Bazaar Berlin takes a break in 2020

Next Bazaar Berlin to take place from 3 to 7 November 2021

Bazaar Berlin, the consumer exhibition for beautiful and sustainable products from all over the world, will not take place as planned from 4 to 8 November 2020. This decision was taken following the latest developments regarding the coronavirus Covid-19, and taking into consideration the resulting requirements and measures for trade fairs and events.

”Under the current circumstances and with the existing regulations for containing the Covid-19 pandemic, Bazaar Berlin cannot take place in the usual way in which we have come to love this event“, said Karel Heijs, director of Life Sciences at Messe Berlin. ”Despite having received numerous applications from Germany as well as in recent weeks from other European countries, we do not yet know whether our partners from Africa, Asia, South America and Australia will be able to come.“

“We are therefore taking a break this year. We very much regret this decision, not least because together with our loyal exhibitors and enthusiastic visitors we were greatly looking forward to Bazaar Berlin 2020“, said Esther Piehl, the project manager for Bazaar Berlin. ”We regret that under the present circumstances we are unable to hold the event in its usual form. Unfortunately, the requirements and measures needed to protect exhibitors, visitors and employees, which could mean wearing face masks and adhering to physical distancing rules, are not compatible with a lively, colourful, and welcoming event.“

Save the date – Bazaar Berlin 2021

The next Bazaar Berlin will take place from 3 to 7 November 2021 on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.

”We would like to thank all our exhibitors and visitors for their loyalty and placing their trust in us, and are already looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Bazaar Berlin in November 2021“, said Esther Piehl, the project manager for Bazaar Berlin.

From 3 to 7 November 2021 Bazaar Berlin will take place for the fifty-ninth time on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. At this long-running consumer exhibition, at the five themed sections under the headings World Market, Fair & Social, Natural Living, Art & Style and Winter at Home, around 500 exhibitors from more than 60 countries present quality handicrafts, typical regional specialities, fashion with a personal touch, jewellery, accessoires, eco-products, fair trade goods, natural goods and many other items.

For Bazaar Berlin combining good business with social responsibility is an important aim. Since it was launched in 1962 as ‘Partners for Progress’ to support development policy aims, it regularly promotes programmes supporting fair trade goods that are produced sustainably and under ethically fair conditions.
