The drupa trade fair scheduled for 16-26 June 2020 will be postponed
to 20-30 April 2021. In doing so, Messe Düsseldorf is following the recommendation of the crisis management team of the German Federal Government to take into account the principles of the Robert Koch Institute when assessing the risk of major events. Based on this recommendation and the recent significant increase in the number of people infected with the new corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), including in Europe, Messe Düsseldorf has reassessed the situation.
In addition, there is the general ruling issued by the city of Düsseldorf on
11 March 2020, in which major events with more than 1,000 participants present at the same time are generally prohibited.
