Food sampling at the trade fair stand is permitted, either as part of a meeting at a table or as a presentation of samples to taste at the info counter. The products must be presented by stand staff in observance of all hygiene regulations. The taste samples distributed may be packaged or unpackaged. Even if the samples are wrapped, self-service (e.g. from a bowl containing several taste samples) is not permitted.

Exhibitors have permission to prepare food for their trade fair guests in their stand kitchen (no professional catering) as long as all of the requirements – e.g. those that also apply in the catering industry – are met.

In this connection, please also consider the hygiene requirements that apply to table surfaces (regular wiping with changes in guests).
