As the protection and safety of exhibitors and visitors is of top priority for Messe München, we are monitoring the current developments in connection with COVID-19 (Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2) closely and are in constant exchange with the Bavarian State Government and the responsible health authorities. In order to make the best possible decisions at an early stage, we have considered various scenarios so that we can act appropriately depending on how the pandemic and vaccination situation continues to develop in the coming weeks.
To ensure that trade fairs can take place safely and successfully even during the coronavirus pandemic, Messe München and other Bavarian trade-fair companies have worked out a safety and hygiene concept, which was officially ratified by the Bavarian state government on 23 June 2020. This concept ensures that trade fairs can start again from September 2020. Essentially, it is based on three topics:
The most important points include the general rule of 1.5 meters distance on the whole grounds. Where this distance cannot be maintained, and generally indoors, a mask is mandatory. If the infection rate continues to fall, which can be assumed from today's point of view, the mouth and nose cover can be removed from exhibition stands at the table. The traceability of all participants is guaranteed by pre-registration and our admission system.
