For NürnbergMesse, the safety and security of exhibitors, visitors and employees is absolutely paramount. NürnbergMesse is therefore in close consultation with the security authorities and in response to the recent terrorist attacks and the changed security situation in Europe is constantly adapting its own security measures.
According to the assessment by the authorities, although there are no indications of an increased threat or risk at the present time, NürnbergMesse is once again tightening its already very strict security measures for its events. For this reason, an increased number of uniformed as well as plain-clothes security personnel are operating.
At all entrances random bag controls are being conducted using mobile scanners. In addition, the control measures at the access points are being intensified. A blanket video surveillance operation is also guaranteed. If required, the precautionary measures will be constantly adapted to the changed security situation.
