The Business Booster 2021 – Covid-19 hygiene and safety guidelines

Our priority is the health and safety of all our staff and event attendees. To assist you in planning your event participation, EIT InnoEnergy has joined forces with all suppliers, the venue and city government to create a framework for a responsible and safe event for all attendees.

Below you will find helpful information and resources. We are looking forward to seeing you at The Business Booster 2021 on 3-4 November.

Safety measures at The Business Booster

  • Rules of entry: All attendees will be asked to present a vaccination certificate, proof of recovery or a negative test not older than 24 hours at time of admission on each day of the event. We are currently looking into the possibility of uploading this proof as part of your registration.
  • Social distancing: The venue has sufficient space to ensure that attendees maintain appropriate distance in all areas where there is seating.
  • Air quality: Air will be filtered in all spaces and face masks handed out at registration.
  • Flow of traffic: A one-way system and clear signage will be introduced to secure safe movement inside the venue. What is more, there will be wide pathways in the registration area, exhibition space, networking areas, product display area and lounges.
  • Sanitisation: All surfaces will be sanitised and cleaned frequently throughout the event. We will also have sanitising stations available throughout the venue.
  • Catering: Set-up in line with latest government regulations and organised in a decentralised way to avoid formation of crowds.

The situation in Berlin:

The Berlin city government has worked together with stakeholders to develop a joint approach to provide solutions for responsible events and ensure our participants can visit Berlin safely.

Berlin’s hotels, museums, attractions, restaurants and even the clubs (for vaccinated and recovered) are open. Please find here an overview about everything, that is already open in Berlin.
