This decision was taken in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and following conversations with all exhibitors and partners that have taken place over the past weeks and months.
Uncertainties around continued travel restrictions were also a contributing factor to this decision due to the international character of the EuroBLECH show.
The recent launch of the first EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit attracted 5,500 international participants from 91 countries and featured meeting options, webinars on recent industry trends and exhibitor presentations as well as hundreds of exhibitor product showcases.
Speaking about the announcement, Nicola Hamann, managing director of show organisers Mack-Brooks Exhibitions said: “With the recent launch of the EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit we have laid the foundation stone for a hybrid approach to our EuroBLECH Event, which will enable us to run a series of digital events in 2021 for the sheetmetal working industry.
“As a result, EuroBLECH as we know it will be back for all participants in 2022, but as the industry slowly recovers in the coming year, we will offer opportunities to regularly meet, network and conduct business in a safe online format in the meantime. It was very apparent at EuroBLECH DIGITAL, that there currently is a need for the industry to get together and also discover latest innovations to kick-start their business efforts.”
Every two years, the sheetmetal technology exhibition attracts top industry professionals from all over the world.
The show targets specialists at all management levels in SME companies as well as large enterprises from all key industry sectors. Featuring an enormous amount of live machine demonstrations, EuroBLECH is known as an important event to find smart solutions and the right machines, equipment and materials for their companies.
