Hygiene concepts at trade fairs in Germany

After a standstill of almost two years, trade fairs are once again taking place everywhere in Germany. By April 3 at the latest, access restrictions such as 3G or 2G regulations, capacity restrictions, distance requirements or masking obligations will also no longer apply at trade fairs nationwide. Restrictions can now only be imposed by the federal states if the state parliament determines a localized, threatening infection situation.

Trade fairs in Germany are safe. Trade fair organizers have holistic health protection concepts that have been continuously developed since the beginning of the Corona crisis. Safe trade fair participation is ensured by the following measures:

  1. Visitor flow management
    By means of guidance systems, trained personnel and electronic control systems, exhibition organisers will ensure that streams of visitors do not meet too closely.

  2. High air quality
    By means of modern ventilation systems, the exhibition centres ensure good ventilation of entrance areas, halls and conference rooms. This is further supported by corresponding specifications for open stand construction.

  3. Cooperation with exhibitors
    Trade fair organizers are happy to provide their exhibitors with recommendations and advice on how to safely design their booths and plan their trade show operations.

  4. Hygiene standards 
    The trade fair organizers provide disinfectants in high density and clean all contact surfaces in close cycles. This applies both during the entire duration of the trade fair and during the periods of set-up and dismantling.

  5. Ensuring contact tracking
    All exhibitors, visitors and service providers on the grounds are registered with name and address. Visitor tickets are usually only available online and relate to fixed days of visit. This would allow contact tracking if required.

Below you will find an overview of the instructions given by the trade fair organisers in Germany on how to handle Covid-19 on the exhibition grounds and at trade fairs. This overview is not exhaustive. We try to keep this overview as up-to-date as possible.
