New date for elektrotechnik 21

The elektrotechnik 2021 is postponed. This is due to the recent pandemic development. National travel restrictions, the tightening of the current corona regulations and the imposed lockdown result in persistent imponderables. 

In order to ensure the necessary planning security for all those involved, a new date for the trade fair was found in cooperation with the Fachverband Elektro- und Informationstechnische Handwerke NRW (FEH NRW) as the technical and conceptual sponsor of elektrotechnik, and the trade fair advisory board.

The health of all participants has top priority. For example, Messe Dortmund, in cooperation with the responsible authorities, developed the detailed hygiene protection concept #BeSafe over a period of months, which enabled the successful start of the trade fair at the Dortmund location at the beginning of the 4th quarter of 2020 and will now be used at future trade fairs.

With the clear message against a cancellation and for a new date in September, elektrotechnik will thus have the opportunity to present itself again in 2021 as a central and successful contact point for specialists from the electrical trade, industry and wholesale, from companies of the energy suppliers and network operators as well as planning, architecture and engineering offices.

Previous date elektrotechnik: February 17th - 19th, 2021

New date for elektrotechnik: September 29th - October 1st 2021


Can a trade fair 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 elektrotechnik. 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 September 2021, but we are positioned with all measures to offer you the best possible protection during your visit to the fair.
