Dealing with the Coronavirus

RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE, the demonstration trade fair for waste removal and recycling & road construction and civil engineering, will be the only exhibition in 2021 to combine the construction and recycling industries in a single event. This will enable direct communication between providers, customers and market peers.

At the moment we are firmly planning with RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE as a live event and hope that the community will finally be able to come back together in person to network and compare machinery and equipment live in action. Until then we would like to offer you the greatest possible planning security. Nevertheless, we will prioritise transparency, openness and our common health.

That is why we are providing you with information about our hygiene and safety plan, along with a summary of the most important official regulations. This information is based on the current version of the Regulation for Trade Fairs of the state of Baden-Württemberg from 15 July 2020.

As soon as the dynamic development allows new findings and new specifications from the federal state government are available, we will inform you about them here.

Of course, we are also there for you personally. Get in touch anytime!

Take care of yourself and stay safe!

Your RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE team

Britta Wirtz on the implementation of trade fairs in the current situation

Interview with Britta Wirtz - Current situation and background

General questions and answers

The agreement between the Federal Government and the Länder on 6 May 2020 states that the organisation of trade fairs is the responsibility of the individual Länder. On the basis of the decree on so-called "CoronaVO trade fairs" issued by the Baden-Wuerttemberg state government, trade fairs have been allowed to be organised again since 1 September. The Trade Fairs Ordinance lays down concrete regulations for trade fair planning and implemen-tation.

The currently valid regulations can be implemented for RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021 and integrated into the event concept, so that there are currently firm plans to hold next year's double trade fair. An important pillar of the CoronaVO trade fairs is the preparation of an individual protection and hygiene concept, which will be exam-ined in detail by the responsible authorities.

The health of all exhibitors, visitors, as well as service providers and employees, has top priority in all planning stages as well as in the implementation of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021!

  • Generous layout planning: Extension of the aisle widths in the hall area to 5 metres and in the outdoor area to 8 metres
  • Modified entrance system with separate passage sluices for visitors and exhibitors as well as the use of wing instead of regular revolving drum doors (reduction of contact surfaces)
  • Pre-registration of all participants online: to prevent queues in the entrance area and permanent monitor-ing of the number of people on the exhibition grounds
  • Guidance system with floor markings for active visitor guidance and compliance with the distance regula-tions (the aisles in the outdoor and indoor areas are right-hand traffic, and carpet tiles and aisle markers help to identify the lanes)
  • In forums and conference rooms, the minimum distance between participants is taken into account through generous planning
  • Good ventilation with fresh air supply in the hall area is ensured by modern ventilation systems, which are operated with the highest possible proportion of fresh air and the lowest possible proportion of circulating air. In addition, the room air is increasingly replaced by fresh outside air.
  • Upgrade of permanently installed furniture (counters, information desks) with e.g. plexiglas panels
  • Announcements also in the open air: sound reinforcement via sound technology at the action areas/sample construction sites
  • Illustration of several decentralised gastronomic bases in the open-air areas
  • Additional provision of numerous disinfection options as well as increased cleaning cycles throughout the exhibition grounds (more information under " What cleaning measures are taken?")
  • Trained employees, so-called "Safe-Expo-Guides", ensure during assembly and dismantling as well as during the event that the measures listed in the protection and hygiene concept are observed on site. At the same time, they signal to all those involved that compliance with the rules is taken seriously and are available to answer any questions.

Scenario during pandemic stage 3 (currently valid in Baden-Wuerttemberg)

In the currently applicable pandemic level 3, a mandatory fever measurement in the entrance area is required as an additional measure. This can be guaranteed by appropriately trained staff of the German Red Cross, which is availa-ble to the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre.

The Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre is in constant close contact with the health authorities. Recommendations and in-structions from the authorities are implemented as soon as they are available.

Increased cleaning and disinfection measures and intervals are implemented on the entire grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. This includes:

  • Frequent cleaning cycles: All contact surfaces such as handrails, door handles, elevators incl. operating buttons, ATMs, exhibition management, information counters and checkroom counters are cleaned and disinfected at regular intervals.
  • Waste disposal: Every 30 minutes, the waste containers are checked and emptied if necessary.
  • Hand hygiene: On the entire area covered by ReyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE (hall area and outdoor area), there are sufficient disinfection stands and mobile hand basins.
  • Sanitary facilities: The toilet facilities in the hall areas or the mobile sanitary facilities in the outdoor exhibition area are cleaned frequently (at least every two hours) in accordance with the valid protection and hygiene regulations using sanitary cleaners with surfactants and acids. These areas may only be used simultaneously by the number of persons indicated on the doors. Personnel employed on site are instructed to ensure this.
  • Using the elevator: Elevators may only be used by one person.

