It is the first time in HANNOVER MESSE’s 73-year history that the event will not take place, due to the increasingly critical situation surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Deutsche Messe issued a press release today.

Comprehensive travel restrictions, bans on group gatherings and a prohibition decree in the Hannover region make it impossible to stage HANNOVER MESSE, the the world’s leading tradeshow for industrial technology. At the same time, the corona crisis is affecting the economy, and the manufacturing industry -HANNOVER MESSE’s core clientele – is already struggling with serious consequences of the pandemic. 

From now until the next HANNOVER MESSE in April 2021, a digital information and networking offer will provide exhibitors and visitors with the opportunity for economic policy orientation and technological exchange.

Hannover Messe 2021 will be held from 12 to 16 April 2021.
