Our contribution to your success at electronica 2020


Messe München

20% Corona Support

Building good relationships requires more than just words. After all, actions speak louder than words. This principle applies far beyond business and becomes particularly important in times of crisis. The past few months have shown the importance of close cooperation and active support—and both will continue to be of great importance in the future.
Therefore, we have decided to offer Corona support to all exhibitors at electronica 2020 as a token of solidarity in economically challenging times. We want to give you an opportunity to intensify your visitor acquisition efforts and to invite even more contacts to the world’s leading trade fair for electronics in Munich.
The amount of the Corona support depends on your participation fee (stand space) mentioned in the corresponding admission invoice. We will contribute 20 percent of the invoiced amount. For this purpose, we will issue a one-off credit note after final invoicing. This credit will be issued under just one condition: Your participation at electronica 2020 as an exhibitor.
Nice to have you with us! And one thing is clear: Exhibitions are a very effective tool to add momentum to a recovering economy! And nothing is as effective as an exhbition when it comes to networking and finalizing concrete deals. We are looking forward to finally get in touch again!

Hygiene and safety plan electronica 2020


Messe Münche GmbH, in cooperation with the government of the Free State of Bavaria, is currently developing bespoke health and safety protocols that will allow us to ensure the success of electronica despite the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to host electronica 2020 at the Munich exhibition center, the following safety goals must be achieved:

Maintenance of safe distances

Comprehensive hygiene and health protection standards

Contact tracing protocols in compliance with the specifications of the Robert Koch Institute (Germany’s national public health institute)

All further information regarding the hygiene and safety plan for electronica 2020 can be found on our website.

Stand construction rules for electronica 2020

In order to preserve the character of electronica as a communication and business trade show, exhibitors generally are requested to ensure an open stand design. Based on current stand construction recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to make it easier for you to plan your stand construction.
In order to give you the opportunity to implement the necessary precautions for stand construction, we will waive the openness rule for electronica 2020. This rule states that “it is permissible to erect closed walls if they do not take up more than 70 % of the total length of the respective stand side, and completely closed walls may not exceed 6 m in length”.
For electronica 2020, you are free to adapt your stand construction to the current situation. Nevertheless, we ask you to keep your stand construction as open and friendly as possible.

Flexibility for cancellation dates Munich hotel industry

Munich Hotel Alliance

The Munich hotel industry has assured us flexibility in terms of cancellation dates. For example, the “Munich Hotel Alliance“—an association of the leading hotels in Munich—has adjusted its cancellation conditions for trade fair group contingents for electronica:

Existing direct group bookings can be cancelled free of charge up to two months before the trade fair if the trade fair is cancelled.

If the free cancellation period has already expired, exhibitors are requested to discuss contract changes individually with the respective hotel.

We are still in discussions with other hotel associations and will inform you as soon as we have achieved similar positive results.

The analytica 2020 takes place

Many thanks to all of you for your dedicated support for the corona-related postponement of analytica 2020. Today we would like to inform you about some positive developments regarding the trade fair in Munich:
According to the Bavarian Ministry of Economics trade fairs in Bavaria may be held again from September 1, 2020. Therefore, we are looking ahead with confidence and are pleased that the industry will soon be able to make personal contact again. Messe München will restart events with our China exhibitions in early July.
The Munich hotel industry has assured us flexibility in terms of cancellation dates. For example, the „Munich Hotel Alliance“ – an association of the leading hotels in Munich – has adjusted its cancellation conditions for trade fair group contingents for analytica:

  • Existing direct group bookings can be cancelled free of charge up to two months before the trade fair if the trade fair is cancelled.
  • If the free cancellation period has already expired, exhibitors are requested to discuss contract changes individually with the respective hotel.

We are still in discussion with other hotel associations and will inform you as soon as we have achieved similar positive results.
In addition, we would like to inform you that we are currently working together with the authorities on a safety and hygiene concept that will be used at our autumn events. In addition to maintaining distances, traceability of contact persons and general hygiene and health protection rules, this also involves recommendations for stand design and stand catering.
We expect the final requirements of the authorities from mid-June 2020, we will inform you about this in this exhibitor newsletter as soon as possible. Up-to-date information is available on our website www.analytica.de.

For more info, you may also contact Ms. Jackie Diola of ECCP at jackie.diola@eccp.com.

Please note: Due to the postponement of analytica 2020, some dates and deadlines affecting your preparations for the exhibition have changed. This also applies to order deadlines of the exhibitor shop, which will of course continue to be available to you. See deadlines here.


analytica 2020: Bioanalysis for personalized medicine

  • Globally unrivaled exhibition of bioanalysis and biotechnology
  • Forum Biotech: Inspiration and practical tips for the biological lab
  • Expanded Finance Days with focus day on personalized medicine

The world’s leading trade fair analytica provides more comprehensive information about the rapid progress in bioanalysis and biotechnology than any other event does. Know-how for the daily work in the biological lab is to be had in the Forum Biotech in Hall A3. This is also where the Finance Days with the focus day Personalized Medicine take place.

