On 13 March 2020, the Federal Council extended and broadened the ban on events throughout Switzerland until the end of April 2020. The BERNEXPO GROUPE is therefore unable to hold the BEA spring trade fair. Other fairs and numerous guest events on the BERNEXPO exhibition premises will also be affected by the official measures until further notice.
In addition to the BEA, two other BERNEXPO GROUPE events are affected by the Swiss Federal Council’s decision: the Suisse Toy fair, which was scheduled to take place at the same time as the BEA, and the ZUHAUSE BERN home fair, which was to be held from 26 to 29 March 2020. The BEA and Suisse Toy fairs will definitely not be held in 2020 but an alternative date for ZUHAUSE BERN is under consideration. The new date will be decided after consultation with authorities, partners and exhibitors and, if possible, communicated in April 2020.
The BERNEXPO GROUPE deeply regrets the cancellation of the BEA and Suisse Toy events. This is a tough decision for all those who have been working hard to ensure that these events are a success. At the same time, the BERNEXPO GROUPE fully supports the Swiss Federal Council’s decision, because safety and health is its primary concern.
