Protection and Hygiene Concept of Messe Friedrichshafen

Latest news: Trade fairs allowed again in Baden-Württemberg


Dear exhibitors:

The new Coronavirus Ordinance of the State of Baden-Württemberg of 28 June allows trade fairs, exhibitions, concerts and events to take place again in general, irrespective of the trend in local case numbers. The Ordinance stipulates stages of opening spread over time. In Level 3, trade fairs and exhibitions will be allowed with a limitation on entrance.

Pursuant to this Ordinance we have revised our existing Protection and Hygiene Concept to reflect the new regulations. You can download the new version, which applies to you, here:

Protection & Hygiene Concept of Messe Friedrichshafen

Any later amendments will be incorporated without delay. Therefore please check from time to time to see whether you still have the current version of our Protection and Hygiene Concept.

Please also follow the current Coronavirus Ordinance of the State of Baden-Württemberg. You will find the up-to-date version in force here:

The new Ordinance stipulates that in general only fully vaccinated persons, former patients who have fully recovered, and persons with a current quick test can enter the Fair & Exhibition Centre.

We are looking forward wholeheartedly to greeting you soon again live at INTERBOOT, face to face.


Persons who are in contact with a person infected with the Coronavirus, or have been in contact with a person infected with the coronavirus within the past 14 days, or who present the typical symptoms of a Coronavirus infection are not allowed to enter the exhibition grounds.

In enclosed rooms, all persons 6 years of age or older must wear a medical mask at all times.
Medical masks are not mandatory:

  • for children under six years 
  • at each of the stands, provided that the exhibitor has ensured that the minimum distance of 1.5 meters (ca. 5 feet) between persons can be maintained at all times.
  • in seating areas, provided that measures have been taken to ensure that the minimum distance of 1.5 meters between persons can be maintained at all times.
  • in the open air if the minimum distance of 1.5 meters between persons can be maintained at all times.
  • for employees, provided that they are working at a location where no visitors are present.
  • when availing oneself of gastronomical services (i.e. when eating and drinking).
  • when other equipment that provides equal or greater protection to other persons is present.
  • for persons for wearing a medical mask is not possible for medical reasons or cannot be reasonably required (doctor’s certificate required) In such cases a large coronavirus protection visor (chin visor not sufficient) must be worn

Everyone must bring his or her own medical mask, as they will only be available for purchase in exceptional cases.

Exhibitor passes will be issued by means of voucher codes. When registering online, each member of your team must enter his or her voucher code to obtain an exhibitor pass, and will thereby be registered. The exhibitor passes, each of which is registered, will then be scanned on site for access/entry.

Everyone must be fully registered to enter the exhibition grounds during these phases, as well. Exhibitor passes are required during stand construction and dismantling. Special construction and dismantling passes can be ordered from the project team to register persons without an exhibitor pass (e.g. exhibition builders, etc.).

The concept for your stand must be adapted to the rules concerning social distancing and hygiene.
See our hygiene policy (point 6).

Yes. Guest tickets will be issued by means of a voucher code, which the visitor/customer can use to obtain a ticket in our online ticket shop.

The minimum 1.5-meter distance between persons must be ensured. In circumstances where maintaining this distance is impossible, suitable structural measures (e.g. a breath droplet shield) must be implemented. In planning your stand, please allow for 10 sq m (ca. 107 sq ft) per person.

Our modern ventilation system continuously ventilates the entrance areas, the exhibition halls, the conference rooms and the catering areas, and supplies the freshest air possible of outdoor-air quality.

In the event that INTERBOOT cannot take place, we will naturally refund any payments already made for the rental of your stand space. Any compensation claims for damages shall be rejected.

Our catering facilities on the exhibition grounds will be open. Messe Friedrichshafen's gastronomy and catering partner has adapted its food services concepts to the circumstances and is complying with the current COVID-19 ordinance (Corona-Verordnung).

Brochures and other printed materials may still be displayed and distributed at your stand.
