No Show for Fossils “Fossilien Boerse” in 2020:
There will be no Show for Fossils this year at Leinfelden-Echterdingen .
In face of the current developments, this is certainly not unexpected.
The Covid-19 pandemic has recently gained significant momentum again. Even more than it was the case just a few weeks ago.
More and more regions are currently classified as Corona hotspot areas. The Esslingen district and therefore also Leinfelden-Echterdingen have been a corona risk area since a few days.
There is currently a risk of travel restrictions, quarantine obligations and accommodation bans.
Even before the current escalation, the conditions and requirements for holding a fossil show event had to be described as at least challenging.
With the current social distancing rules alone, the exhibitors alone would have made up already about half of the permitted participants of such event. In other words, roughly only one visitor would have been allowed per exhibitor.
Please also note the current Corona regulation of the state of Baden-Württemberg. https://www.baden-wuerttemberg.de/de/service/aktuelle-infos-zu-corona/aktuelle-corona-verordnung-des-landes-baden-wuerttemberg/
We are therefore of the opinion that a Show for Fossils is currently neither organizationally nor economically feasible. It would also be irresponsible in view of the current context. We all have looked forward to meet up again at the Fossilien Boerse 2020 and therefore regret this development. So we should look forward for the show for fossils 2021 known as Fossilien Boerse.
Show date for the “Fossilien Boerse 2021” :
The next fossils show known as “Fossilien Boerse” is planned for April 9-11, 2021.
Together with the Location Filderhalle Leinfelden-Echterdingen we are trying to plan as well and safely as possible. Of course, this planning also focuses on safe distance and hygiene concepts for a fossil Event.
At this point we will inform you about the further development here.
The expected date for the next fossil fair “Fossilien Boerse” is on April 9-11, 2020.
