Mack Brooks Exhibitions has again announced the postponement of its Chemspec Europe event, scheduled to take place at Koelnmesse, in Germany, 11-12 November 2020. The next attempt to run the live show Chemspec Europe, 35th International Exhibition for Fine and Speciality Chemicals, will be 19-20 May 2021, in Hall 12.1 at Messe Frankfurt.
The decision to postpone this time was taken, the organiser says, after exhibitors and partners expressed their preference not to hold the show in November, in light of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
Nicola Hamann (pictured), managing director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions said: “Whilst it is possible to hold tradeshows again in Germany and our security measures would have helped to ensure the safety of all participants at Chemspec Europe, we have decided to postpone the show to next year. Due to the truly international character of the exhibition on both the exhibitor and visitor side, many participants raised concerns around their ability to attend this year’s event because of on-going travel restrictions globally. Participants’ feedback is very important to us, hence the decision to postpone the event to next year. We are pleased to be able to offer our usual event slot at the end of May and announce the new venue in Frankfurt, Germany.”
A digital Chemspec Europe event will take place, however, during the previously planned in-person event slot, 11–12 November 2020, and offer participants matchmaking facilities to conduct business meetings as well as webinars. More information to follow at: www.chemspeceurope.com
