Questions regarding stand construction
As the minimum distance of 1.5 m must be maintained at all times and the walking paths must therefore not be blocked, conversations in the aisles should be avoided. You are very welcome to use one of the Communication Zones with your conversation partner if a conversation is not possible on your stand area due to space limitations.
Which particular documents and markings are expected by the authorities and, if necessary, Mesago within an exhibitor’s hygiene concept in the event of controls or in case of investigation of an infection?
No documents or supervisory plans are expected. The sense of responsibility of each individual is required.

Unfortunately, a face shield will not be sufficient and does not cover the mouth and nose. If the infection level has permanently stabilized at a low level, the mouth-nose cover may be removed from exhibition stands at the table, provided that the minimum distance of 1.5 m can be maintained. In this case, the contact data (name, place of residence, telephone number or e-mail address and period of stay) of the contact person must be recorded.
