HANNOVER MESSE postponed until July 2020 04 March 2020

As a result of the current situation regarding the coronavirus (Covid-19), Deutsche Messe is postponing HANNOVER MESSE, originally scheduled from 20th – 24th April 2020, to 13th – 17th July 2020.

The Hannover Region Health Authority has reassessed the current situation and highly recommends that the Robert Koch Institute's guidelines for major event be observed and implemented. These include comprehensive health-protection measures when organising trade fairs.

Those requirements cannot be met by Deutsche Messe in such a short period of time. In addition, implementing them would have an adverse impact on the smooth organisation of our events to such an extent that we could no longer guarantee that our exhibitors and visitors would be able to achieve their event-related goals.

“The health of our exhibitors, visitors, employees and the general public is a top priority for Deutsche Messe. The new date for HANNOVER MESSE is therefore 13th – 17th July 2020.”
