This year’s Food ingredients Europe and Health ingredients Europe, in Frankfurt, Germany, in December, are set to go ahead.

The event will be organized in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standard, developed in response to COVID-19.

Show organizer, Informa Markets, said it will employ enhanced measures to ensure the highest levels of hygiene and safety. 

The show takes place at Messe Frankfurt from December 1-3.

AllSecure is an industry-wide standard developed in cooperation with partners, such as the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI), venues, suppliers and relevant authorities for exhibition organizers to adopt and provide reassurance to attendees that events are being held in a safe and controlled environment. For Fi Europe co-located with Hi Europe the Informa Markets team is in contact and consultation with the City of Frankfurt, the State of Hesse and Messe Frankfurt.

Informa AllSecure is how the industry-wide standard will be adopted at Informa events and features 35 detailed protocols, covering cleaning and hygiene measures (prior to stand build, before event opening and during the show), physical distancing following the crowd density standards as set by the State of Hesse, communication across all channels and platforms, and protect and detect in collaboration with the local health authorities.

“The health and safety of everyone involved at the event is our number one priority, and we wanted to communicate our plans as early as possible. We have been monitoring the situation closely, we are in daily communication with the senior management of Messe Frankfurt with whom we are closerly observing the trade shows already taking place in Germany and learning from those.  We are very grateful for the encouragement and support we have received from all partners and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to the event,”​ said Natasha Berrow, group director food at Informa Markets.
