Following close consultation with both exhibitors and partners, Messe Düsseldorf has cancelled Valve World Expo and wire and Tube trade fairs due to the current Covid-19 infection developments in Germany and other parts of the world. The next events will be held in their usual in accordance with their cycle once again in Düsseldorf in 2022. The other events of Messe Düsseldorf planned for 2021 are not affected by this decision.
“Due to the decision of the federal and state governments on October 28, 2020, trade fairs cannot be held until the end of November for the time being”, explains Wolfram Diener, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. “This means that the last physical events of this year will not be held within our fairground here in Düsseldorf. Our hygiene and infection protection concept, which was received well by exhibitors and the focus on a European orientation of the trade fairs made the hope for a successful holding with the highest protection levels possible seem realistic for all parties involved until recently. Due to the increasingly critical pandemic situation in Germany and our European neighbouring countries, however, the situation had to be completely re-assessed.”
Diener goes on to say: “Exhibitors and visitors can continue gathering information on the latest news from the industry as well as trends and product innovations on our online platforms. With this in mind, we are constantly developing our digital content.
