Mack Brooks Exhibitions has announced that leading airport exhibition, inter airport Europe, is to be rescheduled once more and will run 9-12 November 2021 at the Messe München in Germany.
It has been hooked forward a week in the latest calendar reshuffle.
A 16-19 November 2021 date in Munich had been announced in April, but the organiser says extensive conversations with exhibitors, visitors and partners over recent weeks had fed back a preference for holding the next show as early as possible in November 2021, in order to avoid clashes with other events and holidays.
Nicola Hamann, managing director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions, said: “Following the consideration of feedback we have received from all stakeholders after the postponement in April, we have been able to secure the earliest slot to hold inter airport Europe in November 2021 and are pleased to announce this new date. The November slot is not an ideal solution for us; however, one week ahead of the previous announcement fits a lot better into the overall event schedule. All outdoor exhibitors who have concerns over the weather in November will be able to present their equipment indoors in 2021.”
The past months have been challenging for the airport industry, with a drastic drop in air travel and orders for new equipment and terminal extensions postponed indefinitely. This scenario has posed many challenges for equipment and technology providers.
“We believe it is our duty to assist through these extraordinary times by offering a flexible approach and concept for inter airport Europe for the next few years which we are currently developing. Our commitment is to offer our industry the marketplace it needs to emerge from this crisis quicker and stronger”, said Hamann.
Mack Brooks said it will make available further information on the new concept for the upcoming shows from September.
