More support for exhibitors. More safety for all.

With a centralized catering facility in each hall, the entire infrastructure and coordination of catering services is handled by a single provider. On the one hand, catering for employees and customers is thus ensured without any effort on part of the exhibitors, and on the other hand, all processes – and thus compliance with hygiene measures – can be easily and reliably checked and no longer fall within the exhibitors' area of responsibility. Our catering service covers all three exhibition halls so that you are always well looked after without having to leave your hall.

By dispensing with individual catering at the exhibition stands, we provide support to the exhibitors at automatica sprint as they no longer have to arrange the catering for customers and employees themselves. Instead, culinary versatility will be conveniently provided by a central facility. In addition, this approach also ensures the uniform implementation of all applicable safety and hygiene regulations. This includes work clothing, protective masks, gloves, head covers and regular health checks of the catering staff, protective glass partitions at the food and drink counters as well as no more self-service for unpacked food and poured beverages such as coffee or tea.

Only bottles or food with individual packaging can be self-served, warm dishes are plated by chefs and served without direct contact. And in order to maintain the minimum distance even during peak times, the food and beverage counters are particularly plentiful and spacious. All measures are in compliance with the current hygiene protocol and of course we hope to be in a position to relax them by June 2021.

How will personnel catering be provided?

A separate restaurant area functions as an external canteen for all stand personnel. Whether alone or in small groups: Personnel may visit this facility at any time according to their individual needs. The exhibitor pass is used as an ID for access and the caterer will issue a collective invoice after the exhibition, which will simplify payment and invoicing procedures significantly. We will determine the number of people in the run-up to the exhibition to optimize capacity planning. The exhibitor pass also provides access to beverage catering in the central networking areas, which is also paid for by means of a collective invoice.

How will guest catering be provided?

Inviting guests will also be simplified. This is done by way of food and beverage vouchers that are presented e.g. at the beer garden or restaurant when having meals with customers. In addition, a collective invoice based on actual consumption will be issued after the exhibition, replacing time-consuming individual expense accounting. Of course guests and exhibitors have full freedom to choose when and what they want to eat or drink. Exhibitors may also reserve tables on request.

How will visitor catering be provided?

Nothing changes for visitors. The catering services will be available to them at any time, payment is made individually on site.
