New Hygiene Guidelines for Berlin’s Event Industry

23rd Jun, 2020

visitBerlin and Berlin’s meetings industry are presenting comprehensive guidelines on holding events safely during the corona pandemic. 

From 2 June, indoor events with up to 150 people and outdoor events with up to 200 people are once again permitted in Berlin.

The health and safety of event participants is a top priority. To this end, the visitBerlin Convention Office, together with visitBerlin Convention Partner e.V. and the association of the Berlin event industry have put together comprehensive hygiene guidelines for Berlin’s event industry.

Following on from the current Containment Measures Ordinance for Berlin, these hygiene guidelines give concrete instructions for its practical implementation. For example, what needs to be observed during the admission of participants, what kind of catering is permitted, and what should be considered regarding room layout? The aim is to guarantee consistent standards of hygiene for all events across Berlin. 

The guidelines were agreed in partnership with the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, as well as the Senate Department for Health, and have been approved as a framework for hygienic practices.

The website of the Berlin Convention Office offers further information on event management during corona. The guidelines are available here for download.

From 30 June, indoor events with up to 300 people will be possible in Berlin

Further gradual easing is planned for the coming weeks. From 30 June onwards, indoor events with up to 300 people will be possible. The following applies to outdoor events: from 16 June, events with up to 500 participants are permitted, and two weeks later, from 30 June, events with up to 1000 participants are permitted. All events are subject to the current hygiene and social distancing regulations.
