News

Dear Customers and Partners of Koelnmesse,

it is our firm goal to hold ISM at the planned time from 31.01. to 03.02.2021 in Cologne on our trade fair grounds. Due to the latest decisions taken on 06 May 2020 by government offices and public authorities in Germany, the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia will be permitting from 30 May 2020 onwards the holding of trade fairs and congresses, subject to conditions.

We are aware of the responsibility that this involves. As event professionals, we see ourselves in a position to create framework conditions suitable to trade fairs, even in times such as these.

Trade fairs with a B2B orientation are fundamentally different to sporting events and funfairs. With trade fairs, the focus is on personal conversations and business contacts.

We are convinced that our trade fairs offer exhibitors and visitors ideal platforms for accelerating their return to business and for a rapid success after the crisis.

We see even now extensive travel facilitation by autumn, at least for Europe, as the basis for appropriate participation. We assume that more countries will follow suit until the start of our trade fairs. The resumption of air traffic will also contribute to this.

We are also convinced that the participants of our trade fairs are aware of their responsibility and will stick to the safety regulations and precautionary measures.

In Cologne, hotels, restaurants, transport companies and retailers have been familiar with the special features of the trade fair business for many years and prepare carefully for the return of their guests and customers.

The ISM as central business platform is indispensable to quickly and sustainably return the economy to the greatest possible normalcy.

Production, logistics, sales and communication will change, networking of the players, reactivation of economic relationships and the establishment of new business will be more important than ever before. It is essential for all market participants to actively prepare for this now.

Even in these times of the coronavirus pandemic, we have a safe and promising trade fair venue to offer our customers. With this in mind, in compliance with the terms of the Coronavirus Protection Ordinance of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia and in close coordination with the authorities in Cologne, we have drawn up measures for our trade fairs in Cologne that will seamlessly intermesh and govern the way we interact at the trade fair. Our goal is to provide the highest and most professional level of safety while creating an environment, in which our customers’ business can grow again.

Get a picture of our measures, which we have summarized under the keyword #B-SAFE4business .

We have an obligation to our customers and their sectors to offer them favourable prospects once again. The Koelnmesse event teams look forward to welcoming you at ISM to the trade fair grounds in Cologne.

As of September 2020
