How do you organize the Digitale Leute Summit concerning COVID-19?
We plan to create the typical Digitale Leute atmosphere – including an international lineup, hands-on workshops, a curious and authentic crowd, and entertainment in 2021. We are fully aware of the pandemic situation and will comply with all hygiene measures by North-Rhine Westphalia. The safety of our guests has the highest priority. This is why we embrace the highest hygiene measurements, even if they are not necessary anymore. In our location Palladium Cologne, we guarantee social distancing as we only use a fracture of the location’s maximum possible capacity. We offer disinfection and face masks for free.
If the pandemic situation against all projections worsens again, we will shift to a remote edition, as we did in 2020.
To ensure the traceability of contacts, all persons – exhibitors, visitors, organizers, and service providers – must register digitally in the DL Summit ticket store when entering the exhibition grounds. Surname, first name, and e-mail address, as well as address, are recorded. At the event, the tickets of the visitors are scanned and thus the period of stay is documented. Two separate doors will be available at the main entrance. Ticket control will be contactless.
Admission of the entry
For the protection of all concerned, persons will only be admitted to events if they can show a complete vaccination or proof of recovery of COVID-19. In the event of recognizable symptoms, these persons will be denied access. They are requested to contact a physician or the health department immediately by telephone for clarification.
General Security Measures
We have provided hand disinfection dispensers throughout the DL Summit site, both in the entrance and exit areas, as well as in and in front of the sanitary facilities. Furthermore, every attendant gets a hand sanitizer in their goodie bag. The cleaning frequency and disinfection of sanitary facilities, contact surfaces, and objects is increased during event operations. We regularly monitor the quality of cleaning. Our buildings have very efficient indoor air systems. They are operated with increased outside air volume. This enables a constant exchange of air in the exhibition halls. We train our employees on a regular basis. A risk assessment based on the SARS-CoV-2 occupational health and safety standards has been carried out for all of them and appropriate measures have been defined. Of course, we continuously monitor our measures.
Medical mouth-nose protection can be worn on the premises.
Our events are designed in such a way that in principle a minimum distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained.
