Messe München cancels two trade fairs, postpones one

Feb. 17, 2021
The decision was made early to cancel both 2021 and Inhorgenta Munich 2021 while Laser World of Photonics 2021 will be postponed to 2022

Messe München is canceling 2021 and Inhorgenta Munich 2021. Laser World of Photonics 2021 will be postponed to 2022.

The organization is citing the current pandemic as the reason as it makes planning for upcoming international in-person trade fairs difficult. The decision comes after consulting with its customers and partners.

Inhorgenta Munich 2021 is Europe’s leading platform for jewelry, timepieces and gemstones and would have been held from April 15 to 19. The travel and leisure trade fair 2021 would have occured from April 21 to 25. Münchner Auto Tage, scheduled to take place alongside, will also be canceled for 2021. These events are all normally held annually. The company is also postponing  Laser World of Photonics 2021, a leading trade fair for photonic components, systems and applications, to April 26 to 29, 2022.

Messe München also reiterated that the scientific World of Photonics Congress will be held on the original dates, from June 20 to 24, 2021, as an online event. Its automatica sprint event, the compact independent “thoroughbred daughter” of automatica, will take place in June. The new format will reduce the amount of work required in the run-up to the trade fair. The automatica sprint show has been designed as both an in-person and a digital event, guaranteeing the feasibility of the new format no matter what happens.
