Information regarding the hygiene concept

To ensure that trade fairs can take place safely and successfully even during the coronavirus pandemic, Messe München and other Bavarian trade-fair companies have worked out a safety and hygiene concept, which was officially ratified by the Bavarian state government on 23 June 2020. This concept ensures that trade fairs can start again from September 2020. Essentially, it is based on three topics:

  • Social distancing
  • Hygiene
  • Traceability of all participants

The most important points include the general rule of 1.5 meters distance on the whole grounds. Where this distance cannot be maintained, and generally indoors, a mask is mandatory. If the infection rate continues to fall, which can be assumed from today's point of view, the mouth and nose cover can be removed from exhibition stands at the table. The traceability of all participants is guaranteed by pre-registration and our admission system.
