TLTF concept is very simple: we provide each exhibitor with a single stand, chairs, table cloth, rails and a sign. We ensure that each and every exhibitor is promoted equally in this way and we don't allow big banners on the floor. Whether a large or a small manufacturer, the modular format of single tables offers an equal opportunity for all.
