Gemworld Munich is set to go ahead this autumn, taking place between 30 October and 1 November.
The announcement comes after the Bavarian State Government confirmed that trade fairs could still go ahead from 1 September with appropriate safety and hygiene measures in place.
Organisers said they had “prepared for this moment”, working closely alongside the Munich trade fair company and authorities, ensuring the event is ‘Corona-fit’.
All measures are based on three basic rules, including social distancing, observing hygiene rules, such as PPE and washing hands, and registration and traceability.
The contact details and time of entry must be registered for all visitors, while visitor numbers will be limited to the ratio one visitor per 10m² of event space.
Visitors are also recommended to travel to the trade event in their own vehicles. In addition, temperature tests are also set to take place.
In a statement, organisers said: “With Gemworld Munich taking place, we would like to give all exhibitors and visitors, who didn’t see each other for so long, the opportunity to exchange and to meet “live” with colleagues and friends.
“Our top priority here is the safety and health of all participants – even if this is necessarily associated with some restrictions and changes this year.”
They added: “Regardless of these restrictions, you can look forward to a diverse and interesting Gemworld Munich: Almost all exhibitors registered so far have agreed to participate despite the crisis.
“Together with them, we are all the more looking forward to welcoming you as a visitor to Munich in autumn under these special conditions.”
Gemworld Munich welcomes around 350 exhibitors from over 30 countries, and welcomes more than 7,000 trade visitors, jewellers, goldsmiths and jewellery designers every year.
