The health of all participants is our top priority. The basis for the event is therefore a detailed health and hygiene concept which implements the currently valid protection regulations of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and thus ensures the safety of all participants.
According to the current Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, a negative COVID-19 test result (rapid or PCR-test, not older than 48 hours, self-tests are not valid) is required for participation in an exhibition and must be shown before entering.
Instead of providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, immunisation and thus exemption from the testing requirement may be proven by:
- proof of a complete vaccination against COVID-19 completed at least 14 days prior with a vaccine licensed in the European Union, e.g. with a vaccination certificate.
- proof of a positive test result based on laboratory diagnostics using nucleic acid detection (PCR, PoC-PCR or other methods of nucleic acid amplification technology) and dating back at least 28 days and a maximum of six months, or
- proof of a positive test result in accordance with number 2 in combination with proof of the administration of at least one vaccine dose against COVID-19 at least 14 days prior with a vaccine approved in the European Union.
In order to protect the health of all, the minimum distance of 1.50 m should also be kept at business appointments and body contact as shaking hands should be avoided.
There will be numerous disinfection dispencers throughout the hall, the entrance area, sanitary facilities etc.
On the exhibition stands, contact surfaces such as tables, chairs, counters etc. have to be cleaned regularly resp. after each visitor.
At the entire exhibition, participants are obliged to wear a mouth-note-protection.
Excluded from this are outdoor areas and seats on the exhibition stands and the catering area, provided that sufficient distance can be maintained.
The minimum distance of 1.50 m has to be maintained at all times.
In the hall, the movement areas (entrance, corridors, etc.) are designed so that the minimum distance can be maintained.
The exhibition stands have to be designed so that the minimum distance can also be maintained here at all times.
In order to register possible infection chains, all participants must register in advance.
The scan on site will be contactless.
The distribution of food and beverages at the exhibition stands is generally permitted. The catering company or stand operator must ensure compliance with the legal requirements under Corona conditions. If an external catering company is engaged, each person must be registered individually and must be included in the permitted number of stand staff.
