Messe Frankfurt ensures a particularly safe event participation for you with a professional safety concept.
Information on holding taking into account the current infection situation (SARS-CoV-2)
The German Infection Protection Act (Bundesinfektionsschutzgesetz), which take effect as of 1 October 2022, authorises federal states to take individual measures to stem the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic depending on the level of infection. The regulation of restrictive measures is due to the need to protect the German healthcare system and to keep critical infrastructure functioning.
At present, we do not expect there to be any access restrictions such as 2G or 3G any longer. We also assume that it will be possible to hold trade visitor events without capacity restrictions or any other fundamental constraints.
The focus is on the individual responsibility of each person taking responsibility for not exposing themselves or others to an unreasonable risk of infection.
In order to protect all guests, participants, organizers, service partners and also its own staff, Messe Frankfurt has adapted its operations to the current situation. Our ventilation systems are operated with the highest proportion of fresh air as possible, which still meets the official energy requirements. Adjusted cleaning intervals and disinfectant dispensers provide additional security.
We recommend you:
- Avoiding crowded situations if possible, or wearing a medical mouth and nose protection if necessary.
- With a precautionary and regular self-test for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, you minimize the risk for yourself and others.
- The same applies to a coronavirus vaccination, which minimizes the risk of a severe course of the disease and the risk of infection for yourself and others.
After 2 years of strict conditions, we are returning to largely regular event operations on the exhibition grounds and buildings of Messe Frankfurt.
The legal requirements for occupational health and safety (SARS-CoV-2 Occupational Health and Safety Ordinance) expired on 25.05.2022. All mandatory rules were deleted without replacement or changed into recommendations.
