30/10/2020 – Next edition of the trade fairs to be held in their usual 2022 cycle
“wire” and “Tube” 2020 cancelled
Dusseldorf, 30 October 2020. Following close consultation with both, exhibitors and partners, Messe Dusseldorf has had to take the decision of cancelling wire and Tube trade fairs which had already been postponed to December due to current developments of Covid-19 infection. The next events will be held in their usual in accordance with their cycle once again in Dusseldorf in 2022. Further events of Messe Dusseldorf planned for 2021 are not affected by this decision.
“Due to the decision of the federal and state governments on October 28, 2020, trade fairs cannot be held until the end of November for the time being. This means that the last physical events of this year will not be held within our fairground here in Dusseldorf. Our hygiene and infection protection concept, which was received well by exhibitors and the focus on a European orientation of the trade fairs made the hope for a successful holding with the highest protection levels possible seem realistic for all parties involved until recently. Due to the increasingly critical pandemic situation in Germany and our European neighbouring countries, however, the situation had to be completely re-assessed. Against this backdrop and the currently high number of uncertainties on both the exhibitors’ and visitors’ part we have taken the decision to call off the trade fairs,” explains Wolfram Diener, President and CEO of Messe Dusseldorf GmbH.
The next editions of these two international No. 1 trade fairs for the wire, cable and tube industries, wire und Tube, will now be held in their traditional cycle in 2022.
Diener goes on to say: “Exhibitors and visitors can continue gathering information on the latest news from the industry as well as trends and product innovations on our online platforms. With this in mind we are constantly developing our digital content.”
Diener stresses: “The decision taken today is an event and industry-specific decision that does not affect the other events planned by Messe Dusseldorf. Based on the current state of affairs these will be held. We are in close contact with the authorities and partners of the respective trade fairs which whom we will re-assess the situation to then decide responsibly.”
