Messe Düsseldorf is postponing the international trade fair interpack. It will now take place from February 25-March 3, 2021.
In doing so, Messe Düsseldorf is following the recommendation of the crisis management team of the German Federal Government to take into account the principles of the Robert Koch Institute when assessing the risk of major events. Based on this recommendation and the recent significant increase in the number of people infected with the new corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), including in Europe, Messe Düsseldorf has reassessed the situation. In addition, there is the general ruling issued by the city of Düsseldorf on 11 March 2020, in which major events with more than 1,000 participants present at the same time are generally prohibited.
interpack’s industry partners support the decision to postpone the fair and together with those responsible, are counting on a successful event next year.
“We are looking forward to next year’s event to discuss the issues that are defining the industry, such as sustainability, and to present appropriate solutions,” comments Christian Traumann, president of interpack 2020 and managing director & group president at Multivac Sepp Haggenmüller of Wolfertschwenden, Germany.
