Major Interview on the Hygiene and Infection Control Concept

Controlling status of visitors
At last, A+A is back! And on site in Düsseldorf. Messe Düsseldorf's hygiene and infection control concept makes it possible. Recovered, vaccinated or tested checks, high-performance ventilation systems and spacious design of exhibition halls, distance markings and many other measures all ensure the event can go ahead. As a result, over 1,000 exhibitors will once again be able to meet many visitors from Germany and Europe at Düsseldorf Exhibition Center from October 26 to 29, 2021. Markus Leuker, Head of the Safety and Occupational Health Department at Messe Düsseldorf, explains how the concept works, in conversation with Birgit Horn, A+A Project Director.

PROTaction - Back to Business
Count on Us. How our Trade Fairs work in the Age of Corona virus:

PROTaction – Back to business – keeping safe together

To make you feel completely at home at A+A Messe Düsseldorf has developed officially coordinated hygiene and infection protection standards for all visitors, exhibitors and members of staff – keeping safe together.

Even if you need disinfectant dispensers and/or air purifiers - you will find the right items for your exhibition stand here:

Admission Vouchers with Codes

If you’d like to encourage customers and other interested parties to come to a decision, we suggest that you use our voucher codes and invite them to visit you at your trade fair stand. Wondering how it works? It’s very simple actually. You send them a digital voucher, and the recipient then picks up their e-ticket online, using the code. All they need to do is print out the ticket. It also serves as a public transport ticket for buses, trains and trams on the local transport network VRR.

PLEASE NOTE and inform your customers about the following changes:

• Admission vouchers can only be redeemed in the A+A online ticket shop. An on-site redemption will not be possible.

• Redeemed admission vouchers are 1-day tickets for a specific date and thus only valid on the day booked by the customer.

• Only a limited number of tickets is available per day.

Go for high-performance & safe access: book your wireless Internet access direct, only from Messe Düsseldorf. There is only one official WiFi supplier – our partner Deutsche Telekom. The new “Business-HOTSPOT” products offer you all possibilities. Please note: operating your own Access Points / WiFi routers at the Exhibition Centre is not permitted. Installation of this kind by exhibitors or third parties is not authorised by Messe Düsseldorf.
Optimum performance, of course, depends on your terminal. So make sure you get 5Ghz WiFi support when you purchase your device! For more information also watch our brief Video.

Forwarding Services & Container

Please remember that it is not allowed to operate your own cranes or fork lifts at the exhibition centre. Forklifts, containers and other heavy equipment can be ordered from a trade fair exporter and should be reserved as early as possible to secure loading appointments and prevent long wait times.

Waste / Disposal

Waste disposal
It not only saves time – it also simplifies your pre-sorting: allow the experts to take care of your waste disposal. At the beginning of the trade fair, you will receive wastebasket liner sets in different colours that support effective waste separation. The service partners pick up your recyclables at least twice a day and every day after the trade fair closes. Order by 22 September.

Fraud Alert!

Fake stamp
We are currently seeing an increasing number of fake invoices being sent out to exhibitors. These invoices aim to give the impression of being connected with your trade fair participation and use the logos and trademarks of Messe Düsseldorf and/or its partners for this purpose.

Please only pay invoices that you can clearly attribute to an order you have placed with Messe Düsseldorf or our partners (customer number) and compare bank details with the accounts of Messe Düsseldorf (www.messe-duesseldorf.de).
