embedded world 2020 takes place as planned

embedded world 2020 will take place as planned from 25-27 February 2020 at the Nürnberg exhibition centre. NürnbergMesse is taking a comprehensive package of measures to ensure that exhibitors and visitors can participate in the exhibition safely and comfortably. Two world-leading exhibitions with over 150,000 participants (exhibitors and visitors) from all over the world have been held successfully in Nürnberg since the end of January. The preventive protective measures for our guests at the Nuremberg exhibition centre have had excellent results. A large number of other major international trade fairs have also been held in Germany in recent weeks.

Update 19.02.2020

The Federal Ministry of Health has ordered special security measures for the entry of air travellers from China:

What arrangements have been made?
The health authorities at the airports in Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin are collaborating closely with the Robert Koch Institute and the Federal Ministry of Transport and have prepared information material for travellers arriving from China. Additional, possible measures will continually be under joint scrutiny depending on the risk assessment for Germany.

What measures have been put in place to recognise suspected cases as early as possible?
_Pilots on flights from China are are required to inform air traffic control on the health status of their passengers before landing.
_Travellers from the affected areas will be required to fill in landing cards giving information on their flight and stating where they will be staying for the 30 days following landing. Airlines will distribute the landing cards and transmit the completed cards to the public health offices for safekeeping.
_Doctors, clinics and laboratories are required to report any cases where there is reasonable suspicion of the disease.
_The Robert Koch Institute is being granted even greater coordination powers. This has already been decided by mutual understanding.

Statement by the CEOs of NürnbergMesse (18.02.2020)

“We are pleased that the embedded industry world will come together again in Nuremberg next week”: With these words, the CEOs of NürnbergMesse, Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, characterised the mood of many exhibitors one week before the start of embedded world. That is because the world-leading exhibition for embedded systems is the highly relevant meeting place of embedded technology enterprises offering components, modules and complete systems, hardware and software and services. Nevertheless, Dr. Roland Fleck can understand the questions of some exhibitors on the subject of the coronavirus and stressed the following point: “We have already successfully held three world-leading exhibitions with more than 150,000 exhibitors and visitors this year without experiencing any health issues. Thus, our visitors can expect highly professional conditions and valuable experience at embedded world.” And the registrations of more than 1.000 exhibitors prove that embedded world is still the industry’s central meeting place in 2020. Fleck’s CEO colleague Peter Ottmann made the following point: “Exhibitions are always a reflection of the economy. Naturally, we regret the fact that some customers cancelled on short notice to the coronavirus problem. Precisely because we place the highest priority on the health of our customers and employees alike, we carefully weighed the various aspects involved and arrived at the following conclusion, after consultation with our health authorities: embedded world will open its doors on Tuesday of next week, as planned.”

In this context, it is clear that the recent cancellation of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona has made many companies nervous and for that reason it is also important to repeat the statement of Philip Harting, the Chairman of AUMA, the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry: “All trade fairs in Germany will be held as planned.” The prerequisite for this a large package of professional measures defined in consultation with the German health authorities. These include:

Heightened cleaning and disinfection measures at all highly frequented placed such as catering areas, surfaces, handrails, restrooms, entrances and exits, public touchscreens
Much higher availability of disinfection supplies
Information campaigns (“no-handshake policy”) and information about the authorities you can turn to in case of doubt.
Sensitisation and training of all personnel related to standard personal preventive measures such as personal hygiene, frequency of use of disinfectant products.
Qualified physicians and paramedics in our first-aid centres are well prepared for possible cases of infection and are available to answer questions on site, with the assistance of interpreters.
If a case of possible infection occurs during the trade fair or event, all spatial and organisational precautions have been taken to ensure immediate remedial measures, both in the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre and in the city of Nuremberg.
