The organisers of IMEX Frankfurt have announced they are still “confidently” planning for the show to go ahead as planned in May.
Group’s Chairman Ray Bloom and CEO Carina Bauer issued a statement in response to “major events cancelling across Europe”
“We know that many in our community are asking questions about this year’s IMEX in Frankfurt,” they said.
“With IMEX due to take place in the middle of May (still 10 weeks away), the IMEX team continues to plan confidently for the show. We currently have NO plans to postpone or cancel.
“We’re very grateful for the ongoing support of our exhibitors and attendees who continue to register and plan for the show and we’ve not experienced any substantial impacts so far.”
The organisers said they were in close contact with their partners in Germany, as well as the relevant health authorities.
“As this unprecedented situation is changing every day, we remain watchful but also focused on delivering what is an extremely important event for the global business events community,” they said.
“Mindful of our duty of care, we’re also carefully considering and consulting with experts on what the appropriate sanitary, health and other measures should be. Ray and I assure you that all appropriate measures will be in place at IMEX.”
