SurfaceTechnology GERMANY and p2c announces cancellation of Stuttgart fairs on October 2020. The next date is 21st-23rd June 2022 for SurfaceTechnology GERMANY and 5th-7th October 2021 for p2c.
The media, as well as all exhibitors, visitors and companies interested in both fairs will be informed shortly. An FAQ section on the most pressing queries will be released on their website.
In numerous discussions over the last few weeks the situation had become increasingly transparent: Due to the economic crisis, in which some companies are simply struggling to survive, other topics are prioritized at present over a trade fair participation. The question of health and infection protection also continues to be of central importance. Whether for business or private reasons – a large part of the population reduces travel activities and contacts to the bare essentials. Travelling, particularly on an international level, is difficult. Add to this hygiene concepts and political guidelines for trade fairs, which would have considerably clouded the traditional appearance of the event.
A visitor survey conducted last week was the final reason for the cancellation. According to this survey, 65% percent of the usual visitors to SurfaceTechnology GERMANY have already ruled out a visit or at least expressed doubts about a visit.