These details are dependent on the current pandemic stage of the state of Baden-Württemberg and the associated regulations.

Scenario during pandemic stage 3 (currently valid in Baden-Württemberg)

Persons over the age of six are obliged to wear a non-medical everyday mask or a comparable mouth and nose cover on the entire exhibition grounds.

Scenario during pandemic stage 1 or 2:

If, at the time of the trade fair, the regulations for pandemic stage 1 or 2 take effect, according to the Baden-Württemberg state government, a non-medical everyday mask or a comparable mouth and nose covering must be worn only during the stay in closed rooms of the RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE (hall area or in mobile hall structures such as pavilions or tents in the outdoor exhibition area).

This obligation (regardless of the pandemic level) does not exist:

1. If this is not possible for medical or other compelling reasons.

2. If it is ensured that the minimum distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained at the exhibition stands.

3. When using gastronomic services.

Please note:

Face visors are not an equivalent protection and alternative to a mouth and nose cover!

The distance rules of the general CoronaVO of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg are valid for RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE and must be observed. If there are no suitable physical anti-infection devices available, it is recom-mended that a minimum distance of 1.5 metres to other people be maintained. In order to facilitate compliance with the distance regulations on site, the precautions outlined under the point "What measures does the safety and hygiene concept of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE include?" are taken.

In advance:

  • Provision of clearly structured leaflets of the protection and hygiene instructions to be observed at the exhibition stand for exhibitors and service partners of the exhibitors.
  • Visitors and exhibitors alike can obtain comprehensive information on the websites and under the heading "Dealing with the Coronavirus".
  • Registered visitors will be informed about the rules and regulations again with a separate letter.

On site:

  • On highly visible static surfaces and highly frequented points of contact, footprints, suspensions from the ceiling, mirror stickers, posters as well as building fence banners, covers and warning boards are attached to barrier grids and flags. These are placed on site with a clear visualization and a friendly wording, which clearly indicates the hygiene and distance rules to be observed on site.
  • In addition to the two centrally located trade fair management offices, various information points in the hall area along the visitor walkway towards the outdoor exhibition area and at the highly frequented demonstration building sites and special theme areas will be manned by trained personnel.
  • In addition, part of the entrance management is a so-called "trouble counter". At the main entrance, this will sound out visitors before they enter the RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE and will be put into operation for information and verification purposes. It is also used for the selective, free distribution of disposable masks.
  • The "Safe-Expo-Guides" will be permanently present on the exhibition grounds - for questions and to monitor compliance with safety and security precautions.
  • Digital output stations (including LED wall and digital steles) in the hall area will be supplied with corresponding short videos. In addition, there will be regular information announcements with additional reference to the "Safe-Expo-Guides" in use on site.

According to the CoronaVO trade fairs in Baden-Württemberg, the limitation of the number of persons is based on the space available, so the number of visitors present at the same time is calculated on the basis of the available exhibition space.

For the 92,000 m² exhibition area of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE, applying the legal requirements (1 person per 7 m² of accessible exhibition area), this results in a maximum possible number of visitors of 13,142 per day, whereby persons of the organizer (Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre incl. service providers) and the exhibitors (stand personnel incl. hostesses, service providers of the exhibitors) can be disregarded. The ratio refers only to the number of visitors present on site.

For RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE as a specialized trade fair, the expected number of visitors for the 2021 edition is 3,000 visitors per trade fair day. With 13,142 visitors possible according to CoronaVO trade fairs and 3,000 visitors expected by the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, it is clear that there will be no tension at RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021 with regard to exceeding the maximum number of visitors per day.

In case of a possible tightening of the area and person ratio within the Corona VO trade fairs to 1 visitor per 10 m² of accessible area, there could be 9,200 visitors on the site at the same time. This means that even then, the expected number of visitors for 3 days of the trade fair can easily be represented on one day.

At this point in time we assume with regard to the ticket system of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021 that:

1. Visitor tickets (regularly purchased tickets as well as redeemed guest tickets) will be independent of the day.

2. there will be no visitor time slots.

