The Safest Place To Meet

Safety and health standards at all about automation

Our commitment: Your safety

The Safest Place To Meet is the title of the hygiene safety concept for all about automation. This certified concept means that our exhibitions are controlled and conducted safely for all visitors, exhibitors and employees. It is equally important to us that all those involved feel comfortable under the new conditions whilst achieving their exhibition objectives.

In autumn 2020, we were able to successfully hold two all about automation exhibitions  with a hygiene safety concept.

Current status at the end of May 2021:
In some federal states, the holding of exhibitions is generally permitted again – depending on the local incidence rate and based on time-stretched opening steps.

We will adapt the concept to the requirements of the authorities and the current framework conditions by the time of the exhibition.

Services to make your visit as safe, efficient and pleasant as possible:

  • Registration for half-day time slots: This allows us to optimally control the maximum number of visitors.
    • Register with the free ticket code you have received from exhibitors or partners of the exhibition or purchase a ticket in advance.
    • If you wish, you can also register for a second time slot and thus extend your visit to the exhibition.
  • Networking Tables as meeting areas outside the stands: These will allow discussions to take place in areas that ensure that people keep at a safe distance.
  • Certification by SGS: SGS, one of the world’s leading inspection, testing and certification companies, will monitor compliance throughout the event and certify the hygiene safety concept.

As a visitor, please pay attention to the following

To guarantee your place, please register in advance

Please be sure to register in advance for your visit to the exhibition. In order that the exhibition runs as smoothly as possible, we have defined a maximum number of visitors per half-day. This year you will be asked to choose a half-day time slot with the option to extend your visit to the exhibition by registering for a second.

Plenty of space and room for everyone: please keep to the minimum distance!

We are putting in place spacious additional areas and corridors, marked pathways, distance markings, information signs and much more. Wherever possible, please keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m to other participants.

If it gets too crowded on the stands, please use the additional seats at the networking tables for your one-to-one conversations.

Contactless info: Use the Smart Badge!

Visitors will receive an intelligent visitor badge on admission to the exhibition which will enable visitors and exhibitors to exchange contact data and information digitally via TOUCH & COLLECT. Exhibitors will receive a  smart badge reader during the set-up.

While moving through the exhibition, please wear a mask! (almost everywhere…)

When visiting the exhibition, it is compulsory to wear a mask covering your mouth and nose. The exceptions to this are the outdoor areas and the marked seating areas. If you do not have a mask with you, we can provide you with one free of charge.

Please use hand sanitiser and follow hygiene standards AT ALL TIMES!

Wash and disinfect your hands thoroughly and frequently. Hand sanitising stands are located all over the venue.

Stick to the hygiene rules: give a smile instead of a handshake, sneeze and cough into your elbow.

Enjoy the taste of free snacks and drinks.

A corresponding catering concept will be implemented on the basis of the official requirements. (Status: 27.05.2021)

For everyone’s safety, please install the Corona Warning App!

We recommend using the Corona Warning App of the German government. You can find information about the app and download it here.

Negatives Test-Ergebnis & Test-Center

It can be assumed that the regulations stipulate that only fully vaccinated and recovered persons or persons with a current rapid test have access to the exhibition grounds. We will work out a concept for each exhibition on how rapid tests can be carried out easily and promptly for exhibitors and visitors. (Status: 27.05.2021)

Vitally important: please stay at home in the following cases!

You will not be allowed to attend the fair if one of the following applies:

  • You have had contact with anyone who has had Covid-19 in the 14 days before the fair begins.
  • You suffer from acute, unspecific general symptoms and respiratory symptoms of any severity.
  • You have visited a Covid-19 risk area according to RKI in the last 14 days and have not had a negative Covid-19 test (issued at the earliest 48 hours before entry or in Germany after return) or a medical certificate.

Hygiene safety concept

We are in close contact with Messe Friedrichshafen and the responsible authorities of the state of Baden-Württemberg regarding all protection and hygiene measures. The concept is based on the hygiene and infection standards of the CoronaSchVO for Baden-Württemberg, which are issued for trade fairs.

The concept includes measures for crowd control, compliance with minimum distances, high hygiene standards and the tracking of contacts.

If necessary, we will adapt the concept in line with the changing requirements of the national and regional authorities and any general conditions which emerge before the exhibition date.

We have prepared three documents to ensure that all those involved in the exhibition are fully informed.

Visitor Guide
Exhibitor Guide

This guide summarises all important information for visitors.

Especially for exhibitors we have prepared a guide with all important information. In this guide, exhibitors will find the points they need to consider in their trade fair preparation with regard to Covid-19 and which the stand personnel on site must observe and implement.

It goes without saying that we are in close contact with the fairground and the responsible authorities regarding all hygiene safety measures.
