h+h Cologne is moving to new exhibition halls

When h+h cologne opens its doors in March 2021, a leading global trade fair spanning a larger area, in new halls and with a well-thought out and extensive safety concept awaits the trade visitors. The international trade fair for creative handicraft & hobby supplies is namely relocating to Halls 11.1, 11.2 and 11.3 next year. Where the extensive safety and hygiene measures can be conducted efficiently and implemented as easily as possible for both the companies and trade visitors. Exhibitors and visitors will thus be able to feel totally safe at h+h cologne and will simply be able to concentrate on their business. The Corona-related relocation to Hall 11 is indeed a stroke of luck for h+h cologne: It offers more stand areas of the same quality per hall level and thus the companies more flexibility when planning their stands. Furthermore, the hall is directly connected to the highly frequented East Entrance of the fair grounds.

If the new presentation surface goes down well with the exhibitors, the trade fair intends to use Hall 11 for future events as well. #B-SAFE4business But of course the safety of all trade fair participants is of course the top priority for the organisers. That is why Koelnmesse has developed a package of measures under the hashtag #B-SAFE4business, which ensures that attending the trade fair is safe for all participants.

h+h cologne has summarised its measures for the protection of exhibitors and trade visitors under the four headings “visit safe”, “show safe”, “meet safe” and “stay safe”.

These headings regulate aspects such as the safe interaction of participants at the trade fair and will ensure that companies and industry professionals can decide to attend the event with full confidence. VISIT SAFE brings together the hygiene rules – the comprehensive measures that will ensure that all guests are able to circulate throughout the entire trade fair grounds with minimum risk. The distancing rules, which ensure the required minimum distance of 1.5 metres between participants through to an optimised entry and exit management, have been summarised under the heading MEET SAFE. SHOW SAFE brings together all the measures at the trade fair stands to ensure that business contacts can be made and maintained and that attendees can network without any risks.

Finally, the measures summarised under the heading STAY SAFE regulate everyday life at the trade fair and ensure that trade fair visitors are safe and welllooked after at all contact points. This includes the registration of all participants via online tickets, the implementation of digital guidance systems as well as safe regulations for the food service.

An in-depth overview of all the measures is available on the website of h+h cologne at https://www.hh-cologne.com/trade-fair/ h-h-cologne/koelnmesse-re-start/b-safe4business/ .
