Protective and sanitary measures under Covid-19 conditions. 

In order to ensure the safety of all exhibitors, visitors and employees during the exhibition, we have developed measures that enable safe participation. In doing so, we follow the current valid requirements of the Austrian Federal Government, along with the recommendations of the WHO for infection control and hygiene recommendations for the reopening of exhibitions, congresses and trade fairs .

 Our concept is subject to ongoing adjustments to the respective current regulations and conditions. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact our team. 

The well-being of all involved is our top priority.

Current status as of 28.09.2021

 Planned measures as of October 1, 2021
Currently, this regulation is valid only until October 31, 2021.

 Events of 500 people or more can be held with a permit. All visitors must present a 2G certificate, which means vaccinated or recovered.

Below we have summarized the most important measures and regulations in the form of our hygiene concept and the current regulations:


Number of visitors

As of July 1, 2021, there is no limit on visitor numbers.

Admission permit 


As it stands now, to attend the exhibition as an exhibitor, you must meet one of the 2.5G prerequisites, which means vaccinated, recovered, or PCR testing.

What vaccines are currently considered approved for vaccination?


Currently, entry to CULTIVA HANFEXPO 2021 is allowed with vaccination by one of the 4 EU approved vaccines (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen Pharmaceutica NV/Johnson & Johnson). Vaccination by any other vaccines is not approved (e.g. Sputnik V).

Registration of all participants


All exhibitors, visitors, service partners or service providers must register. By registering, we ensure that the health department can quickly identify contact persons in the event of a Corona infection for contact trqacing purpose. We ask that pre-registration and/or online registration be utilized due to spacing regulations. Tickets are available mobile/online and allow contactless entry.

Use of cashless and contactless payment methods


At the exhibition center, cashless and contactless payment will be possible in all areas.

Orientation system


The MARX HALLE exhibition center is equipped with an information system. This allows us to disseminate information, manage visitor flows and point out current regulations.

Medical service on location


The medical service is always present throughout the entire duration of the exhibition. Paramedics and doctors treat medical emergencies directly on site. If necessary, they are supported by the public ambulance service. In addition, a hygiene officer is on site.

Communication of the hygiene and distance regulations


In order to offer all exhibition participants the greatest possible safety, the valid hygiene and distance rules on the exhibition grounds are communicated by hall signs, hall announcements and qualified staff.

Waiver of exhibition and stand parties


As things stand at present, stand parties are permitted during the duration of the exhibition. We will keep you informed on an ongoing basis.



Consumption may take place indoors in a sitting or standing position.



Seat assignment is not necessary.




For the safety of all participants, please adhere to the following guidelines set forth by the Ministry of Health:



According to the current situation, masks are not compulsory at the exhibition.

Disinfection and cleaning


For your safety, we regularly clean and disinfect touched surfaces (e.g. tables, handrails, door handles) as well as our sanitary facilities at increased intervals. You will find hand washing and disinfection facilities in sufficient distance at all important locations on the premises.

Separations at all counters


The separation at all counters is not necessary according to the current status.



The exhibition halls, the Marx Halle and the entrance areas are equipped with modern ventilation systems that operate with maximum fresh air supply. The system enables separate supply and exhaust air switching. In this way, we guarantee multiple, complete air exchange.

Keep distance


There is no obligation to keep your distance on the exhibition grounds, but we ask you to keep your distance in your own interest.

Entrance areas


Appropriate spacing measures, such as floor markings and partitions, are used to ensure that there is sufficient space in the entrance areas.
