Lockdown Light in November 2020

On October 30th, 2020, the State of NRW declared the holding of trade fairs to be inadmissible until November 30th, 2020 - see Corona Protection Ordinance §11 (2). Therefore, no trade fairs are currently taking place on our premises. You can find the current calendar of events here.

The previously valid hygiene and infection protection concept of Messe Essen, which complies with the requirements of the Corona Protection Ordinance, can be found here. As a result, Messe Essen has developed a hygiene concept guide for exhibitors and a hygiene concept guide for visitors, which will be applied as soon as trade fairs are permitted to be held in NRW again.

Autumn/Winter 2020

Dear exhibitors,
dear visitors,

the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic are also having a noticeable effect on Messe Essen. Trade fairs, congresses and numerous other events cannot take place at present. In close cooperation with our partner associations, advisory board members and guest organisers, we have rescheduled most of the trade fairs planned for 2020 or cancelled them in accordance with official instructions.

With regard to our calendar of events for 2021, the following applies: We are following current developments very closely and are in close contact with local authorities and the German government, also through our umbrella organization AUMA. In this way, we ensure that we can react to a changed situation and take appropriate measures at any time.

You can rest assured: We are constantly monitoring and evaluating developments in order to inform you as quickly as possible about any possible effects on the 2021 trade fair calendar and to give you maximum planning security for your trade fair participation.

We understand that you have many questions in these challenging times and will naturally remain available to you - as quickly and directly as possible in the current situation.

Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!
Yours, Team Messe Essen
