Perimeter Protection Newsroom
To accommodate the wishes of exhibitors and also give all participants the opportunity to plan with confidence, NürnbergMesse has decided to postpone Perimeter Protection until 2023. The decision was taken in close consultation with exhibitors and partner entities Gütegemeinschaft Metallzauntechnik (Metal Fence Technology Association), Verband für Sicherheitstechnik (Association for Security Technology, VfS) and UAV DACH. Exhibitions and congresses have been held again at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg since September 2021, and exhibitors and visitors have responded extremely positively and with a sense of responsibility. These events are currently being held in accordance with the provisions of Bavaria’s Infection Protection Measures Ordinance (Infektionsschutzmassnahmenverordnung) and the new German Protection against Infection Act (Infektionsschutzgesetz). Exhibitions and congresses can continue to be held under this currently applicable general legal framework.
“We have gone along with the wish expressed by our exhibitors to postpone this event until January 2023,” comments Thomas Preutenborbeck, a member of the NürnbergMesse management team. “Although we can continue to run exhibitions, our customers still have a strong sense of uncertainty. Given the dynamic nature of the infection situation and its effects right now, we unfortunately cannot rule out the possibility that legislation at a national and state level will have to be adapted or made more stringent at short notice. Unfortunately there is no way of telling how the infection situation will develop in the coming weeks. And that means we cannot foresee the situation for mid-January 2022 with any certainty, particularly with regard to the spread of the new Omicron variant of the virus. We would prefer to avoid having to make the decision to postpone the event in consultation with our exhibitors too close to the scheduled event date. So that is why we have taken that step now, before the Christmas break, to enable everyone involved to plan with confidence.”
“We are very grateful for the many candid and constructive conversations we have had with industry representatives in recent days, which has helped us with our decision-making process,” says Frank Venjakob, Director Exhibition Perimeter Protection. “We are now joining our exhibitors in looking forward to Perimeter Protection in January 2023.”
