interpack 2021 is Cancelled and will retuen in 2023
09 December 2020: Messe Düsseldorf has decided to cancell both interpack and components 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The trade fairs were scheduled to take place from February 25-March 3, 2021 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“We have made every effort 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 tried and tested hygiene concept 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,” explained Wolfram N. Diener, president & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf.
“On November 25, 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 focusing 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,” added Diener.
Messe Düsseldorf had offered registered exhibitors special conditions for their participation and also granted a special right of termination for those companies that could not or did not want to participate.
Until the next edition of interpack, the industry can access continuous updates on industry trends, developments and innovations at www.interpack.com. The online offer for components is available at www.packaging-components.com. Additional online options will be available for exhibitors and visitors of the upcoming interpack and components 2023.
