PLEASE NOTE: All attendees must either be DOUBLE VACCINATED* or HAVE EVIDENCE OF PAST INFECTION, as these two criteria are requirements to attend an exhibition in Vienna from October.
Plus, our additional requirement is that you must have proof of a negative test taken no more than 24 hours prior to arriving at the expo. (48 hrs with PCR) This test can be done in Vienna or in your own country prior to traveling. All tests must be by a third-party specialist test facility that gives proof of the test and negative outcome. Home self-testing is not valid.
There are numerous facilities in Vienna – including pharmacies and even hotels – that perform or hand out tests. There is also a test facility outside our venue, but we advise you not to rely on this as queues may develop and you must wait 20-30 minutes for the result.
You will be asked for proof of the test on entering the venue. Your test will give you access for all days of the expo including build-up.
(*For double-shot vaccines, you must show that you have received the second injection no more than 360 days before arrival. For single-shot vaccines, you must show that you received the vaccine more than 21 days but no more than 270 days before arrival.)
