• ORGATEC 2020 cancelled with new presentation options planned for 2021

        • Despite extensive preparations for the trade fair and high registration levels, in recent weeks, a large majority of exhibitors and trade visitors decided not to attend, prompting the cancellation of ORGATEC for this year.

          The cancellations by exhibitors and visitors were motivated by concern for the health of employees, but also by the economic situation of the companies themselves. The latest news about new cases of infection in Germany also played an increased role. The current travel situation is still uncertain, too – particularly at the intercontinental level.

          ORGATEC said, “this was a very difficult decision for us. With our comprehensive package of measures, #B-SAFE4business, we were already very well prepared to host our trade fairs in a coronavirus-compliant manner. Leading international trade fairs such as ORGATEC require certain completeness where exhibitor and visitor attendance are concerned.

          “Naturally, we will refund all of the tickets that have already been paid for. We will centrally issue these refunds in the coming weeks; there is nothing further that you need to do.

          “Nonetheless, this setback creates even more of an incentive for us to look ahead and develop new business platforms for you. After all, your success is our goal. This is why we would like to directly offer you an attractive alternative with which to reach your business partners in a high-quality setting and at an international level. Accordingly, in close cooperation with the industry, at short notice, we are developing new options for presenting the topics of ORGATEC as part of our furnishings portfolio. This will give you the opportunity to conduct business on an international level again soon.

          “Because we are set to get started again directly in January. That is when imm cologne 2021 will be held again here in Cologne as the first trade fair of worldwide relevance for the entire furnishings industry. So we would be delighted if you would join us on this path.”

          The next regularly scheduled ORGATEC will be held from 25th to 29th October 2022 in Cologne.
