The safety of visitors, exhibitors and our own staff is our top priority. We are very happy that we can open our doors again, but at the same time we want to keep the risk of infections as low as possible. In addition, a negative test is only valid for 24 hours. That is why it has been decided to set up a permanent corona check that must be completed at all times before entering the exhibition floor. We hope for your understanding of this security measure.

The role of a trade fair is very important in many ways. There are multiple sectors in the Netherlands who have experienced negative consequences of the pandemic. The Dutch government therefore sees the trade fairs as the drivers of the recovery of the economy. This is where supply and demand come together, tomorrow’s innovations are presented and Dutch business meets. There are industries who will realize up to 40% of their annual sales on a trade fair. Also for other service providers a trade fair is indispensable, for example stand builders. The local and regional economy also benefits when a trade fair or event takes place, such as hotels, taxi services and restaurants.
Recently we have conducted a large-scale survey among visitors to trade fairs taking place this autumn. In total over 6.000 respondents participated on this survey. This showed that 90% of the visitors plan to visit trade fairs again this autumn.
