Protection during your trade fair experience—safety first!

Hygiene rules at Messe Augsburg

For visitors

The Messe Augsburg trade fair centre has sufficient space to maintain the minimum distance of 1.5 m at all times. A special route will be set up in the entrance areas and intersections to avoid bottlenecks.

Disinfection and cleaning
Sanitiser dispensers are easily accessible all around the Messe Augsburg centre. More frequent cleaning intervals for contact surfaces (e.g. handrails, door handles, tables) have been implemented.

Mandatory mouth and nose protection
Mandatory mouth-nose protection applies to protect all trade fair participants. The mandatory mask requirement does not apply to specific areas of the trade fair, e.g. the hospitality and catering areas.

Our exhibition spaces are equipped with state-of-the-art ventilation systems which can be turned on and off in individual areas.

Hygiene in toilet and sanitary facilities
Our sanitary facilities are cleaned at even more frequent intervals. Hand-washing and sanitising facilities are provided at the appropriate distance.

Contactless routes through the exhibition centre
With the exception of fire doors, all doors remain permanently open to reduce contact with surfaces.

Ticket sales
Tickets are sold exclusively online. The tickets are available anytime, anywhere on any device, and entry is contactless.

For exhibitors

Design of your trade fair stand
Maintain the minimum distance of 1.5 m between persons on the stand at all times.

Establishing business contacts
Also maintain the minimum distance for business appointments and avoid physical contact and shaking hands. Document the contact data of your interlocutors.

Hygiene on your stand
Sanitisers must be provided on every trade fair stand; the surfaces must be cleaned regularly or after each business meeting. The stand personnel must be trained in the hygiene regulations.

Events and stand parties
Please understand that “party-type” events may not be held on trade fair stands at present.

You will find all the guidelines and recommendations regarding your attendance at the trade fair at our centre here:

General information for all participants

Avoiding groups of people
There will be special regulations where increased numbers of people may congregate and could form queues. This applies e.g. to cloakrooms, bag control for security, turnstiles, information counters and lifts. We plan the entrance situation individually for each event and calculate flows of persons and maximum numbers of people for each entrance. We also specify minimum distances in the waiting areas. The rules regarding hygiene and conduct are also prominently displayed. Our staff are also trained in the hygiene regulations and can therefore provide information and assistance.

Subsequent monitoring through the full registration of all attendees
All trade fair attendees will have registered in advance using online ticket purchasing or their exhibitor ID to receive their access authorisation. This is how we can ensure we can identify and contact attendees in the event of a coronavirus outbreak. Ill persons or those feeling ill will be refused entry to the centre.

Catering and hospitality
Our catering partner can provide extensive catering and hospitality services for the exhibition spaces and stands that comply with the legal requirements. This includes measures such as contactless payment.

Medical services
Qualified medical services are available on site at all times.

Number of participants at the trade fair centre
We use the online registration of visitors and exhibitors to ensure we constantly monitor the number of attendees and to therefore maintain the minimum distance of 1.5 m at all times.

Measures for conferences
Conferences are an important part of many of our trade fairs. We will change the number of seats and provide separate entrances and exits to the conference space to protect all participants. No standing room will be available.

Expansion of the area
If necessary, we will explore the option of making larger areas available for each event. We will determine the width of the walkways and traffic areas for each event in advance to ensure the minimum distance of 1.5 m can be maintained.
