H+h Cologne and Covid-19

The 2023 edition of h+h Cologne will be hosted as a face-to-face exhibition between 31.03.2023 and 02.04.2023. The event location will be Messe Cologne in Cologne, Germany. The event venue will have the latest Covid-19 safety measures in place. This will include safeguards such as:

  • The trade show's event space will be expanded to help ensure that participants can uphold the 1.5-meter social distance. This will entail widening hallways or converting them into one-way corridors. The meeting rooms will also be rearranged, with standing spaces being removed. The use of floor markings as a reminder of the social distancing protocol will also be included.
  • The venue will be disinfected hourly to prevent Covid-19 infections. All frequently touched surfaces, such as counters and bannisters, will be thoroughly sanitised as part of the cleaning sessions. Disinfectant dispensers will be placed in areas like the entrances as part of the hygiene protocol. Exhibitors must also have such products on hand at their booths. Also, except for the fire exits, all doors will stay permanently open. A sophisticated air conditioning system will provide a constant supply of external air to the venue.
  • Face masks that cover the mouths and noses will be required for all trade fair attendees. Participants who do not have their own PPE can use one from the provided supplies near the entrances.
  • Attendees will be required to show 3G admission documents before entering the fairgrounds and upon arrival in the country due to the travel restrictions and entry policy. Negative test results, vaccination passports, and proof of recovery are examples.
