COVID-19 Passport and face masks required at Dog Fair Finland
COVID-19 passport is required at the Winner and Puppy shows on 18th and 19th December 2021 at Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre. We also require all visitors to wear a face mask, to take care of good hand hygiene, and to keep distance to others.
Come to the event only if you’re healthy and please follow our health safety instructions. You will find more information about the COVID-19 Passport here.
All six, large halls at Messukeskus are used at Dog Fair Finland. There are less trade stands and programme numbers than usual. For example, no toy dog show for children is held this year. The award ceremonies for Hero Dogs and Vuolasvirta-awarded breeders have also been cancelled.
Helsinki Winner Puppy Show and Voittaja Puppy Show have been cancelled. Schedules for dog shows have been made looser and spread over a longer period of time. No Best in Show Breeder competition is held in connection with group finals and final competitions start later than usual.
Messukeskus received a COVID-19 certificate in recognition of exemplary work for Covid-19 safety. The certificate has been awarded by SAFE Asset Group, an international certification and consulting company specialising in the security of commercial premises.
