Frankfurt PaperWorld Finally Cancelled for 2021Following a decision by Messe Frankfurt in September 2020 to postpone PaperWorld from January to April 2021 comes news that it will not be held at all in 2021.

“It would not be possible for us to satisfy our customers’ requirements for international trade fairs in April or May,” said Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt.

Consequently, the combined International Goods Show has had to be cancelled because “there is currently no end to the pandemic in sight. Events are effectively banned in Germany, and ongoing international travel restrictions mean that it is impossible to make any trade fair plans for April or May 2021.”

He added, “As a result of the current situation and ongoing travel restrictions, exhibitors are faced with huge uncertainties regarding who will be allowed to be present and their customer contacts, making it extremely difficult to commit to trade fair participation.”

This also impacts the Reman Expo pavilion which has focussed on printer supplies.

Messe Frankfurt has created numerous digital offerings for its customers. Consumer Goods Digital Day on April 20, 2021, for example, to offer customers the opportunity to get together at a digital location where they can engage in dialogue and obtain information.

David Connett, consultant and promoter for Paperworld and co-organizer of the Reman Expo pavilion at that expo will host a series of REMCON presentations during the Digital Days. Details of the presentations will be published early in 2021.

“The ongoing shutdown of retailers in our visitor countries has made relevant up-to-date information and solutions essential, and we are satisfying this demand with our digital offerings during this volatile time. As you know, we are also continuing to do everything in our power to make safe and successful trade fairs possible, because nothing can take the place of face-to-face encounters.”

The live, face-to-face Paperworld will now take place from 29 January to 1 February 2022.
