IMEX Group has announced the cancellation of IMEX Frankfurt this year due to the pandemic.
The event was scheduled to happen from May 25-27 at Messe Frankfurt in Germany, and this is the second consecutive year it has been cancelled.
In a statement, IMEX said that they “still believe wholeheartedly that a resurgence will come”, but it will not happen in time for the organisers to “deliver a strong and successful event in May”.
This is because the tradeshow is reliant on international travel routes being open in coming weeks to allow buyers and exhibitors â€“ hailing from over 150+ countries â€“ to confirm their participation.
However, IMEX group remains “genuinely positive about the future”, with the rollouts of vaccines and improvements in rapid testing programmes.
As such, they are confident they will be able to deliver IMEX America in Las Vegas from November 9-11, 2021, as well as the IMEX Frankfurt 2022 from April 26-28).
