Coronavirus: Status Quo
For Germany’s trade fair industry the health of visitors, exhibitors and other participants of exhibitions has top priority. With regard to the novel Coronavirus the German trade fair organisations have taken numerous measures in order to protect exhibition participants as best as possible. These measures range from specific sanitation to medical services onsite. Additionally the trade fair organisers are in permanent contact with the public health authorities concerning necessary provisions. To date the German public health authorities have not expressed cause for concern and have not ordered trade fair organisations to limit the realisation of exhibitions.
AUMA, Association of the German Trade Fair Industry, likewise is in regular contact with the Federal Foreign Office, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the Federal Ministry of Health.
None of the ministries has expressed objection to the realisation of trade fairs in Germany. In general, the public health authorities and the Robert-Koch-Institut, currently rate the contagiousness for Germany’s population as low. Accordingly, there are neither entry restrictions for Chinese citizens nor limits for the issuance of visa.
AUMA and the trade fair organisations are in regular contact with the specialist authorities and provide a measure catalogue for the maximum protection of trade fair participants.
