Additive Manufacturing Trade Fair Formnext 2021: Only for recovered and vaccinated visitors
Germany — Formnext 2021 will be open to those who have recovered from or been vaccinated against Covid-19. The decision was reached by the organiser, Mesago Messe Frankfurt, in consultation with the Exhibitor Advisory Board.
Based on the legal framework of the federal state of Hesse, Formnext will take place under certain conditions that allow organisers the choice of applying the German “3G rule” (access for tested, recovered and vaccinated persons) or the German “2G rule” (recovered and vaccinated persons only).
“We decided that the 2G rule ensures more safety, freedom and convenience at the exhibition grounds,” explains Petra Haarburger, President of Mesago Messe Frankfurt. According to the “2G rule”, only those who have been vaccinated against or have recovered from Covid-19 may attend an event. There is then no need to wear a mask or adhere to social distancing rules. “We were glad to take advantage of this rule in Hesse because it allows our exhibitors and visitors to enjoy an authentic trade show experience and hold normal conversations,” adds Sascha Wenzler, Vice President of Mesago Messe Frankfurt's Formnext event.
The rule is mandatory for all participating in Formnext. It applies to all of the exhibitors' and trade show organizer's employees as well as to all service providers. Checkpoints will be set up on the exhibition grounds in Frankfurt to ensure compliance with the rule.
