Bad news for all fetish & BDSM fans
According to the decision of the German Chancellor and the heads of the federal states on October 28, 2020 the BDSM & FETISH FAIR Passion 2020 from 13. – 15.11.2020 in Hamburg not can take place, the fetish fair Passion 2020 is cancelled!
The decision states: „Institutions and facilities which are part of the leisure activities will be closed. including trade fairs.“ This regulation is valid for the whole of November 2020.
In the Corona Ordinance of the City of Hamburg, as amended on 01.09.2020, trade fairs were seen and regulated as trading places. The trade fair venues in Germany also see themselves as such. The organizers of the Passion were prepared to invest in the necessary infection prevention measures and to enforce the applicable rules for the protection of visitors. The hygiene concept was a component for the approval of the Passion by the competent authority. It wasn’t meant to be. Let’s hope that this renewed shutdown will not turn into a knock-down for many companies in the scene!
Anyone who had already bought a trade fair ticket was informed about the further procedure in a circular e-mail. The organiser is now getting down to work on the preparations for the obscene 2021, the erotic and scene trade fair with claim, at the Sindelfingen trade fair centre near Stuttgart. You can note the date: 05.03. – – 07.03.2021.
Also all parties fall victim to the ban
Already last year the fetish fair Passion was well received by visitors and guests. The exhibitors were also very satisfied and looked forward to a new edition of the event in late autumn 2020.
This also means that the party at Club de Sade in Hamburg is no longer necessary. So far, admission was limited to 70 party guests and a strict hygiene concept was promised by the organizer. Nevertheless: all lamenting is useless, the fetish fair Passion 2020 is cancelled.
Also the Passion Night, which was supposed to take place on November 14th in the BDSM-Club Catonium, is cancelled. The idea was to dance here after the fair, play together and exchange ideas with like-minded people. The Catonium would offer the right locations for this: high-quality play equipment and rooms that are oriented towards the different eras.
