Trade fairs may be held once again in Bavaria no later than September 1 under a decision made on May 18 by the state’s Council of Ministers led by Bavarian Minister President Markus Söder. The main requirement for the resumption of trade fairs will be the continued positive development of COVID-19 infection rates. TrendSet will serve as a pilot trade fair when it is held in Munich from July 10 to 12. An elaborate infection-prevention and hygiene concept will be tested as part of the fair.
Klaus Dittrich, the Chairman and CEO of Messe München, said:
“The decision made on May 18, 2021, is a very encouraging and important signal for Messe München. It gives us the planning security we need for the trade fairs that we have scheduled for fall. With our infection-prevention and hygiene concept, we are prepared in the best-possible way for upcoming events that will use in-person or hybrid formats, including IAA MOBILITY, EXPO REAL, OutDoor by ISPO and productronica. We are also very encouraged by the lifting of travel restrictions and the rising rate of immunizations. The decision is also an important signal for the business community in the region. The trade-fair industry is one of the leading economic engines of Munich and Upper Bavaria. In particular, the activities of Messe München have a strong impact on the region’s economy and will turn the company into a key generator of momentum behind the economy’s fast recovery after the crisis.”
