Latest information about 2021 – coronavirus (COVID-19)

Your safety is our top priority

Since September trade fairs have been taking place again in Bavaria. Important: The ban on big events until end of the year 2020 issued by the federal and state governments does not apply to trade fairs, but explicitly refers to events at which contact tracing and hygiene regulations cannot be observed. These big events include folk festivals, major concerts or festivals.  


Information regarding the hygiene concept

To ensure that trade fairs can take place safely and successfully even during the coronavirus pandemic, Messe München and other Bavarian trade fair companies have worked out a safety and hygiene concept, which was officially ratified by the Bavarian state government on 23 June 2020. This concept ensures that trade fairs can start again from September 2020. Essentially, it is based on three topics:  

  • Social distancing 
  • Hygiene 
  • Traceability of all participants  

The most important points include the general rule of 1.5 meters distance on the whole grounds. Where this distance cannot be maintained, and generally indoors, a mask is mandatory. The traceability of all participants is guaranteed by pre-registration and our admission system.   

You will find further measures that Messe München as the organizer implements for you in our FAQ.
