Abf – A Brief Introduction 

abf is the perfect event for you to learn the newest trends in the world of travel, sports and camping and increase your visibility among professional visitors and end consumers.

COVID Report

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, it was impossible to host live events due to government lockdowns and flight restrictions, which led to the cancelation of abf 2021. Today, Deutsche Messe is hopeful to bring back abf in 2022 as a live event. There’s strong interest in reviving the travel and tourism industry now that vaccination rates are on the rise and people can travel freely. The official dates for abf 2022 are set for February 2nd – February 6th. Organisers are fully complying with government guidelines and have put in place first-rate COVID-19 protective measures at Messe Hannover.
