Domotex Germany Releases Detail of & Safety Procedures for 2021 Show
Hannover, DE, July 16, 2020-Domotex released detail about the 2021 event, which will take place January 15 to 18 in Hannover, Germany.
Sonia Wedell-Castellano, global director of Domotex, reports that the current rental status is running at around 60,000 square meters, which is about two thirds of the total space that is normally occupied at Domotex. “Those areas are still subject to some uncertainty due to the coronavirus situation. Some companies are essentially still in ‘waiting mode,’ and have not yet finalized their plans. In addition, as we are dealing with an odd- numbered year, there is a strong competitor event also taking place, which has an impact on Domotex.”
Regarding social distancing and safety procedures for COVID, the show reports that it has the ability to “position our exhibitors with enough space between them, making it possible to widen the aisles. The exhibitors themselves need to ensure that their stands comply with the stricter hygiene standards – similar to the rules everyone is familiar with for retail shops and cafés. This includes the maintenance of minimum distances and, if necessary, the wearing of mouth and nose protection. Exhibitors also need to record the visitors to their stands, so that these people can be contacted as necessary.”
In addition, it is “introducing guidance systems to make it easier for visitors to maintain their distance from each other without slowing down foot traffic in the aisles. In addition, we will make sure there is good ventilation of the entrance gates, halls and conference rooms and frequent cleaning and disinfection. Otherwise, the same rules as everywhere else will apply: Visitors need to maintain a distance of 1.50 meters and, as appropriate, wear mouth and nose protection. In addition, everyone will need to supply their personal details when registering, so that infection paths can be traced if there is a need to. Our catering will also comply with all the relevant legal requirements. And as is to be expected, we will be in close communication with the responsible health authorities and provide medical services at the exhibition center around the clock.”
