Exhibitor guidelines – exhibit safely

Each stand needs to provide a safe setting so personal meetings can be conducted in adherence to social distancing and hygiene rules. We will be supporting our exhibitors with advice, guidelines and appropriate offers.
Please make sure you follow the following points:

Stand design

To run the fair safely social distancing rules will be required: please ensure that a minimum personal distance of 1.5m will be observed at your stand at all times. We therefore recommend you plan your stand space generously and avoid too many structural elements that could stand in the way. You can find a summary of important aspects on stand construction here:


Business contacts

In order to protect the health of all participants, the minimum distance of 1.5 metres should also be observed during business meetings. Please also remember that physical contact and handshaking should be avoided.



Hand disinfectant must be supplied at each stand. Surfaces must be cleaned regularly / after each business meeting.


Stand visitors

Exhibitors need to monitor the number of people at their stand to ensure social distancing rules are observed. For larger stands we recommend clearly marked entrances/exits as well as markings for directions of traffic flow within the stand.


Hygiene concept

A separate hygiene concept shall be prepared for each stand, and a contact person must be appointed for hygiene-related issues. Frankfurter Buchmesse will provide all exhibitors in advance with a detailed handout containing tips and an example checklist.
