Messe Stuttgart is closely monitoring the current situation relating to Covid-19 (Corona virus SARS-CoV-2) very closely. To this end, we are in close contact with the responsible authorities in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg and are taking account of the requirements and recommendations regarding the staging of events. The safety, health and wellbeing of all people who come to us is our main concern and has the highest priority.

The cancellation, postponement or reorganisation of events is the responsibility of the organiser. As the operator of the exhibition grounds, Messe Stuttgart supports the organisers with questions within the scope of all its possibilities.

Currently valid: General ruling of the Esslingen District Office
After the incidence number had exceeded the early warning level of 35 at the beginning of October and the intervention level of more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week by 7 October, the district office responsible for the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre (Esslingen) issued a general order restricting events. This states that trade fairs, exhibitions and congresses may continue to be held only if no more than 100 people take part in them, employees and other participants are not counted. Exceptions are granted by the public order office of the district administration office in individual cases under strict conditions (To the press release).

Corona Ordinance for trade fairs, exhibitions and congresses in Baden-Württemberg
On 23rd June 2020, the Baden-Württemberg government confirmed that trade fairs with more than 500 people will once again be allowed to take place in Baden-Württemberg from 1st September 2020. This is based on the premise that the infection situation will continue to ease and in compliance with appropriate hygiene regulations.

Efforts are being made to find individual solutions for the various events held by Messe Stuttgart and guest event organisers which are scheduled to take place during this period. Further details will be released on the websites of the respective events. You will also find a small overview in the following tab under "Are there alternative dates for postponed fairs?".
