Safe & Secure at CWIEME Berlin

Connecting our community safely

Your health, safety and comfort has been, and continues to be, our number one priority. As our industry moves forward, we are dedicated to delivering events and facilitating trade with health and safety at the top of the agenda.  

If you are an exhibitor, please log into our exhibitor portal CWIEME World to access our extended guide with information on build-up, break-down & stand design.

Before the event


Awareness & Communication

  • The venue website, social media and emails will supply you with up to date information regarding guidelines in place at the show.
  • Please check your government advice for guidance on domestic or international travel before you start your journey.
  • Using the floor plan, exhibitor list and matchmaking app, plan your time at the event and try to book meetings in advance.
  • Please ensure you register and print your badge before attending the event – this is crucial, as we have implemented a reduced-contact registration system so there will be very limited opportunity to do this onsite.
  • You or your staff should not attend the event if you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms.

At the event


Cleaning and Personal Hygiene

  • Hand sanitiser stations are available across the venue and especially in high traffic areas. However, we advise that exhibitors and visitors carry their own as a measure of additional safety to avoid crowding around sanitiser stations.
  • In accordance with current regulations in Germany, it is compulsory to wear face masks within German exhibition and conference venues, this is upon entry to Messe Berlin.
  • We have asked exhibitors to ensure a deeper clean before, during and after the show opens each day; paying particular attention to high traffic touchpoints and consider visible cleaning logs.
  • Along with Messe Berlin, we are conducting a thorough, enhanced, cleaning regime of all public areas and features prior to show opening and during show open periods.


Social Distancing

  • We are trying to make all gangways 4m wide with two-way systems. There may be some gangways with one-way systems where this is not possible. Please follow the signage and be aware of those around you.
  • When walking around the event, we ask you to please keep to the left of any gangway to minimise paths crossing.
  • We are implementing a no handshake policy. Please refrain from this or sharing business cards with one another.  
  • Exhibitors are encouraged to used data capture devices to ensure contact-free sharing of business details.
  • Try to minimise touching products where possible. If it is important to touch and feel products, please ask the exhibiting stand for gloves or cleaning protocol should you feel more comfortable with this.
  • Social distancing measures should be followed for any meetings, product demonstrations, entertainment or stand hospitality events.
  • We have asked exhibitors to remove giveaways and consider sending brochures electronically.
  • Consider arranging meetings in advance at less busy times. A well timed and spread out schedule should include enhanced protective measures for meetings over 15 minutes.

  • For stand catering and hospitality please liaise directly with the venue for options and ordering.
