In reaction to the terrorist attacks as well as the changed security situation in Europe, Messe München is in close contact with the relevant security authorities. Accordingly, Messe München has established a comprehensive security concept in consultation with the Munich police and the relevant authorities. Both uniformed and plainclothes security personnel are on duty in greater numbers. The permanent presence of the police at the exhibition center and in the surrounding area is also guaranteed.
In addition, there are random bag searches with X-ray equipment at all entrances. Furthermore, the supervisory measures at the vehicle accesses have been intensified. Comprehensive video surveillance is likewise guaranteed.
Moreover, the responsibilities in occurrences and emergencies of relevance to security are specified in the security concept and the internal and external communication and alarm channels are defined. The security concept is revised for each event. Thus the team can adapt the action plans to different occurrences and react at short notice. In future too, the increased security precautions will be maintained and adapted to the respective situation.
