Guangzhou, China / 03 March 2020
Dear customers and partners of Koelnmesse,
We are currently receiving enquiries about whether a potential threat from the occurrence of the corona virus in China will have an impact on our Koelnmesse events.
For Koelnmesse’s part, we take this topic seriously, because the health of all trade fair participants is paramount.
For each individual event, we will evaluate the recommendations of the responsible authorities regarding major events and, as before, we will make our decisions after careful consideration. In this respect, preparations for our upcoming events in Cologne are continuing. The preparations for the interzum guangzhou are continuing as planned according to the current status. We look forward to your participation.
We will provide information about sensible prophylactic measures on site. We are increasingly offering disinfectants, which are considered to be the most effective means against transmission. Highly frequented areas will also be cleaned with increased frequency. Qualified doctors and paramedics in our medical stations are prepared for possible suspicious cases and are available to answer any questions you may have on site. Should a suspicious case arise during the event, all spatial and organisational precautions are taken on the trade fair grounds to ensure immediate remedial actions.
