BERNEXPO AG: business performance dominated by the coronavirus pandemic

BERNEXPO AG expects a loss in the low double-digit millions for the current financial year. Due to the dramatic situation on the trade fair and event market, the company has only been able to generate sales revenues from ad hoc events.
