Hygiene concept for European Coatings Show
Status as of 29 July 2020
ECS 2021 - innovative, contemporary and safe!
As a globally competent exhibition organiser, we have developed a comprehensive, reliable and practical concept. Our bundle of measures takes the government requirements as a starting point and implements them intelligently. At the same time, we provide targeted and effective support to ALL exhibition participants - visitors and exhibitors, stand planners and teams, day and multi-day guests, service providers and partners - in their efforts. We don't leave you alone with "Corona", but offer an all-round service. Together we will prepare a timely, successful and safe European Coatings Show 2021!
The following points reflect the current state of knowledge.
Depending on the course of the corona pandemic, individual points may of course change (also for the better).
Safety guidance for exhibitors
Please also note the current status of the European Coatings Show hygiene concept. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions - we are here for you!
The stand design must take the necessities of social distancing into account. This includes, for example, routing and avoiding bottlenecks. It is recommended that separate waiting areas are created. In the case of active presentation of exhibits or product demonstrations, we recommend that you pay special attention to appropriate precautions (e.g. minimum distance from people, hygiene measures at the exhibit, allocation of time slots for presentations).
In principle, all measures can also be implemented on smaller stands. Should you have any questions in this regard, your contact person in the event team will be happy to help you.
We have already learnt in everyday life how to maintain the minimum distance of 1.50 m. Intelligent visitor guidance ensures that this is also the case at the respective exhibition stands. Compliance with the distance regulations can be ensured, for example, by floor markings, room dividers or traffic light systems.
We recommend a minimum width of 2.00 m for aisles on the stands to ensure safe passage.
The well-known regulations for restaurants in Germany, which naturally also apply to the European Coatings Show, allow catering to be provided at the stand. In the case of catering, the applicable regulations for social distancing and the additional official requirements must be taken into account.
As during the trade fair, set-up and dismantling are subject to mandatory registration. All persons entering the grounds are registered electronically. We regulate the number of persons in the halls and in the loading yards.
Here too, of course, the known measures regarding distance and hygiene must be observed.
Distance and hygiene also applies to meetings. We recommend a maximum meeting size of eight people.
For stand construction, the use of smooth, easy-to-clean surfaces is recommended. For furniture, for example, chairs without armrests reduce physical contacts.
In sensitive areas such as reception or catering, where the number of contacts poses a particularly high risk of infection, we recommend additional security measures such as partitions known from the retail trade (e.g. made of acrylic glass).
It is recommended to clean and disinfect door handles, handrails and frequently used surfaces on the stand at increased intervals. Please provide appropriate disinfection facilities for your customers and employees at your stand.
We recommend cleaning and disinfecting door handles, handrails and frequently used surfaces regularly (several times an hour).
Process tracking at the exhibition stand
Our exhibitors are required to separately record the contact information of conversation partners (for conversations without face covering). NürnbergMesse is providing exhibitors with LeadSuccess, a lead tracking system, for this purpose.
Evening events and stand parties
Until further notice, stand parties will not permitted during the trade fair, as the required social distancing guidelines cannot be enforced. The same applies to parties and exhibitor evenings at NürnbergMesse.
The general FAQs for the event can be found here.
