Domotex moved to May 2021
January’s planned Domotex flooring trade exhibition has been postponed by four months.
The 15-18 January event has been moved to 20-22 May.
‘It is our duty to act responsibly. From many conversations with exhibitors and partners we have learned that, first and foremost, we have to ensure planning security in good time,’ says Andreas Gruchow, director of organiser Deutsche Messe. ‘With our comprehensive hygiene and safety concept, as well as with the positive registration situation, we were very optimistic until very recently. But the latest developments show that we do not know whether the travel situation will have significantly improved by January 2021. Consequently, we have decided to postpone Domotex from January to May 2021. The discussions that we had with industry representatives on this issue have all been positive and have shown that the postponement is the right decision.’
About two-thirds of the exhibition space – about 62,000sqm – had already been booked and a comprehensive hygiene concept had been developed to comply with COVID-19 safety regulations.
The show will host an online conference on what would have been the show’s opening day and is looking to develop virtual formats for May.
