No travel restrictions apply for travellers from EU member states and from countries on the so-called positive list.
Trade fair participants from all other countries can also enter Germany, as they are considered business travellers with an urgent need to travel.

Is there a quarantine obligation or Corona test duty?

In Germany, quarantine regulations are issued by the individual federal states. According to these, people entering Germany from a risk area are currently generally exempt from the quarantine obligation if they enter with a negative corona test. If, when entering the country you already carry with you a test result, to be valid the test may not have been conducted more than 48 hours prior to entry. The test certificate must be written in German or English. Before entering the country, ACHEMA participants should check which quarantine and testing obligations apply in the respective federal state they are entering.

Offers for mailing campaigns

We have currently been informed that emails are circulating that offer mailing campaigns addressing decision-makers and professionals of various industries. These are questionable offers of third-parties luring with promising mailing campaigns to personalised addresses. In this context we point out that DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH is neither associated with providers of fee-based e-mailings or address lists nor do we carry out mailing campaigns on behalf of exhibitors.

Dubious entry offers in exhibitor manuals
Due to recent events we point out that DECHEMA Ausstellungs-Gmbh is the exclusive publisher of the ACHEMA catalogue and the ACHEMA online exhibition directory. DECHEMA cooperates with several publishing houses to ensure a comprehensive, high-quality coverage of ACHEMA before, during and after the event. Any other directories, catalogues, expo guides, fair guides, etc. are neither authorized by DECHEMA Ausstellungs-Gmbh nor will any distribution take place on the exhibition grounds.

Research Contribution

What is the research contribution?

A voluntary research contribution of € 6.50/m², based on the size of the stand area, is levied on behalf of the Max Buchner Research Foundation (Max-Buchner-Forschungsstiftung), which is administered in an honorary capacity by DECHEMA; after ACHEMA 2022 it will be paid into the Foundation without deductions of any kind. The exhibitor will automatically receive a certificate of charitable donation for the exact amount that he has paid. By this means the research promotion performed by DECHEMA on a broad basis is enfostered thus supporting small and medium sized companies being active in the field of ACHEMA related topics.

Visitor Flat-Rate

What is the visitor flat-rate?

Each exhibitor pays an obligatory sum for access to an optional number of day tickets for guests calculated as a graduated flat-rate based on the size of the stand. For further details please see item C.8 "Visitor Acquisition" of the General Conditions of Participation.
