Mack Brooks Exhibitions has announced the postponement of EuroBLECH, which was scheduled to take place at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds in Germany from October 27 – 30, 2020. The new dates for the next EuroBLECH, 26th International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition, are March 9 – 12, 2021. This decision was taken after extensive conversations with all exhibitors and partners over recent weeks and months who have expressed their preference not to hold the show in October, in light of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
Uncertainties around travel restrictions in order to maintain the truly international character of the EuroBLECH event were also a concern to many participants.
Speaking about the announcement, Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of Mack Brooks
Exhibitions said: “The past months have been challenging, in particular for the sheet metal working industry and its related industry sectors. We have seen a decrease in orders of capital goods and many companies are telling us about their challenges in dealing with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we have recently received authority approval for our Safety and Security concept to hold EuroBLECH in October this year, we have decided to postpone EuroBLECH to Spring 2021.”
