Event Update Fakuma cancelled for 2020
In co-operation with the exhibitor advisory board for Fakuma 2020, trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG have decided to postpone the 27th Fakuma to 2021.
The next iteration of the show covering all aspects of plastics processing will take place from the 12 - 16 October, 2021.
“Together with all involved parties, we struggled for a long time to amend the general conditions demanded by the corona pandemic in such a way that Fakuma 2020 could have been promoted successfully,” says Bettina Schall, managing director of P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. A hygiene and security concept was developed for safe trade fair promotion to this end. “We fulfilled all of the prerequisites. However, in co-operation with the exhibitor advisory board we’ve now decided to postpone Fakuma 2020 to October, 2021.”
Bettina Schall emphasises that this decision was based on rational thinking and a sense of responsibility: “As trade fair promoters, we see ourselves as service providers for our exhibitors and expert visitors.
“Current uncertainties amongst exhibitors and visitors, for example with regard to travel and sending employees to events, are making it necessary to look to the year 2021 with pragmatism and confidence.”
