Messe Frankfurt Middle East COVID Safety Measures

Maintaining a COVID-safe Environment

Messe Frankfurt Middle East is an organisation that continues to adapt, change, and meet the challenges this pandemic has presented us. We have implemented a COVID Safety Plan across all conferences taking place in the United Arab Emirates. At Digital Next Summit, all the safety protocols will be in place in line with Abu Dhabi Government Authorities. The health and safety of our colleagues, partners and audiences remains our number one priority.

We are strictly adhering to all rules and regulations laid out by government authorities, including Abu Dhabi Health Authority and The Ministry of Health and Prevention, to ensure the health and safety of all attendees of Digital Next Summit.
