On 21 April 2020, in order to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2 the Senate of Berlin imposed a ban on staging large events, in particular trade fairs with an attendance of more than 5,000, until 24 October 2020. As a result, it will not be possible for Messe Berlin to hold InnoTrans as originally planned from 22 to 25 September 2020.
After consulting with the co-founding associations of InnoTrans and the leading market players Messe Berlin has decided to postpone InnoTrans 2020.
”The health and safety of exhibitors, trade visitors and all the employees at the trade fair have the utmost priority. For this reason InnoTrans will take place from 27 to 30 April 2021. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our exhibitors at InnoTrans for their cooperation and loyalty “, said Kerstin Schulz, director of InnoTrans.
Additional information on the postponement of InnoTrans can be found online at www.innotrans.de/en/AtAGlance/CurrentInformation/.
