Interpack trade show cancelled and moved to 2023
Messe Düsseldorf has decided to cancel both Interpack and components 2021, scheduled to take place from 25 February to 3 March 2021, due to the restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We have done everything we can to do justice to Interpack’s tremendous importance for the processing and packaging industry, even during this pandemic – above all because we have received encouragement from the industry in support of a face-to-face event and have a hygiene concept that has been tried and tested in practice in place to protect everyone involved.
“Ultimately, however, feedback from our exhibitors has shown that the uncertainty is too great, and we are thus unable to host an interpack event that would meet the standards of a leading international trade fair,” explains Wolfram N. Diener, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “On 25 November, the Federal Government and the German states decided to implement stricter measures in Germany, and to possibly even extend these measures into the new year.
“This, unfortunately, does not give cause for hope that the situation will improve significantly over the course of the coming months. This will affect all Messe Düsseldorf events in the first quarter.
“We are now focussing on the next edition of Interpack, which will take place in May 2023 according to plan, and which we will supplement with extended online offers.”
