SARS-CoV-2: Current information
The spread of SARS-CoV-2 has presented us all with new challenges. The top priority for us as trade fair, congress and event organisers is and remains the protection of our fellow human beings. In order to enable customers and partners to meet each other in person and do business together again after hard months of social distancing and isolation, Messe Frankfurt has developed measures and concepts which make that possible in a highly secure environment. Under the following link you will find all relevant information on this topic.
Messe Frankfurt – the marketing and service partner for trade fairs, congresses and other events
As a reliable partner to individual sectors, Messe Frankfurt creates innovative network platforms. Thanks to its extensive global presence and longstanding digital expertise, Messe Frankfurt still managed to organise more than 150* events worldwide even under the very difficult conditions of the year 2020. The diversity of these events helps to come up with new, clearly defined solutions for the various questions facing business and society today – from artificial intelligence, renewable energy and mobility concepts to new forms of learning, intelligent textiles, personalisation and Smart Cities.
We know which future trends are currently of great importance to our customers and have close ties with policymakers, with social institutions of every hue and, above all, with the sectors represented at our trade fairs.
