The BOE International will be postponed from January to June 2021. In order to ensure the necessary planning security for all participants, the international trade show for experience marketing, which for years has been the annual kick-off for the industry at the trade fair location Dortmund, will thus take place in summer for the first time.
Previous date BOE: January 20 - 21, 2021
New date BOE Red2021: June 9 - 10, 2021
Together with an alliance of the most influential initiatives and associations of the German event industry, the BOE is working for a quick return to a new corona normality for the exhibition and event industry. To send a signal to politicians and the public, the next edition of the trade show will be held under the name BOE Red2021.
Your BOE exhibition team
Can a trade show even be held during the COVID 19 pandemic?
In order to minimize the risk of infection and to ensure the safety of all parties involved, we have developed a detailed infection protection and hygiene concept together with the authorities. Due to the defined measures there are some changes in the process and the structure of the BOE. For example, the corridors will be widened to maintain the recommended distance of 1.5 m. In order to be able to track who was on site on which day in the event of an incident, each individual visitor should register online and indicate the day of the visit. According to the current status, there will be a requirement to wear a mask on the entire site, with the exception of seats, in order to better protect all those involved. More hygiene will reduce the risk of infection, so cleaning cycles will be increased throughout the site. The implementation of the hygiene concept has already been tested and has proven successful at trade fairs like the CREATIVA.
We hope that the development of the Corona pandemic will change for the better by June 2021, but we are positioned with all measures to offer you the best possible protection during your visit to the trade show.
