As part of our Covid security measures, we offer exhibiting companies, visitors, service providers and media digital tickets only. You can obtain these in the ticket shop of the respective trade fair. You will receive a separate digital day ticket in the form of a QR-code for each day of the trade fair. You will need the trade fair app for the respective event to display the QR-code on your smartphone.
In addition to your digital ticket, you will also need verified proof that you have been fully vaccinated, recovered for at least 28 days and no longer than 90 days, or are currently tested (within the past 24 hours for antigen tests and 48 hours for PCR tests) in order to gain access to the trade fair grounds.
The EU Digital Covid Certificate (EU-DCC) serves as proof. It contains a QR-code that you can save on your smartphone using various apps that differ for each country. The apps in Germany, for example, are CovPass and Corona-Warn-App. Proof of an EU DCC (Digital Covid Certificate) can be linked directly to the trade fair ticket; this will accelerate access control at the entrance to the trade fair: Click here for further information.
