The rule of thumb for international visitors is: Trade fair participants may travel from all countries to Germany provided that certain conditions are met.
Three days of business contacts and knowledge transfer—that was the first completely digital IFAT impact Business Summit held from September 8 to 10, 2020, featuring a wide range of technologies from recycling to water management, virtual 1:1 talks and discussions on ways towards a real circular economy.
From September 1, trade fair business may once again take place live on site in Bavaria. Messe München promptly opened two locations as part of the safety and hygiene concept it developed. “The customers of SMX in the ICM and of FABRIC DAYS in the MOC are looking back on a successful start,” says Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München GmbH. “September 1 represents the opportunity to carry out in-person trade fairs again. We are very pleased that our safety and hygiene concept has moved the Bavarian authorities to take this step,” reports Klaus Dittrich. As the economy requires permanent access to the markets and the coronavirus solely restricts freedom of movement, since June Messe München has been organizing digital platforms for the industries of its product portfolios.
