After the initial announcement made about the suspension of events in Russia and Belarus, the company gave an update stating it is also now excluding exhibitors from Russia and Belarus.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine poses an unprecedented threat to peaceful coexistence in Europe. Messe Frankfurt initially made the announcement that it supports all sanction measures taken by the Federal Government. And against this backdrop, the Messe Frankfurt Board of Management decided to suspend events of its subsidiary Messe Frankfurt RUS until further notice.
More recently Messe Frankfurt added that visitor marketing in Russia and Belarus is suspended until further notice.
The update said: “In view of the dramatic situation in Ukraine, Messe Frankfurt has decided not to admit Russian exhibitors as well as exhibitors from Belarus to its trade fairs until further notice.”
This applies to all countries of the Messe Frankfurt Group that have joined the sanction measures.
