The Westfalenhallen group of companies fulfils all relevant requirements for safe trade fair and event participation in corona times. Our facility-related hygiene concept applies to all events at Messe Dortmund and the Westfalenhalle Dortmund and has been approved accordingly by the responsible lower health authority. It consistently implements the previously valid measures, the latest standards and the new rules that have come into force for trade fairs, congresses and conferences from 01 October 2021.

The Westfalenhallen Group of Companies conducts all trade fairs, events and concerts only on the basis of approved, facility-related hygiene concepts that enable visitors to stay safely.

These include, for example, disinfection dispensers, regular cleaning to protect against infection, maximum ventilation in air exchange mode and visible information and notice boards on the Corona measures.

In principle, our trade fairs, events and concerts may only be attended by immunized or tested persons. Depending on the event, we distinguish between two different hygiene concepts. We will inform you which hygiene concept is applied to the event you are attending on the respective event websites and when you purchase your ticket.

1. fairs, events and concerts with immunized and tested visitors

Visitors and all other attendees are required to wear a medical face mask (surgical mask or FFP2 mask).

The mask may be removed at fixed seating or standing locations (food service, lecture halls, concerts, trade show booths, etc.) and for the consumption of food and beverages even if the minimum distances are not observed.

Please bring your proof of vaccination or recovery or a proof of test (negative rapid test or PCR test from an official or accredited body, which must not be older than 48 hours) as well as your proof of identity.

2. fairs, events and concerts with immunized and PCR-tested visitors

Since all persons in attendance are immunized or have presented a PCR test, you may remove your mask as soon as you have completed 3G testing in the entrance area and are not required to maintain minimum distances.

Please bring your proof of immunization or recovery or proof of testing (PCR test from an official or accredited body, not older than 48 hours) and proof of identity.
