We shall provide information about sensible prophylactic measures on-site. We are increasingly offering disinfectants, which are considered to be the most effective means against transmission. Highly frequented areas will also be cleaned with increased frequency. Qualified doctors and paramedics in our medical stations are prepared for possible suspicious cases and are available to answer any questions you may have on-site. Should a suspicious case arise during the event, all spatial and organizational precautions are taken on the trade fair grounds to ensure immediate remedial actions.
