How can trade fairs start safely again?

Mouth and nose protection and 1.5 metre safety distance as well as comprehensive hygiene measures were and are indispensable during the corona period. But how can trade fair organisers ensure that contact tracing can be carried out smoothly and passed on to the responsible authorities in the event of a coronavirus outbreak? Find out here how you can ensure this important step towards reopening for exhibitors with our help.

Until an effective vaccine against corona is found, the health of visitors and exhibitors is the focus of trade fair organisers, not least because of official requirements. In particular, the official reporting regulations that come into effect after a case of infection present many a challenge. With simple visitor tracking at the entrances and exits, it is sometimes difficult to reconstruct a contact chain in the event of an emergency. But what if the required data could be collected as accurately as possible and, of course, in compliance with the GDPR?

This is possible with the FairTracing process. It is based on Scan2Lead technology and can track the visitor's path at a trade fair very precisely based on the touchpoints visited. All that is required is regular contactless data capture of the respective visitor via a scan at the exhibition centre. After admission control and initial registration, the Scan2Lead app uses the FairTracing method to calculate probable time windows with each process, which precisely reconstruct and narrow down the paths and possible contact persons of visitors. This works via influencing factors such as stand size, the number of stand employees and lead sheet activities. In the event of an emergency, the health authorities receive the data securely, digitally encrypted and at the required speed.

In this way, trade fair organisers can usefully supplement their hygiene concept and demonstrate that it is safe to visit a trade fair. Unlike other applications, the FairTracing process can be used internationally.
