In Germany, all trade fairs will take place as planned. The German trade fair organisers are in close contact with the public health au-thorities. At present, they see no reason to limit the realisation of trade shows.
The health of visitors, exhibitors and additional participants has top priority.

The German trade fair organisers have taken numerous measures in order to protect the trade fair participants’ health as best as possible.
These measures range from specific sanitation to medical services onsite and are based on recommendations of WHO (World Health Organisation) and acknowledged scientific organisations such as the Robert-Koch-Institut.
Trade fairs in Germany stand for best possible health protection in order to secure the internationally appreciated feature of connecting visitors and exhibitors from all over the world.
