Start of the SPS 2021
Following a year of mainly virtual encounters, we have come to appreciate just how important personal contact and exchange between people is. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic will be felt by all of us for some time to come and currently many countries are facing another massive outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. However, with the newly developed and approved vaccines, which are already being vaccinated, we finally have the means to contain and manage the pandemic.
The start of vaccination in Germany, Europe and many other countries around the world, as well as the planned progress of the vaccination campaigns, makes us very positive for the implementation of the SPS 2021, as broad population groups should be vaccinated in Germany in the second or at the latest in the third quarter of 2021. These are encouraging prospects for a return to normality and face-to-face meetings at trade fairs.
However, in order to provide all participants with the greatest possible safety, our protection and hygiene concept also applies to the SPS 2021. If the situation improves, e.g. after broad population groups have been vaccinated and governmental and regulatory requirements have been loosened, this will also be taken into account in the protection and hygiene concept for the SPS 2021. We will inform you regularly about possible changes or the possible omission of the protection and hygiene concept.
