According to the current planning, the SportsInnovation will take place in spring 2022. In the first half of 2021, we will define and communicate the specific period of the event. The original date in March of this year was postponed together with our partners DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga and Sportcast in view of the short and medium-term unpredictable situation.
In a manner similar to what the DFL has done for the Bundesliga match schedule, Messe Düsseldorf is currently doing everything necessary to create the conditions for staging its events with the greatest possible safety. We have drafted a hygiene and infection protection plan based on the current Coronavirus Containment Ordinance of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, with the particular goal of ensuring that provisions such as the necessary health precautions, hygiene measures and social distancing rules are in place for all upcoming events at the Düsseldorf site.
