"Our stages are now turning into a television studio", project manager Lars Jaeger announced on Monday. Lectures, discussion rounds and press conferences are to be broadcast live on the Internet on the two days of the fair, January 20 and 21, 2021.

Green Week usually a magnet for visitors

Normally, around 400,000 visitors come to the Green Week on a regular basis, for ten days and with exhibitors from dozens of countries. However, the organizers had already decided in August to open the exhibition halls only to trade visitors.

Digital fair due to high corona numbers

"We had designed the concept to be flexible from the outset, so that we could easily switch from hybrid to digital," Jaeger now explained the latest decision. The reason for this was the high number of corona infections throughout Germany.
