Cologne is Ready for You

Because of the coronavirus crisis, the event sector, along with many others, is facing a large number of challenges related to the planning of trade fairs, congresses, conventions and other events. Our top priority, along with the smooth running of events, is your health. That’s why we’ve held meetings with relevant players from the MICE sector and had detailed discussions of the new rules and regulations for events. Many of our partners from Cologne’s meeting sector who have been operating in Cologne and the surrounding region for years are working together as a team to master the current challenges.

Through their close cooperation, they have developed concepts that enable them to once again hold trade fairs, conventions and other events in conformity with the regulations of the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. In addition to coronavirus checklists and compliance with the generally applicable minimum requirements for hygiene and protection against infection, we and our partners from the event sector offer a wide range of measures and services to ensure your safety.

Your trust in us and in our concepts is important to us. We want you to be able to participate in the events without any hesitation, whether you’re doing so online from your home or in person.

Our partners — Koelnmesse, Taxi Ruf, the Lanxess arena, the 25hours Hotel Köln and KAISERSCHOTE Feinkost Catering — are looking to the future with confidence. Here they show that they are ready to welcome you to Cologne and have made the essential preparations this requires.