3. there will be no limit to the number of guest tickets per exhibitor.

The CoronaVO trade fairs does not currently impose any restrictions on individual exhibition areas as long as the minimum distance of 1.5 metres can be maintained. The trade fair management ensures with active guidance that all persons present on the grounds comply with this requirement at all times.

All trade fair participants have already registered in advance via online registration, i.e. using their visitor ticket, exhibitor pass or service partner pass, in order to obtain access authorisation. The registration is a requirement for access to and stay on the exhibition grounds.

  • Visitors can only obtain their tickets in advance and online via the ticket shop of RecyclingAKTIV & Tief-bauLIVE. No tickets can be purchased on site. Each ticket is valid for a specified day of the fair. Season tick-ets with a validity of several days will not be issued. Visitors who wish to visit the trade fair on several days must register individually for each day.
  • Exhibitors will continue to receive exhibitor passes for the entire duration of the trade fair as well as for set-up and dismantling.

The tickets, exhibitor and service partner passes are mobile and allow contactless access.

The recording of all essential personal information upon admission is intended to ensure that any necessary tracking of Category 1 contact persons can be carried out in accordance with the specifications of the Robert Koch Institute. We also recommend using the Corona-Warn-App of the Federal Government.

Please note: Personal data is collected for the purpose of tracing infection chains in connection with the COVID19 pandemic. The data will be stored for four weeks from the date of the event. Afterwards they will be deleted or de-stroyed (does not concern general data processing).

The minimum distance of 1.5 meters also applies in the outdoor demo areas of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE (demonstration building sites, special theme areas and the attachments arena). The following measures will prevent people from accumulating at frequented trade fair attractions:

  • Generously dimensioned areas around the demonstration building sites and special theme areas located in the outdoor exhibition area.
  • In the areas of the demonstration building sites and special theme areas: Use of floor markings and barrier grids to mark "standing areas". Selective construction of grandstands with seating requirements.
  • Information and warning boards mounted on the barrier grids are supplemented by announcements over the respective sound systems.
  • Shortly before and during the presentation times of the respective demo formats: personnel increase of the "Safe-Expo-Guides".
  • If necessary, a mask requirement will be introduced in the demo areas.

Even if the distance regulations are adhered to, there will still be enough seats for spectators to offer the demo formats and the exhibits presented there an appropriate visitor frequency.

The catering areas of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE are managed by the contract partner of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, Gauls Catering GmbH & Co. KG. The arrangement of the gastronomic offer is regulated within the framework of the so-called "Gastronomic Guide", which has been drawn up taking into account the CoronaVO of the State of Baden-Württemberg, the CoronaVO trade fairs as well as the occupational health and safety standards for the catering industry and will be adjusted accordingly in the case of updates.

Overview of the design of the catering services at RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021:

  • Use of several decentralized catering areas in the outdoor exhibition area (only commissioning of a coffee corner in the hall area).
  • Use of "Plug-and-Cook-Containers" for safe food distribution and as a natural "barrier" between service personnel and customer.
  • Food is served exclusively by service personnel (no self-service counters), main courses are prepared and served directly to the guest or offered in small closed units. Open containers and haptic elements such as salt and pepper shakers are avoided as far as possible.
  • The service personnel wear face masks and gloves throughout (also in the production facilities).
  • The Gauls Catering GmbH & Co. KG also works according to the principles of the "HACCP system", which specifically addresses possible hazards and their solution processes when handling food. The implementation of and adherence to the HACCP system must be documented and presented at inspections by the health authorities.
  • In the catering areas, an active guidance system is used analogous to the overall exhibition area, as well as the distancing through predetermined waiting areas.
  • It is not necessary to wear a mask when consuming food or when sitting at tables in these areas. If a person is not at the table in the guest area, for example on the way to the table, to the toilet or to the serving unit, a mask must be worn.
  • In the catering units there is an obligation to register (e.g. via a QR code on the table).

If the "Exhibitors' Evening" planned for the Friday of the trade fair takes place, Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre will examine at short notice on the basis of the current legal basis whether the event is reasonable and will then either adapt the concept to the requirements applicable at the time of the event or possibly cancel it.

The first-aid service is always present at events organized by Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre - from the set-up to the entire duration of the trade fair to the dismantling. The first-aid station is located at the main entrance West.

