Authorities prohibit major events in North Rhine-Westphalia with more than 1000 visitors

On 10 March 2020, the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia issued a decree in accordance with the Infection Protection Act, according to which no major events with more than 1,000 expected visitors may be held from now on. This is a reaction by the responsible authorities to the increasing spread of the coronavirus in Germany.

In the Westfalenhalle GmbH, preparations for the case that has now occurred have been in full swing over the past few weeks in order to find alternative dates for 2020 and 2021, on which events to be postponed can be made up for in the Westfalenhalle. The Westfalenhalle is confident that the majority of the events affected can be made up for.

"There has never been such an exceptional situation for the entire event industry and therefore also for our venue, and we are deeply moved by the events of the last few weeks. The health of all visitors, organisers and employees is our highest priority. We will inform as quickly as possible through our channels which concerts and events are affected by a postponement or have already been successfully rescheduled," confirms Sabine Loos, Managing Director of the Westfalenhallen Unternehmensgruppe GmbH.
