Messe Frankfurt is already revamping spring 2021 schedule

As a result of the course taken by the pandemic, Messe Frankfurt will not be holding any of its own physical trade fairs at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds between January and March 2021. The company is revamping its spring trade fair calendar to focus on new synergies and new digital offerings.

Heimtextil moved to 4 to 7 May 2021

Heimtextil 2021 is being moved from January to 4–7 May 2021, when it will be taking place alongside Techtextil and Texprocess 2021 in Frankfurt. “Much of the international home and contract textiles industry has made it clear that they want Heimtextil 2021 to take place. Many companies are looking to their trade fair presentations to help boost sales following the resumption of business, and we feel that it is more important now than ever that we satisfy this demand,” explained Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt. “However, the travel restrictions that have now been put in place and a renewed rise in the number of infections simply pose too great a hurdle for our very international event. We are working closely with our exhibitors and the relevant authorities and doing everything we can to ensure that we are able to hold a safe and successful Heimtextil 2021.”

‘International Consumer Goods Show — Special Edition’ brings together Messe Frankfurt’s consumer goods portfolio in 2021

From 17 to 20 April 2021, the Ambiente, Christmasworld and Paperworld shows will be making a once-only appearance as a joint event in Frankfurt am Main: the International Consumer Goods Show — Special Edition. The physical event will be actively supplemented with digital offerings as part of Consumer Goods Digital Days, which will also be home to the purely digital Creativeworld, an event that is taking a one-year hiatus as a physical meeting place in 2021. As a result of the trade fairs taking place simultaneously on new dates and the hybrid nature of this event, the entire industry can look forward to beneficial new synergy effects in the ongoing pandemic.

ISH from 22 to 26 March 2021 as an entirely digital event

ISH will be taking place as a purely digital event in 2021, with a wide range of digital features on offer. These include exhibitor presentations (products, information, videos, contact persons, chat functions and one-to-one video calls), intelligent matchmaking that delivers suitable business partners for AI-supported lead generation, live streams and on-demand broadcasts of the supporting programme, and appointments for online meetings with exhibitors. And all of this will be available round the clock throughout the event, worldwide and in every time zone. More information will be available soon.
