Ever larger gaps appearing amongst autumn events

10.07.2020 − 

As the corona crisis had already led to the postponement or cancellation of almost all trade fairs, conference events, and meetings of association members in spring and summer, the dates scheduled for the next few months are meanwhile being increasingly affected as well. Although several of the trade fairs postponed in China in the first quarter are now to take place from July, such as the China International Furniture Fair (CIFF), the Interzum Guangzhou held parallel to it, and Domotex Asia/Chinafloor (DACF), more supplier fairs have been rescheduled for next year or a year later. Interzum Bogotá, originally scheduled to take place at the end of May, is now to be held at the beginning of February 2021. The International Woodworking Fair (IWF) was immediately rescheduled to the next regular date in August 2022, just like the Sicam now planned for October 2021. Other trade fairs are currently still sticking to their scheduled dates in the third and fourth quarters. In many cases, however, it is doubtful if these can take place due to the uncertainty that still exists about the further spread of the coronavirus and the restrictions imposed on contact/travel as well as the quarantine measures being taken to contain it. This applies in particular for events in the regions meanwhile more heavily affected by the coronavirus, like North and South America, for example. In Europa, events such as the Xylexpo, rescheduled to mid-November, and the Fimma/Maderalia double trade fair also planned for November appear to have not been finally secured yet.
