Messe Frankfurt, in close cooperation with the Frankfurt Health Authority, has decided to cancel Luminale at short notice. It was to be held in Frankfurt and Offenbach from 12 to 15 March.
Due to the current requirements of the health authorities to prohibit major events with more than 1,000 participants, Messe Frankfurt, as organiser of Luminale, decided to cancel the Light Festival at short notice. The volatile situation and the dynamic spread of SARS-CoV-2, combined with the recommendation of the Robert Koch Institute to also take a critical view of events with well below 1,000 participants, led to this new assessment. Messe Frankfurt deeply regrets this short-term decision, but out of responsibility for the health of participants and visitors, no other decision was possible.