Paramedics treat medical emergencies directly on site. If necessary, they are supported by the public ambulance service. In addition, a hygiene officer is on site.

When arriving and departing by public transport, the applicable rules of local public transport apply: In Germany, masks are currently obligatory in vehicles and at bus stops.

For those arriving by car, the fairground has a parking concept with sufficient parking spaces.

Questions and answers for visitors

Every visitor must register via the Online Ticket Shop before the event. Either as part of the ticket purchase or by redeeming an existing guest or honor ticket. Tickets cannot be purchased on site. With the online registration (ticket purchase or redemption code) a full registration is made: This means that the essential personal data must be provided so that contact tracking is possible.

Thanks to the entrance control system, information is always available on how many people are on the exhibition grounds. This creates the basis for maintaining a minimum distance of 1.5 meters and ensures that contacts can be tracked.

We also recommend to use the Corona-Warn-App of the German government.

Please note: Personal data is collected for the purpose of tracking infection chains in connection with the COVID19 pandemic. The data will be stored for four weeks from the date of the event. Afterwards they will be deleted or destroyed (does not concern the general data processing).

We will inform all our channels as soon as the Online Ticket Shop is available.

Currently, no digital formats are planned within the framework of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE.

We ask all visitors and exhibitors to follow the following hygiene and safety standards:

  • Please do not shake hands.
  • Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly.
  • Please keep at least 1.5 m distance.
  • Please wear a mask.
  • Please sneeze/cough into the crook of your arm.
  • Avoid contact of hands with eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Observe guidance systems and floor markings.
  • Avoid large crowds of people.

Questions and answers for exhibitors

There are no special requirements for the stand design. In principle, it must be ensured that all persons on the stand are given the opportunity to maintain the minimum distance of 1.5 metres to other persons. The exhibitor is also responsible for ensuring that the applicable hygiene and behaviour measures are implemented and adhered to on the own stand area.

The AUMA recommendations for action for exhibitors regarding structural aspects of the exhibition stand as well as portable buildings such as mobile pavilions and tent structures in outdoor exhibition areas correspond to the basic requirements of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre for stand construction concepts:

  • Planning of the exhibition stand including the visitor guidance, so that a minimum distance of 1.5 metres between people can be maintained.
  • Guaranteed ventilation of the exhibition stand through the most open construction possible.
  • In the case of two-storey exhibition stands (including those in the form of containers or vehicles in the open-air exhibition area), the basement must be designed to be as open as possible in order to ensure sufficient air exchange.
  • Internal circulation areas and stairs (platforms, two-storey stands, etc.) must be designed in such a way that visitors and staff can maintain the minimum distance as far as possible.
  • Meeting and recreation rooms should also be sufficiently large with open ceilings so that the minimum dis-tance can be maintained and sufficient air exchange can be guaranteed. It is advisable to demarcate areas of the stand that are to be used for longer customer discussions, to define an individual total number of permitted persons in advance and to regulate this by means of a regulated entrance. Seating groups should be planned in such a way that the minimum distance can be maintained here as well.
  • For product presentations and show/action areas, extensive areas are to be provided for spectators on the respective stand area. An adequately dimensioned spectator area should ensure that the traffic routes on the main and side aisles are kept clear.
  • Physical contact points such as counters, tables and door handles should be planned as sparingly as possible and the use of smooth, easy-to-clean surfaces should be taken into account.
  • Use of hygienic protective walls, e.g. at information counters, if the minimum distance of 1.5 metres can-not be maintained.
  • Conference areas should be planned with sufficient dimensions and open ceilings to ensure sufficient air exchange.
  • Generous dimensioning of tables and seating so that the applicable minimum distance can be maintained, as well as reduction of the distances between tables and seat backs if screens such as partitions are used between the tables.
  • Sufficient disinfectant must be kept available at the stand for the exhibitor's employees and service provid-ers. Furthermore, it is recommended that visitors also have the opportunity to disinfect their hands, e.g. by means of disinfectant dispensers (bookable via the Online Service Centre of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE).

The exhibitor service will be happy to advise you.

According to CoronaVO trade fairs, there is no legal basis for specifying this. AUMA's recommendation for action states that physical contact points at the exhibition stand, such as counters, tables and door handles, should be planned as sparingly as possible and that the use of surfaces which are easy to wipe should be planned.

