Messe Düsseldorf postpones interpack 2020 – New dates set

Dear Sir or Madam,

We had to make a difficult decision today: We will postpone the trade fair interpack 2020. It will now take place from 25 February to 03 March 2021.

In doing so, we are following the recommendation of the crisis management team of the German Federal Government to take into account the principles of the Robert Koch Institute when assessing the risk of major events. Based on this recommendation and the recent significant increase in the number of people infected with the new corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), including in Europe, we have reassessed the situation. In addition, there is the general ruling issued by the city of Düsseldorf on 11 March 2020, in which major events with more than 1,000 participants present at the same time are generally prohibited.

In order to fulfil Messe Düsseldorf's responsibility to avert danger, we had to minimise the increased risk of infection at major events. Measures to reduce the risk of transmission at major events, which the Robert Koch Institute had clearly defined - such as ventilation of the venue appropriate to the risk of infection, the exclusion of persons from risk groups and the comprehensive installation of entrance screenings - were practically impossible to implement. Also, comparable measures were and are unreasonable in view of the unforeseeable rapid development and the magnitude of the various events with up to 60,000 participants. We have therefore made our decision fully aware of our responsibility for your safety, and that of your customers.

We are aware of what this means for you. We know how much influence it has on your planning, your business development, your customers, partners and employees. We know what it means to prepare an event over many years and then have to postpone it. This is not easy for us either. But we rely on your trust in our decision.

Thank you for your support and trust!
Your Messe Düsseldorf Team
