Messe Frankfurt is a trade fair, congress and event organiser with its own exhibition grounds. Headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, the company is owned by the City of Frankfurt and the State of Hesse. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it has decided to postpone any planned spring 2021 trade fairs to 2022.
“The coronavirus pandemic has taken centre-stage, and our plans have not escaped its impact. In light of the current situation, it would not be possible for us to satisfy our customers’ requirements for international trade fairs in April or May,” said Detlef Braun, a member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt.
The postponed shows include Prolight + Sound planned for April, and textile fairs Heimtextil, Techtextil and Texprocess scheduled for May. The International Consumer Goods Show has been canceled for this year. Because of buying cycles in the entertainment, technology, consumer goods and textile industries, an event outside of that timeframe would not be effective.
Since physical gatherings are not possible, Messe Frankfurt reported that it has created numerous digital offerings for its customers. It is planning Consumer Goods Digital Day on April 20, 2021. Additional digital information and content offerings are being planned for Heimtextil, Techtextil, Texprocess and Prolight + Sound.
Heimtextil has been rescheduled for Jan. 11–14, 2022. Prolight + Sound will convene April 26–29, 2022. Techtextil and Texprocess will take place in the second quarter of 2022.
