Personal interaction even during pandemic times

People with masks

Events can once again be held in our locations – with all due caution and adhering strictly to extensive safety precautions. As a seasoned event organiser with its own venue, Messe Frankfurt has finalised a hygiene concept with the relevant authorities, which makes it possible to hold events again.

This involves adhering to distancing requirements through professional crowd management, planning seating and hall arrangements, ventilating rooms with 100% fresh air, adapting cleaning intervals, modifying food service concepts and ensuring contact tracing. Have a look at general information about our protection and hygiene concept on our website. Our Sales Guest Events team would be happy to give you advise you on implementing digital event formats. All details can be obtained directly from the Sales Guest Events team, which will also advise you on the implementation of digital event formats.

"I would like to say thank you, also on behalf of my colleagues, to Messe Frankfurt for enabling the Ecumenical Kirchentag to be held in and broadcast from its exhibition grounds: thank you for your unfailingly reliable assistance, creativity, patience, constructive interaction and for accommodating us in so many ways.”

“Art is not something that you can experience digitally – it thrives on direct experience. This is why we are delighted that we were able to hold the Discovery Art Fair 2020 successfully at Messe Frankfurt. Our sincere thanks go to the entire Messe Frankfurt team, who worked with us to design a safe event that complied with all regulations.”

"The Handelsblatt Banking Summit, which was held in your Congress Center, was a total success. Despite the tightening of the coronavirus restrictions, we and our guests felt safe and at ease in your hands at all times. Your comprehensive hygiene concept and guidance regarding the implementation of our event contributed significantly to this. Many thanks!"

“Every year, the Festhalle provides us with a unique setting for the finish of the Frankfurt marathon. In 2020, of course, everything is different, and the prevailing conditions are very difficult for sporting events. Fortunately, the exhibition grounds, being fenced in, constituted the perfect venue for the World Half-Marathon Championships qualifier, allowing us to stage the race safely despite the pandemic. The event was a complete success!”

"The first Stuzubi Student Fair since the start of the coronavirus pandemic was hosted by Messe Frankfurt. We found your professional approach to the new hygiene requirements highly convincing. The fair allowed 1,350 young people to find out more in person about the various courses of study and training open to them with 3 time slots available for them to choose from. We are very satisfied that the implementation went so smoothly; visitors and exhibitors alike were impressed by the on-site organisation.“
