On 21 April 2020, in order to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2 the Senate of Berlin imposed a ban on staging large events, in particular trade fairs with an attendance of more than 5000 visitors, until 24 October. As a result, it will not be possible for Messe Berlin to hold the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology InnoTrans as originally planned from 22 to 25 September 2020. After consulting with the co-founding associations and the leading market players Messe Berlin has decided to postpone InnoTrans 2020. ”The health and safety of exhibitors, trade visitors and all the employees at the trade fair have the utmost priority. For this reason InnoTrans will take place from 27 to 30 April 2021“, said Kerstin Schulz, director of InnoTrans.
