HANNOVER MESSE 2020 has been postponed because of the Coronavirus in global development.
The Hannover Region Health Authority had strongly recommended that Deutsche Messe follow the advice of the Robert Koch Institute, which includes comprehensive measures to safeguard health when hosting major events. For instance.fever measuring stations at all entrances and not allowing peoplefrom risk areas or those who have had contact with people from risk areas toenter the exhibition center.
This would have entailed a comprehensive evaluation of all trade fair participants - from exhibitors and visitors to service providers, exhibit builders and catering companies,
Deutsche Messe is unable to implement the proposed measures. In addition,their implementation would impair the staging of the event to such an extentthat the event would not fulfill its purpose or would do so only with considerable restrictions for exhibitors and visitors.
Since the health of exhibitors, visitors, employees, and the public is the toppriority for Deutsche Messe, the decision was made in consultation with HANNOVER MESSE's exhibitor advisory councils to switch to the July date.
At the same time, eastfound is also paying close attention to the latest exhibition trends and maintaining active communication with people inside and outside the industry.
