From 7 - 9 September 2021, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology is again planning a German joint stand at ECWATECH, WASTECH as well as NO-Dig. The experience of the past few months confirms that most trade fairs in Moscow have to make do with lower exhibitor and trade visitor numbers, but still take place. The VDMA therefore recommends participation via local offices or representatives, as entry to Russia from abroad remains very uncertain.

For the 20th NEFTEGAZ Moscow trade fair at the end of April, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology is once again offering a joint German stand at very favourable conditions. Of course, foreign trade fairs are not very popular at the moment, but Russia and China are an exception: while trade fairs in the Far East have long since returned to pre-pandemic levels, they are still taking place in Moscow - albeit with fewer exhibitors and trade visitors. VDMA members who are heavily involved in Russia are quite successful in participating in trade fairs in Russia via their local staff - according to the findings of the last VDMA Market-TALK Oil Gas Petrochem Russia in November 2020. Participation could therefore make sense.
