Interzoo & Covid-19

Messe Nuremberg will welcome attendees to Interzoo 2024 from 07.05.2024 to 10.05.2024. The venue will not implement a strict Covid-19 safety plan. This is due to Germany lifting its domestic restrictions pertaining to the coronavirus in April 2022. Attendees will be highly encouraged by the organisers to follow recommendations such as performing regular hand disinfections. Participants should note that after 01.06.2022, the country will not have travel limitations in place. Thus, they will not have to present 3G entry documents.
