Commitment to Visitor Safety
MetalMadrid, Composites Madrid and Robomática is all set for 17 & 18 November 2021 at IFEMA Madrid with safety, sanitary and social-distancing measures in place.
We continue to liaise with the Government, IFEMA and the Association of Event Organisers, who have the most up-to-date information regarding the prevention and spread of COVID-19 and will follow all guidance set out by them and with counsel from our advisory board.
Your safety is our priority, and we are in the process of implementing the health and safety protocols that have been defined in partnership with SGS. The new partnership will ensure you can participate with complete peace of mind.
Cleaning & Hygiene
Comprehensive cleaning and disinfection protocols
All surfaces at MetalMadrid and Composites Spain are treated with hospital-grade disinfectants. The most frequently touched surfaces will be disinfected at regular intervals.
Hand sanitiser stations will be available everywhere on the exhibition floor and in common areas such as seminar theatres. Please make use of them reguarly during the day!
Smart Badge contactless technology
The safest way to visit an event is through the use of our Smart Badge, which requires no physical contact and guarantees a 100% safe event experience. You will either receive your Smart Badge in the mail before the show, or you can print it out at the entrance. Thanks to the embedded NFC chip you can use your badge throughout the event to gather product and stand information with a swipe of your badge. At the end of the day you receive all collected information via email.
Cashless payment To protect your personal health and safety, we only accept cashless payments at Easyfairs venues.
Food & Drinks
All catering services must be delivered to tables with a maximum of 4 people and a distance of 1.5m between adjacent chairs. Waiters who will be exclusively in charge of the service shall disinfect their hands with hydro-alcoholic gel after each contact with customers. Tables dedicated to catering must also be disinfected after each use. It is not permitted to eat or drink standing up at any time and in any area of the fairgrounds.
Personal protection & detection
It is a condition on entry to IFEMA that everyone, without exception, must have their TEMPERATURE TAKEN using the system provided for this purpose. Automatic temperature screenings before you enter the event will tell us if you have a temperature of 37.5° or above. If your temperature is above 37.5°, we will be unable to grant you admission. We recommend that you check your temperature before leaving home as a precaution and to avoid any inconvenience.
Wear a face mask is mandatory upon entering MetalMadrid y Composites Spain Madrid and IFEMA.
Plexiglass shields will be installed at registration desks, information points, catering points and counters staffed by team members where necessary throughout the event floor.
Crowd density standards
To ensure appropriate physical distancing during MetalMadrid y Composites Spain we will control the number of people present in the event halls at all times, in accordance with local guidance.
Social distancing and crowd management
We kindly request that you maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres from other people. This social distancing rule will be adapted according the local safety regulations.
¡Reemplaza el apretón de manos por el choque de codos! ¡Los apretones de manos quedan a la espera por el momento! Sabemos que es difícil, porque de manera natural nos sale dar la mano en el mundo de los negocios. Te sugerimos que el saludo sea un choque de codos, alternativamente, un “beso al aire” como manera amigable de saludar, un simple saludo con la mano o con el pulgar hacia arriba. Mientras el saludo sea sin contacto físico…siéntete libre de usar tu propio estilo.
Online registration and touchless scanning
Please register online before the event, as registration onsite is not possible. You can either print out your admission voucher, which has a barcode, or bring it on your mobile device. You will then be able to scan the barcode at one of our touchless scanning stations. If you register more than 3 weeks prior to the event*, you will more than likely receive your badge in the post saving you time and eliminating overcrowding at registration. *May be subject to changes by the Organization.
Venta de entradas online
Por favor, adquiere tu entrada online por adelantado, porque no es posible obtenerla en el evento. Please purchase your ticket online in advance, as this will not be possible onsite. You can either print out your ticket, which has a barcode, or bring it on your mobile device. You will then be able to scan the barcode at one of our touchless scanning stations.
We will make it convenient for you to register for a specific timeslot so that we can ensure compliance with crowd density standards, while saving you time. You can amend the time slot you selected when registering, by using your registration key that you will find in your confirmation email.

One-way aisles and directional walkways
