Face-to-face meetings again possible in 2021
„There is a huge desire to meet face to face. The need to exchange information about new products and trend and market developments is there and also the wish to give business activities a boost after the restart. We can feel the great confidence that our exhibitors have in us to offer the industry a safe trading platform with good prospects of success and we will do everything in our power to achieve this,“ said Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
Distancing is the most important aspect of the protection and hygiene concept and the resulting new planning of the halls and stands: in line with current requirements, the stands have a minimum size of 18 m² in order to maintain 1.5 m distances between exhibitors and visitors. Some aisles between the stands will also be widened considerably. 5 m wide boulevards enable people to walk past each other in both directions. Narrower aisles of 3 m can be safely used as a one-way system.
