AUMA Statement - Coronavirus


By Philip Harting – chairman of AUMA, Association of the German Trade Fair Industry – in view of the Mobile World Congress cancellation in Barcelona


In Germany, all trade fairs will take place as planned. The German trade fair organisers are in close contact with the public health authorities. At present, they see no reason to limit the realisation of exhibitions.


The health of visitors, exhibitors and additional participants has top priority. The German trade fair organisers have taken numerous measures in order to protect the trade fair participants’ health as best as possible. 


These measures range from specific sanitation to medical services onsite and are based on recommendations of WHO (World Health Organization) and acknowledged scientific organisations such as the Robert-Koch-Institut.


Trade fairs in Germany stand for best possible health protection in order to secure the internationally appreciated feature of connecting visitors and exhibitors from all over the world.
