Spielwarenmesse® is traditionally held at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre at the start of each year. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, an early decision was taken not to proceed with the event from 27 to 31 January 2021. Instead, organiser Spielwarenmesse eG has postponed the industry’s leading international trade fair to the summer for the first time in the event’s history. The rising number of infections and further travel restrictions were the key factors behind this decision. Given the significant change in the prevailing conditions and concern for the health of all involved, a Spielwarenmesse® of the usual quality could not be guaranteed in late January.
Forwarding agents contracted by exhibitors can apply for an exemption permit for highways in Germany. This permit must be requested in the district in which the journey begins. In case of border crossings, the public order office closest to the border crossing is responsible. Exhibitors and forwarding agents can obtain an exemption permit for trips between the truck parking areas for the Spielwarenmesse® and the exhibition grounds on site at the exhibition grounds.
