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.

Status 25 August 2021:

The version of the Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia that came into force on 20 August 2021 consistently implements the decisions of the federal and state consultations of 10 August 2021. The Corona Protection Ordinance with its new system no longer contains any levels of measures, but only links the implementation of the 3G rule to an incidence of 35 or more. In addition, a hygiene concept is prescribed for trade fairs: masks are mandatory, distance rules are recommended, and ventilation and hygiene rules must be implemented.

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.


3-G proof for trade fair admission

You need 3G proof for admission regardless of incidence: complete vaccination protection, recovery or a negative rapid test or PCR test result from an official testing center. The negative test must have been taken no more than 24 hours ago, the second vaccination must have been taken at least 14 days ago, and the positive PCR test result for recovery must have been taken between 28 days and 6 months ago. We will inform you about testing possibilities on site shortly before the fair.

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

Generous additional areas and aisles, pathways, distance markings, information signs and much more will be implemented by us for you. Wherever possible, keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m from other trade fair participants. If it gets too crowded on the stands: use the additional seating 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.

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.

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

You will not be allowed to attend the exhibition 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.
  • Due to a recent entry into Germany, quarantine regulations apply to you.

The overall concept for the safety and health standards at all about automation will be adapted to the respective current specifications and requirements. We actively inform exhibitors and registered visitors about the regulations that apply to the trade fair by e-mail in good time before the trade fair.

SGS, one of the world’s leading inspection, testing and certification companies, will check compliance and certify the safety and hygiene concept during the trade fair.

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.
