This is the only way we can offer the customary reliability and security so that we can master the crisis together and really take off again next year," continued Frese.
The Anuga team is currently very positive about the next edition in the autumn of 2021. In the scope of the current early bird campaign, numerous international exhibitors from 60 countries have already registered. In order to additionally increase the range of Anuga, in terms of the visitors and reach as many relevant target groups as possible, there are going to be digital offers and new formats at the coming Anuga, which supplement and round off the physical trade fair. In addition to ensure more safety during the trade fair, Koelnmesse has decided to plan all further trade fairs in the year 2021 in a Corona-conform manner. Koelnmesse has developed a concept under the hashtag #B-SAFE4business, which makes provisions for all measures relating to hygiene, medical care and organisation. These measures are regularly evaluated together with the city, state and health authorities after taking the current COVID-19 situation into account and in the case of positive developments re-adapted. Cognitions and experiences gained from outbound fairs such as Thaifex Anuga Asia in September 2020 and May 2021 or Anufood China in April 2021, which are being accompanied by digital offers for the first time, will flow into the preparations of Anuga.
