High quality standards for the health of trade fair participants at German trade fairs

Hygiene and distance concepts at trade fairs in Germany

In 2020, the German exhibition companies developed detailed hygiene and distance concepts for holding trade fairs in close coordination with the responsible health authorities and building on the specifications from the corona protection ordinances of the federal states. On this basis, more than 20 exhibitions were successfully and safely held last autumn under excellent conditions with spacious areas to control the flow of visitors, modern ventilation systems and full registration of all participants.

Basic points of all hygiene concepts and social distancing measures for your safety are for example

  • Keeping a minimum distance of 1.5 metre between all persons on the exhibition centres
  • Stream of visitors is controlled at entry areas and within the halls by consistent crowd management to avoid a high concentration of people
  • Complete registration of visitors, exhibitor and service staff and other participants to enable tracking
  • Observance of strict sanitary rules on the exhibition centres; especially frequent cleaning cycles for shared facilities and contact surfaces
  • Good aeration of entry areas, halls and conference rooms by modern ventilation installation
  • Numerous possibilities of hand disinfection placed throughout the exhibition centre
  • No welcome rituals like handshakes
  • Wearing a face mask is recommended and to some extent obligatory.
