Questions related to the IGW cancellation 2022

Does Messe Berlin reimburse the costs that the exhibitors have had up to now?

Messe Berlin GmbH has always emphasized that the International Green Week 2022 will only take place if the pandemic situation allows it. Please understand that Messe Berlin GmbH can therefore not assume any costs that you may incur due to the cancellation of the event. These include, for example, cancellation costs for travel or hotel rooms as well as costs for stand construction. It is the exhibitor's responsibility to check whether reimbursement or goodwill arrangements are offered by the respective contractual partner.

Do exhibitors have to cancel their stand rental, exhibitor passes, Media Package or AUMA contribution?

Messe Berlin GmbH will not invoice exhibitors for any expenses incurred in connection with the International Green Week. For exhibitors, this means that no invoice will be issued for stand rental, exhibitor passes, Media Package or AUMA fee. Cancellation of services already booked will be automatic. Exhibitors do not have to take any action themselves.

What happens to the costs for renting rooms?

Reservations or bookings of conference and ancillary rooms that have not yet been invoiced will be automatically cancelled free of charge. For hybrid or purely digital events, we will contact you for detailed arrangements. If you have any queries, please contact

Are you planning a digital event instead?

With the 15th Future Forum on Rural Development(german link only), the Federal Ministry of Agriculture is offering a virtual platform for exchange, discussion and knowledge transfer on the topic of "Strong volunteerism - for a good life in the countryside" on January 26 and 27, 2022.
