Safe personal networking thanks to incidence-independent hygiene concept

NürnbergMesse has been working with the Bavarian regional government and Bavarian trade fair companies to develop a workable hygiene plan to allow FachPack to be visited safely. It is based on the incidence-independent framework hygiene concept for trade fairs and exhibitions currently in force in Bavaria. Specific measures to protect trade fair participants include regular air exchange and an ultra-modern ventilation concept, social distancing by means of space planning and capacity management, mask mandates indoors, on-site hygiene measures, and digital registration and access systems with associated contact tracing options.

Another essential cornerstone is the “3G rule”, which restricts entry to visitors who are vaccinated, have recovered from an infection, or have returned a negative test result. For updated information on the hygiene concept and protective measures please go to:
