Statement by Frankfurter Buchmesse on the coronavirus
30 March, 4.20 p.m. CET. The information on this news site is updated on a regular basis.
Juergen Boos, Director of Frankfurter Buchmesse, about the current situation
Frankfurter Buchmesse (14-10 October 2020) would like to express its concern for all those who have been affected by the new coronavirus. Our thoughts are with all those colleagues from the publishing industry who have been affected. As decisions are made, the health and safety of our exhibitors and employees is always of utmost importance.
Based on current information available, we expect the Frankfurter Buchmesse to continue to take place from 14 to 18 October 2020. At the present time, we cannot foresee what health measures will apply in October, but our whole team is working steadily on planning halls, programmes and projects based on the idea that we will be able to host everyone in the fall. We are aware that a trade fair involves economic risks for all parties involved and we will therefore make decisions in the interests of our customers with regard to all measures and further planning. You can be assured that we will keep our communication on this subject consistently up-to-date and transparent.
Our exhibitors can get in touch with our Key Account Management and Sales teams regarding any questions about their stand presences at the 2020 fair.
