in Bad Bramstedt at the end of 2015.
