Regardless of this, measures such as improved admission management, optimized visitor guidance, wider aisles or digital queue management will be implemented for gamescom and devcom.
At the same time, Koelnmesse is sticking to its extensive hygiene measures, such as disinfectant dispensers and regular cleaning intervals. Koelnmesse reserves the right to make further regulations for gamescom and devcom (masks, 3G) and will decide on these measures at a later date in light of the dynamics of the Corona virus situation.
