The Single Areas offer the possibility of individual presentation and are available in two different sizes (10m² and 16m²). The booking organisation can represent other institutions, companies and artists in the Single Areas and invite companies and artists to submit proposals for the programme.

This offers the advantage that you not need to attend your area at all times and have time to explore the Agora of internationale tanzmesse nrw yourself. The Shared Areas are already equipped so that no additional equipment is brought along and equally offer each exhibitor the opportunity for an individual presentation. In the run-up to internationale tanzmesse 2022, the Tanzmesse team will connect and introduce the exhibitors who will be represented together in a Shared Area.
