It is now official that the leading international trade fair Interpack will be postponed to take place from 25 February to 3 March 2021 instead of May 2020. The decision to postpone the trade fair respects the German governments restrictions that major events with more than 1000 participants are prohibited. The aim with this restriction is to slow down the spread of the corona virus so that the health system can continue to function properly. For Messe Düsseldorf in order to fulfil their responsibility for risk prevention they share the same goal of minimizing the risk of infection at major events.
