We take the uncertainties surrounding the corona virus very seriously. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the spread of the novel corona virus SARS-CoV-2 as an "emergency for public health on an international scale". The current situation and unpredictable developments throughout Germany pose particular challenges for all of us. We are in exchange with the regional health authorities and institutions and continuously monitor current developments.
With regard to trade fairs, conferences, congresses and other events, we are always in close dialogue with the organisers. We evaluate each case and context individually and carefully, but as a precautionary measure we have currently decided to cancel all events and trade fair participations, initially until the end of May 2020. We are working flat out on new dates for the postponed trade fairs and events. We will inform you again.
