Information on COVID-19 management

During the coronavirus pandemic, the entire world currently faces problems of unprecedented proportions relating to health, society and the economy. Many of the major aviation shows have already been postponed, numerous businesses are working under challenging conditions, and it is almost impossible to plan with any certainty. However, we are already looking into the future – a future that promises better times ahead. Because this crisis too will reach an end at some stage. And then we will once again quickly need face-to-face meetings, our marketplaces for new products and innovations, and the media’s flashlights. One of these outstanding marketplaces is EUROPEAN ROTORS, which will be taking place in Cologne from November 10 – 12, 2020. It is an excellent, premium business platform which represents the new highlight for the rotorcraft community, something that has been convincingly demonstrated by registrations to date, and the feedback from the helicopter industry.

Our industry – like the rest of the world – now must plan and prepare for how we can recover and rebound.


EUROPEAN ROTORS is taking place as scheduled in Cologne from 10 to 12 November 2020. Health and safety of our exhibitors and visitors have always been our highest priority. It is our goal to take every measure necessary that you continue to feel safe and comfortable when being at EUROPEAN ROTORS.

The above-mentioned measures include appropriate hygiene, maintaining sufficient distance between people at all times, and strict guidelines for the processes carried out at entrances, in the halls and at the stands. Additionally we have decided to run the show with a limited number of visitors and have been offering date specific tickets for the visit of EUROPEAN ROTORS via our online ticket shop. Tickets will not be sold on site. Hall 8 of Koelnmesse is large and spacious which means there is enough space for all visitors and exhibitors to keep the mandatory minimum distance.

Even if normality has been and still is a foreign word, we want to allow us some optimism and are looking forward to meeting you in November. Until then the EUROPEAN ROTORS Team wants to stay a reliable partner and is happy to answer any questions you might have.

We are currently working on the implementation of the necessary measures to run the show, we will keep you updated as soon as the official requirements has been published and adjusted to our event. Once these requirements are in place we will include them in this document and inform all attendees about the details.

Of course, we are also always happy to provide you with help and advice so that you can plan and prepare your trade show participation in this unprecedented situation.

For exhibitors

There is no reason to wait any longer. Dear Exhibitors, please bear in mind that the earlier you register, the greater your choice in terms of the position of your stand will be. If you register, your registration can be cancelled free of charge until we receive the written confirmation of the stand proposal by you.
Furthermore please also have a look at our terms and conditions: the paragraph “8. Cancellation, Postponement / Relocation and change in the length of the event" assures you, that if postponement or relocation or other such changes will become a component of the contract due to force majeure, they are notified to the exhibitor.

In these instances, the exhibitor is allowed to claim any part or full reimbursement.
