Fruit Logistica can welcome exhibitors or trade visitors from anywhere in the world on 5-7 April 2022, provided they are vaccinated against, recovered from, or tested for Covid-19.
After an extended period of restrictions that were imposed across Europe due to the pandemic, last week saw Germany and other European countries relax those rules.
From 4 March, restrictions on hotel stays and restaurant visits in Germany, for example, will be lifted.
By 20 March, other measures relating to large-scale events come to an end. This gives Fruit Logistica the chance to welcome everyone who has been vaccinated, recovered or tested as appropriate.
However, wearing masks will be mandatory in the exhibition halls and on public transport. 'The new rulings ensure that we, as organisers, and of course our exhibitors and trade visitors, enjoy the ultimate sense of planning certainty that we so need,” said a spokesperson for the event.
“We are pleased and relieved to know that those who have not been vaccinated with an EU-recognised vaccine will also be able to join the event. Given the international nature of Fruit Logistica, this is an important prerequisite for a truly successful event.' The event’s stand registration deadline has been extended, which means exhibitors who cancelled bookings due to the previous uncertainty still have time to register until 15 March. One such exhibitor that chose to return in the past few days is Dutch company The Greenery.
Marketing and communications manager Harm-Jan Eikelenboom explained the decision: “The Greenery loves maintaining contact with its existing and new customers and suppliers. Now that we can meet in person, we are happy to be back at Fruit Logistica. We look forward to meeting the fruit and vegetable world again!” The Fruit Logistica ticket shop is now open, so trade visitors can also start to plan their trip to Berlin.
Tickets are only available online, however. Three-day tickets are priced at €85, and single-day tickets €45.
