IDS is going ahead as planned in Cologne from 09 to 13 March 2021. That is our declared objective, and we are rigorously implementing measures to protect everyone involved so that we can achieve it. The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff are our highest priority.
As a trade fair with a B2B focus, IDS is fundamentally different to sporting events and public fairs and festivals – a fact we will continue to highlight in our communications with the public and political decision makers. The above-mentioned measures include appropriate hygiene, maintaining sufficient distance between people at all times, and strict guidelines for the processes carried out at entrances, in the halls and at the stands. We are relying on the professional conduct of exhibitors and visitors, we will carry out a full registration of participants, and we will utilise the flexibility and size of our site as well as the opportunities offered by our digital guidance systems.
Thanks to this package of measures, we can all look forward to a successful IDS 2021!
