Hygiene Concept at the tcworld conference

Disinfectant dispensers on the premises   
Hand disinfectants will be available at all entrances, in the foyer and in the sanitary rooms.  

Disinfection of contact surfaces   
Frequently used areas and contact surfaces in particular, as well as sanitary facilities, will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.  

Ventilation and air exchange rate   
An above-average air exchange rate as well as ventilation with the highest possible proportion of fresh air is guaranteed on the grounds of Messe Stuttgart at all times. This allows a close-meshed air exchange in the trade fair halls. The trade fair halls are ventilated with increased outside air volume to ensure a continuous supply of fresh air. The entire building/halls and all conference rooms are continuously supplied with fresh air.  

Observing distance and hygiene rules has become a matter of course for all of us.  

During the tcworld conference and tekom fair, we would also ask you to consider the following recommendations. Your commitment counts, too. Help us ensure that you and everyone else feels comfortable and stays healthy during a visit with us.  

Keep your distance   
Where possible, keep your distance from other people and avoid crowding situations.  

Mouth-and-nose protection   
Whenever crowding situations cannot be consistently avoided, we recommend wearing a mouth-and-nose mask indoors. You will protect yourself and others.  

Personal hygiene   
Sneeze or cough into the crook of your arm and away from others. Please avoid shaking hands and other physical contact. Wash hands regularly and thoroughly. Use hand sanitizer as needed.  

Stay home if you are ill   
With symptoms of illness that could indicate a COVID-19 infection, please refrain from attending the tcworld conference. In the event of illness, the ticket can be canceled free of charge with proof of illness. For this purpose, the illness must be proven immediately by submitting a medical certificate; the above cancellation conditions otherwise apply.  

Precaution through tests and vaccination   
With precautionary and regular self-testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, you minimize the risk for yourself and others. The same applies to coronavirus vaccination.
