Amidst news alerts on the coronavirus outbreak, drupa organisers, Messe Düsseldorf have put up a notice that there is “currently no reason to postpone or cancel upcoming trade fairs”.
The organisers are following developments closely, and as of now, the risk of infection in Germany is currently very low. Trade fair preparations will therefore go ahead as planned.
On its website, Messe Düsseldorf has stated the precautions to be taken at the upcoming largest industry exhibition slated to occur from 16 to 26 June in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The organisers assured that there will be a “high level of hygiene, safety and good medical care at the Düsseldorf trade fair grounds as usual”. Drupa will be following procedures developed and set in place at the time of SARS and H1N1.
In addition, Messe Düsseldorf will be providing guests, partners and members of staff with hand disinfection dispensers in the toilets, washrooms, in the area in front of the trade fair doctor’s office/out-patient facility as well as at the entrance concourses.
Messe Düsseldorf has also shortened the cleaning intervals for toilets and washrooms. Contact surfaces on doors, lifts, staircases and moving walkways are now cleaned daily.
