COVID-19 Statement

COVID-19 Statement

Hello exhibitors, visitors, and partners,

Today we are reaching out to assure you of our continued support and dedication.

As COVID-19 continues to unfold and develop into a tragic and disruptive force here in North America and globally, your health, safety and wellbeing, along with that of all our exhibitors, visitors, partners, co-workers and families, are very near and dear to us.

As you are likely aware, Koelnmesse Group has had to postpone several of our trade shows across all industries in Europe, Asia and now also South America to later dates in the year or even to next year.

We wanted to let you know, we are here for you! You can reach us at our regular office numbers or email. We are working from our homes so you may occasionally hear a kid laughing, a bird singing or a dog barking but we will continue to provide you with quality service as we are all adjusting to a new reality.

We will keep you posted on new show dates and developments and guide you through the process. At the same time, we are moving forward with the planning of our fall and winter shows so that when we all emerge from this crisis – and we will – we are ready to reconnect you to international markets.

In the upcoming weeks, we are looking at new ways to meet with you – such as informal virtual get-togethers, webinars and video conferences. Now is a time to reflect, gather new ideas and plan for the future.

In the meantime – stay safe – stay tuned – stay optimistic.

Warm regards,

Your Koelnmesse Team