From high-throughput genotyping through revolutionary concepts for cancer diagnostics to characterization of biopharmaceuticals: Visitors to analytica 2020 can look forward to a wide variety of innovations for the biotech and healthcare sectors. “analytica drives progress in bioanalysis and biotechnology by offering the industry a presentation and information platform that is unique in the world,” says Messe München’s analytica Exhibition Director Susanne Grödl. The extensive supporting program at analytica moreover makes it easy for all participants to make new contacts and maintain existing ones.

analytica forums: More efficiency in the biological lab

In the Forum Biotech in Hall A3, there will be insider knowledge for the biological lab presented on the first two days of the fair: The exhibitor New England Biolabs presents a novel genotyping method that creates genetic fingerprints at high throughput—ideal for animal or plant breeding, biobanks, and pharmaceutical research. The Forum Biotech takes up the trend in the pharmaceutical industry towards biotechnologically produced drugs as well. Thus, Brookhaven Instruments will address characterization of monoclonal antibodies using dynamic light scattering (DLS). Agilent, in turn, is going to explain how liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry can be used to examine biopharmaceuticals.

In addition to these and many other lectures in the Forum Biotech, the other analytica forums also provide inspiration for bioanalysts: In the Forum Digital Transformation in Hall B2, visitors will experience a live demonstration of digitalized biological sample preparation, and in the Forum Laboratory & Analysis in Hall B1, Postnova Analytics is going to present the still relatively new technique of field flow fractionation, which is suitable not only for nanoparticles and microplastics, but also for viruses and biomolecules.

Personalized medicine in focus

Due to the great interest in health-related topics, analytica once more invites visitors to the Focus Day Personalized Medicine. It will take place in the context of the Finance Days at the Forum Biotech. Experts from the biotech, pharmaceutical and diagnostics sectors will address the current status and future direction of individualized therapies. Keynote speaker Dr. Dr. Saskia Biskup will open the event with a talk on personalized medicine from various perspectives. She runs a human genetics specialist practice in Tübingen, is the managing director of the diagnostics company CeGaT, and also does research at the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research in Tübingen.

Some individualized treatments are already in use, but most concepts are still in the development phase. At the analytica Conference, renowned researchers from all over the world will discuss their latest insights on personalized medicine, diagnostics, and many other areas of modern analytics. The agenda includes sessions on immunoassays and biomarkers, molecular diagnostics of allergies and asthma, clinical mass spectrometry, and the promising technology of liquid biopsy, which detects cancer cells in blood.

Expanded Finance Days: Expert tips on financing

Apart from research institutes, it is mainly start-ups that drive the biotech sector. “Their spirit of innovation is unbroken, but the search for capital remains a challenge,” emphasizes analytica Exhibition Director Grödl. “We have expanded the analytica Finance Days to provide young companies with even more detailed information about financing models, and to get them into contact with investors.” They will start in the Forum Biotech with an opening keynote by Marc Filerman, CEO of the German Accelerators Life Science. On the following day, the event will continue with an impulse talk entitled “From Start-up to Global Player”, as well as panels on financing trends, IPOs and more.

In a word: As the world’s leading trade fair, analytica covers all aspects of modern bioanalysis and biotechnology. Almost ⅓ of the exhibitors offer products and services in the field of biotechnology. Analytica currently features a total of 1265 registered exhibitors, thus already having set a new exhibitor record.

IDEM 2020 to be a digital experience

Image may contain: text

In consideration of the circumstances brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers of IDEM 2020 are moving the event for this edition to an online experience.

Because we value all participants and wish to honour the dental community’s need for continuous education and learning, the Singapore Dental Association, together with Koelnmesse, co-organisers of IDEM 2020, will present the 11th edition of the International Dental Exhibition and Meeting (IDEM 2020) as a wholly digital experience.

“We take the progression of the COVID-19 virus pandemic very seriously and prioritise the health and wellbeing of our partners, attendees and the overall dental community,” says Mathias Kuepper, Managing Director of Koelnmesse Pte. Ltd. “Accordingly, for the 2020 edition of IDEM, we will adapt it into a digital format, so as to align the event to meet suggestions made by relevant authorities and entities.”

IDEM 2020 will shift to an online platform for this edition alone, permitting participants from across the globe to safely connect, network and engage. The platform will provide exhibitors with the opportunity to showcase their products and solutions and at the same time offer pre-recorded and live streamed conference sessions. Dental professionals can still acquire Continuing Education (CE) Points, verified by the Singapore Dental Council, by viewing pre-recorded and livestreamed educational sessions and lectures.

“Despite the situation we have with a constantly evolving global pandemic, through IDEM 2020 we still strive to connect with the dental community. With this adapted format, we remain committed to provide adequate courses in a safe and responsible manner and are confident that our attendees worldwide will be able to effectively engage, learn, gain valuable insights and qualify for CE points,” says Dr. Lim Lii, President of the Singapore Dental Association.

IDEM 2020 will take place on 19 June to 19 August 2020. Register through this link or contact Mr. Noli nicanor of ECCP at noli.nicanor@eccp.com.

IDEM 2020 was scheduled to take place at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre. IDEM will return to Singapore in its established format for the next edition.
