GGS –Trade Fair Dangerous Goods // Hazardous Substances

After a positive response in April 2019, the third edition of the GGS – Trade Fair Dangerous Goods // Hazardous Substances was due to be held in November 2020. After all preparations for the trade fair had been made, it had to be cancelled at short notice due to the pandemic. In cooperation with the Trade Fair Advisory Board, we decided to keep to the agreed change in schedule and hold the fair in the autumn of each even-numbered year. The GGS – Trade Fair Dangerous Goods // Hazardous Substances is now scheduled for 8 to 10 November 2022. We look forward to going ahead with the fair on-site, thus returning to personal contact between our exhibitors and trade visitors. Our Safe Expo hygiene concept is continuously updated in response to the current situation and regulations. This means we are well equipped to guarantee the safety of all exhibitors, visitors, guests and staff.
