In accordance with the decision issued by the government, and until further notice, Stockholmsmässan has shut down all spring 2020 exhibitions and events with more than 50 participants, in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Health and safety continues to be our highest priority and this precautionary decision has been taken in order to keep our community safe. We are constantly monitoring the official updates from the authorities.
Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair is set to take place on February 9-13 and we are forging ahead with the planning, on the assumption that the fair will be able to go ahead as scheduled. We very much look forward to creating a fantastic meeting place where people can once again congregate, make new contacts and secure new business. And together with our exhibitors, we will make sure that this forum remains the strong platform for Scandinavian design that the industry so badly needs.
What is happening right now at Stockholmsmässan?
The Swedish Armed Forces and Region Stockholm are using parts of Stockholmsmässan to set up a field hospital and we are extremely happy to be able to help them deal with the situation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. The medical facility will operate within a sealed area that is kept entirely separate from our other events that are still going ahead.
