Our #B-SAFE4business concept was developed in close coordination with the authorities and is subject to ongoing review and adaptation to the current legal framework and applicable requirements.

Koelnmesse will take into account all precautionary measures for its events on the Cologne exhibition grounds that are assessed as relevant by the responsible health authorities in accordance with the Corona Protection Ordinance. The necessity of these measures will be evaluated on an ongoing basis leading up to the event and prepared accordingly.

The Corona Protection Ordinance will be strictly observed at all times. It stipulates that persons with Covid-19 symptoms such as coughing, sniffles, loss of smell or taste, fever, etc. are not allowed to enter the exhibition grounds. In coordination with the Cologne Health Department, Koelnmesse is already informing its customers of this during the ticket ordering process and throughout the entire trade fair grounds. In addition to this, we have service and security staff on duty who constantly watch for cold symptoms in people on site. If trade fair participants show symptoms during their stay, they will receive immediate medical attention.

Our #B-SAFE4business concept includes a comprehensive cleaning and hygiene concept: from personalised tickets and contactless identity checks at the entrances to specially trained stand personnel to ensure that all hygiene regulations can be easily observed at each exhibitor's stand. Our smartphone app eGuard also helps to guide visitors in the best possible way to avoid accumulations of people and make sure distancing rules can be observed without problems.
