The well-being and health of all persons involved at INTERGEO is close to our hearts. In coordination with the venue, Deutsche Messe AG, which is also in close consultation with the relevant authorities, a concept has been agreed in which hygienic, medical and organisational measures are taken into account.

The top priority is the safety and health of all exhibitors, visitors, service partners and employees.
In addition, the provisions of the current Lower Saxony Ordinance on the Containment of the Corona Virus SARS-CoV-2 apply as a matter of principle.

3G rule

For the on-site part of INTERGEO in Hannover, the 3G rule applies. Vaccinated, recovered and tested persons can participate on site, for all others we offer participation via our digital formats. Because your health and safety are important to us.

The hygiene concept at a glance

The hygiene concept at a glance

  • For the on-site part of INTERGEO in Hannover, the 3G rule applies. Vaccinated, recovered and tested persons can participate on site.
  • 1.5m distance - it is ensured that all trade fair participants can maintain the necessary distance, e.g. through wide hall aisles and floor markings.
  • Tickets - regulated online ticketing with full registration and thus the possibility of contact tracing
  • Fulfilment of all required hygiene measures, e.g. sufficient hand disinfection facilities and appropriate information boards throughout the exhibition grounds, intensified cleaning of higher-frequented areas and surfaces, control and quality assurance.
  • Permanent ventilation of entrances, halls and conference rooms by means of state-of-the-art ventilation systems.
  • Wearing of mouth and nose protection on the entire event site (in all closed rooms and halls)
  • Adapted catering concept


The following applies to all participants at INTERGEO 2021 Hannover


Entry for foreign trade fair participants

The Federal Government has decided that trade fair participants (exhibitors and visitors) can generally enter Germany, even if they come from a country that is not part of the EU/Schengen area or the group of countries on the German positive list.
Up-to-date information on entry regulations for participants in trade fairs in Germany can be found on the website of the Ausstellungs- und Messe-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft e.V..
