ROTOR live 2020 cancelled
MSV Medien cancels ROTOR live 2020 due to official order.
Baden-Baden, 11 March 2020 – the management of MSV Medien has been in close contact with the local authorities during the past few weeks. On the basis of the catalogue of criteria for the realization of events adopted by the Robert Koch Institute on 28.02.2020, a daily evaluation was carried out. Initially, the competent authorities were of the opinion that ROTOR live 2020 could take place subject to certain precautions. Accordingly, the preparations for the fair were pushed ahead and the agreed arrangements were made.
Due to the further accelerated spread of the coronavirus in Germany and especially in Baden-Württemberg, now also the local authorities urgently recommend to refrain from holding the trade fair. The responsible municipality follows the recommendation and has today ordered the cancellation of ROTOR live 2020 in writing. We will implement this instruction of the municipality immediately, as health and safety of all parties involved are our top priority.
The 11th edition of the model helicopter fair was planned for the 14th to 15th March at the Baden Racing site in Iffezheim.
Over 50 exhibitors and almost 100 pilots from all nations were expected. The fair is one of the largest model flight events worldwide and attracts several thousand visitors every year.
The next edition of ROTOR live is scheduled for 13 and 14 March 2021.
