Information about EXPO 2020 in Dubai

Dear customers and partners of Koelnmesse,

We are currently receiving enquiries about whether a potential threat from the occurrence of the corona virus in China will have an impact on our Koelnmesse events.

For Koelnmesse’s part, we take the topic seriously and have initiated a state of heightened vigilance. This includes us being in permanent dialogue with the health authorities. In view of the recommendations of the World Health Organization, the German Federal Ministry of Health and the local health authorities, there is currently no reason to cancel major events such as those at Koelnmesse. Therefore the German trade fair organisers confirmed in a joint statement that all upcoming trade fairs would be held as planned.

That means: All of Koelnmesse’s events in Cologne will be going ahead as planned. We are looking forward to your participation. We have taken constructive prophylactic measures at our exhibition grounds and are informing our customers accordingly. We have increased disinfectant supplies, considered the most effective way to prevent transmission. Highly frequented areas of the exhibition grounds are also being cleaned at shorter intervals. Qualified doctors and paramedics at our medical stations are prepared for potential suspected cases and are available to answer your questions in situ.

The Chinese Koelnmesse event interzum guangzhou (28-31 March 2020) has been postponed. A new date will be announced. EmTech ASIA (25-26 February 2020) in Singapore will also be postponed to 4 and 5 August 2020. The MIECF (26.-28.03.2020) in China is cancelled. At this time, plans remain in place for all other outbound Koelnmesse events to be carried out as scheduled.
