Corona guidelines for exhibitors

FAQ – Protection & Hygiene Concept


Dear Exhibitors,

In times like these, many things are not as they normally are. Even our SPECIAL EDITION of INTERBOOT didn't have much in common with previous iterations of this water sports exhibition, which has been Mecca for water sports enthusiasts in southern Germany for almost six decades.

Nevertheless, together with our exhibitors and partners, we created an enormous water sports shopping center in strict compliance with the state of Baden-Württemberg’s COVID-19 ordinance, which is currently in effect. This allowed all our visitors to feel as safe as possible while being afforded the first opportunity in a long time to get a thorough, hands-on impression of the objects of their desire.

Quick Points for exhibitors - which made your participation at INTERBOOT 2020 safe!

Our floorspace allocation concept, as well as the layout of the halls, will be adapted to the current circumstances and to the number of bookings we receive. The aisles will be widened, the overall layout will be more spacious, and waiting areas will be added.

In enclosed rooms, all persons 6 years of age or older must wear a mouth-and-nose covering at all times.
Mouth-and-nose coverings are not mandatory:

  • 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,
  • 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.

Everyone must bring his or her own mouth-and-nose covering, as they will only be available for purchase in exceptional cases.

Maintaining a minimum distance of 1.5 meters (ca. 5 feet) from other persons is mandatory.

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.

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.

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 7 sq m (ca. 75 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 our Special Edition of 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 current circumstances and is complying with the COVID-19 ordinance (Corona-Verordnung), which has been in effect since July 1, 2020.

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