Trade fairs start again

The Bavarian State Government decided on May 27 that from September 1 on trade fairs can be held again. The ban imposed on major events by the Federal Government and the States on June 17, which will continue to be in force until at least the end of October, does, by contrast, not relate to trade fairs, but explicitly to such events where it is not possible to trace contacts and comply with hygiene regulations. Among such major events, the Federal Government and the States reckon, according to the decision of 6 May, which continues to be in force, „e.g. folk and other festivals, major sporting events with spectators, major concerts, village, town, street or parish fairs, wine fests, or Schützenfeste (festivals of the traditional riflemen’s associations)”.

By contrast, the events of Messe München will be subject to a comprehensive protection and hygiene concept, which is currently being coordinated with the Bavarian State Government and the relevant public health authorities.
