According to the results of a latest evaluation by AUMA – Association of the German Trade Fair Industry most of Germany’s 15 largest exhibition centres and individual exhibition halls are being used for local vaccination campaigns in many cities. Many smaller venues are also being used in the campaign to keep the population in their respective regions healthy. COVID-19 vaccination centres are being set up and vaccination schedules are being planned throughout Germany at the moment.
From scheduling and visitor control to procurement and storage of the vaccine, data controlling, doctor consultation and vaccination, all complex processes have to be set up for the procedure. The exhibition centres in Germany are also very well equipped for the enormous task. They have excellent public transport connections, suitable rooms, modern sanitary facilities, ventilation systems, high security standards and offer high-quality technical support.
As a rule, only a small part of the capacity on the exhibition centres is used for the vaccination campaigns while the majority of the space is reserved for the main business, which is expected to get started again in the course of the first half of 2021- organising exhibitions, conferences and events.
