Hannover Messe cancelled but AMX2020 to open in November

After being postponed earlier this month, this year’s Hannover Messe exhibition has been cancelled — for the first time in its 73-year history — because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The next Hannover Messe will now occur during April 2021.

Deutsche Messe has announced that a digital information and networking is now available that will provide exhibitors and visitors the opportunity for economic policy orientation and technological exchange.

“Given the dynamic development around COVID-19 and the extensive restrictions on public and economic life, Hannover Messe cannot take place this year,” said Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the board of management of Deutsche Messe. “Our exhibitors, partners and our entire team did everything they could to make it happen, but today we have to accept that in 2020 it will not be possible to host the world’s most important industrial event.”

Meanwhile, Australia’s Advanced Manufacturing Expo (AMX2020), previously announced as postponed, will now be held in November, according to the organisers.

“Following our earlier announcement regarding the postponement of Advanced Manufacturing Expo in line with Australia government regulations, we have been working closely with our customers, the venue and our contractors to identify the most suitable new dates. We’re delighted to let you know that the event will now take place at Sydney Showground from 18–20 November 2020,” said the organisers in a news release.

“We will do our utmost to help all our customers, partners and attendees to prepare for the new dates. Our number one priority continues to be the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff, and as such, we will remain guided by the expert advice of the public health authorities.”