In order to ensure regulated access to the stand and to support visitor guidance on the stand area, markings can be used in the direction of movement. In addition, it can be ensured that the minimum distance of 1.5 metres is main-tained at all times on the stand area. General aisles may not be used as waiting areas.

Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre will equip the general, permanently installed trade fair furniture such as information counters and counters with Plexiglas panels.

No, this is not necessary. The basis for the protection of all persons involved in the trade fair is the hygiene and prevention concept of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.

There is no need to calculate a maximum permitted number of persons at a stand area, as the general rules of distance and hygiene must be guaranteed. The "7:1" rule as a requirement for a maximum number of visitors permitted per day must be considered for the entire trade fair area and does not apply to the exhibition stand. Likewise, no fixed seating and standing room regulations must be observed at an exhibition stand. A separate access restriction (e.g. entrance or exit concept) is also not necessary.

However, the safety distance of at least 1.5 meters must be maintained and thus sufficient space must be provided for all persons on the stand to comply with the distance regulation. In case of non-compliance at the trade fair stand, e.g. during a sales talk that lasts longer than 15 minutes, the persons present must register (see also the point "How is a visitor contact at the exhibition stand recorded?").

During their stay on the entire grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, persons over the age of six must wear a non-medical everyday mask or a comparable mouth and nose cover. There is no obligation if this is unacceptable for medical or other compelling reasons, or when using catering services.

Exhibitors are responsible for compliance with official regulations and the applicable technical guidelines on the stand area and the related activities of stand personnel. When training staff, it is important to ensure that they are fully informed about the hygiene guidelines (minimum distance, mouth and nose protection, regular hand washing, no physical contact...).

Visitors who initially only want to look around the stand do not need to be registered separately. All they have to do is register for the trade fair by purchasing an online ticket or redeeming a guest card.

Please note:

As soon as direct communication takes place at the exhibition stand

  • WITHOUT mouth-nose cover takes place,
  • at which the minimum distance of 1.5 meters is not reached
  • or it lasts longer than 15 minutes

the contact data and the presence of the contact person at the stand must be recorded separately by the exhibitor. It is sufficient here if one of the circumstances already applies.

This can be done either with a digital recording tool such as a QR code, which the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre is happy to provide, or manually, e.g. by means of a list or business card. An overview of the various recording options is available to exhibitors in the Online Service Center (OSC) at an early stage.

The storage period of 4 weeks must be guaranteed and the attendance lists must be made available to the public health department on request. Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre reserves the right to make selective inspections of the attendance lists in order to comply with its duty of care as organizer and operator.

Depending on the regulations applicable at the time of the trade fair, it may be necessary for visitors to register on the day of the trade fair.

All employees and service providers must be recorded by name by the exhibitor on a daily basis (including during assembly and dismantling). To ensure the traceability of possible chains of infection, it is currently still absolutely necessary to record the first and last name, address, date and period of presence as well as telephone number, re-gardless of set-up and dismantling times and the time of the event.

The retention period of 4 weeks must be guaranteed and the attendance lists must be made available to the public health department on request. Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre reserves the right to carry out random checks of attend-ance lists in order to comply with its duty of care as organiser and operator. A sample of an attendance list will be available for download in the Online Service Center (OSC) in good time.

Catering at the exhibition stand is permitted. It is also permitted to provide catering at the stand itself. The regu-lations for catering apply to all forms of catering. Further information can be found under the point "What rules apply to gastronomic offers on the premises?“

In principle the following applies:

  • A minimum distance of 1.5 metres must be maintained.
  • It is recommended that food is only handed out in packaged form; portioned packaging is also required for sugar, salt, pepper, sauces, etc.
  • Open food and drinks may only be served by stand personnel (no self-service).
  • If staff members serve food or beverages at the stand, they should be instructed to observe the infection protection measures and receive appropriate training (distance regulation, avoidance of direct contact, additional cleaning intervals, etc.).
  • Please use either packed disposable cutlery or machine-washed reusable cutlery.
  • If stand catering is offered, the exhibitor must record the contact details and the presence of the contact persons present at the stand separately.

