UV light eradicates up to to 95 per cent of viruses and bacteria indoors and lowers risk of infection

Hamburg Messe is using UV-C air purifiers to combat viruses and bacteria as part of its COVID-19 hygiene plans.  The air purifiers supplement existing systems in the exhibition halls and reduce the risk of infections.

UV-C technology to provide additional safety

The Photopia Hamburg trade fair is among those returrning to the fairgrounds and gets underway from September 23-26, 2021. The four-day festival is aimed at the entire digital imaging industry as well as professional and amateur photographers, mobile phone users and all those with a passion for photography and shooting movies. Several photo events and installations will be held across the city parallel to the fair.
