Trade fair participation in times of Covid-19 pandemic

Recommendations on hygiene concepts and health protection for exhibitors at German trade fairs

Trade fairs offer a reliable platform for dialogue even in times of corona. The large and modern exhibition centres in Germany have optimum conditions for implementing the hygiene concepts. An overview of the organisers’ individual hygiene concepts can be found here. Your trade fair organiser will be happy to advise you on questions regarding the preparations for your trade fair presentation.

AUMA would like to provide you with the following recommendations in order to support your trade fair appearance during corona times.

Structural aspects

  • Plan and design your trade fair stand while taking into account visitor management so that a minimum distance between people can be maintained.

  • Sufficient ventilation of the booth should be ensured; therefore, the most open design possible is prioritized.

  • Smooth surfaces that wipe well should be used for physical contact points such as counters, tables and doorknobs.

  • Meeting areas should be planned and designed with sufficient dimensions so that the users of these areas can also maintain a minimum distance, if necessary.

  • The same applies to the planning and arrangement of exhibits and presentation areas.

Organisational measures

  • Train your stand personnel sufficiently before the trade fair to comply with hygiene and occupational safety measures.

  • Offer customers and visitors the opportunity to arrange appointments with you in advance.

  • Prefer digital offers to leaflets or other embodied promotional materials. This also protects the environment.

Hygiene measures

  • The trade fair companies will provide disinfection facilities for all participants at various locations on the trade fair site. In addition to this, also place sufficient disinfectant dispensers on your stand; especially in the entrance area of the stand.

  • The information counter, tables, exhibits and all other contact surfaces should be disinfected regularly during the exhibition. 

  • Try to maintain self-discipline concerning hand-to-face-movements.

  • Avoid unnecessary physical contact.