When planning a catering area with unpackaged food, we strongly recommend that a professional caterer be hired. This caterer must comply with all hygiene regulations. Here you can, for example, make direct contact with the con-tractual partner of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, Gauls Catering GmbH & Co. KG, for advice and / or a quotation:

Gauls Catering GmbH & Co. KG | Contact person: Michael Kahl

Phone: +49 6131 906880


Counters, tables and also (machine) exhibits used on the stand should be disinfected regularly and at short intervals during the trade fair. It is also recommended that disinfection stands be placed all around the exhibits. In seat-ing areas and at tables reserved for the consumption of food and beverages, disinfectant wiping should be carried out after every guest change. In addition, a daily basic disinfection should be carried out before the start of the fair or after the fair has ended.

In the case of product demonstrations in front of groups, care must be taken to ensure that it is possible for visitors to maintain the distances. For demonstrations at the stand, the implementation of the outlined construction measures are recommended and Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre provides a service offer that can be booked accordingly.

It is recommended to use more digital offers instead of flyers and brochures. If possible, haptic advertising materials should be distributed by stand personnel from brochure stands that are not open to the public. Basically, care should be taken to ensure that brochures and give-aways cannot be touched by more than one person. The distribu-tion or receipt of brochures and give-aways should therefore be as direct as possible. If this is only possible under certain circumstances, hands should be disinfected before or after viewing the article.

Disinfectant dispensers are placed at all essential points in the exhibition area. In addition to this, the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre recommends that hand disinfectants should also be available at the exhibitors' stands - especially in the entrance area of the stand - in order to enable safe hand hygiene for all those involved.

From March 2021, exhibitors will be able to use the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre Online Service Center to book not only disinfectant dispensers and Plexiglas letters but also the service of a daily stand disinfection.

The frequency of the cleaning intervals does not apply to the exhibitor and is therefore not carried out by Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre on the stand areas. Accordingly, regular disinfection of the exhibition stands and the surfaces, storage surfaces, tables and demonstration products is recommended at the exhibitor's discretion and depending on the number of visitors.

Furthermore, a contact person at the stand should be appointed as the person responsible for the observance of hygiene measures and should be permanently available as a contact person for the exhibition management.

From March 2021, exhibitors can use the Online Service Center of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre to book not only disinfectant dispensers and Plexiglas letters, but also the service of a daily stand disinfection.

The general regulations of the CoronaVO Baden-Wuerttemberg also apply as a supplement to the technical guide-lines during the construction and dismantling phases. In concrete terms, the following points must be observed:

  • As far as possible, a minimum distance of 1.5 metres must be maintained between people during all work.
  • Irrespective of this, a mouth-and-nose cover must also be worn during assembly and dismantling.
  • Form small, fixed teams both during the activity and when travelling in vehicles, as well as during breaks.
  • Exhibitors and their contracted service providers are also obliged to keep separate daily records of their staff during assembly and dismantling.
  • All employees must be informed about SARS-CoV-2 occupational safety standards. It must be ensured that all employees have understood the instructions. This applies in particular to the distance and hygiene rules.

The invoice for the stand rent and ancillary costs (marketing package, service fee, AUMA fee) will be issued after receipt of the stand confirmation and information on the final placement, but not before April 2021 and is payable in full after the invoice has been issued. Any additional services used (stand construction, furniture, etc.) will be in-voiced approx. 2 weeks after the event.

Registration for RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021 is initially free of charge. With the official admission to the trade fair, a legally valid contract is concluded between the exhibitor and Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. Participation can be cancelled free of charge up to two weeks after receipt of the official admission.

In general: If participation in RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021 is to be cancelled independently of an official cancellation of the trade fair, the full cost of the "stand rental" will be charged in accordance with the "Special Conditions of Participation" from two weeks after admission.

COVID-19 will be with us for longer. Nobody knows for sure what the next few months will bring. As the organizer, we are preparing for different scenarios, taking into account all applicable requirements, in order to be able to safely carry out RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2021.

If, contrary to expectations, we as the organizer have to cancel the fair due to official orders or unworkable requirements, Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre has already proven its partnership-based solutions several times in the past. It is possible to have the existing exhibitor registration rewritten to a new date. Alternatively, it is possible to withdraw from the contract concluded with Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.

No matter how: Together with you we will find a solution!


In cooperation and close coordination with the responsible regulatory authorities, we have developed protection and safety concepts that are applied at all events. This is what our SAFE EXPO seal stands for.

Especially now, in times of immense economic challenges, it is important for us to move even closer together with you. Once again, this shows that we are at your side as a reliable and flexible partner.
