Covid-19 & the Leipzig Book Fair

Organisers have cancelled the Leipzig Book Fair 2022 edition. They have opted for such a decision after taking into consideration the current pandemic situation. The latest edition of the event will occur as a live exhibition. It will take place between 27.04.2023 and 30.04.2023 at the Leipzig Messe. Due to the current epidemiological situation in Germany, the venue will not feature strict Covid-19 safety measures. Attendees should take into consideration that they will not be asked to show 3G entry documents upon arrival in the country. Yet, if they are arriving from a virus area of concern, they will have to quarantine for 14 days. Currently, there are no countries with such a designation.
