Event Update

The 2023 edition of EQUITANA will be hosted between 09.03.2023 and 15.03.2023. The hosting location will be Messe Essen and the event will be held as a live trade show. Currently, Germany does not have strict Covid-19 restrictions in place at its venues due to the improved epidemiological situation. Attendees will be encouraged to follow recommendations such as wearing safety equipment such as face masks. They should note that, at present, Germany does not require visitors to show 3G entry documents upon arrival in the country. Yet, if they are arriving from a virus area of concern, they will have to quarantine for 14 days. At present, there are no nations with such a designation.

Presentation of the Event
