International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management must be postponed due to the difficult corona situation again. In close coordination with the exhibitors, the organizer, EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH, has decided to postpone the upcoming fair on the date of 31. May. to 2. June 2022. The LogiMAT.digital platform will be extended until the end of June 2022.
Due to the once again difficult corona situation, LogiMAT – International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management will not be as planned from 08. to 10. March 2022. Due to the current incidences and insufficient vaccination rate, the organizer, EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH, is forced to update LogiMAT to the date of 31. May to 2. June 2022.
The current high incidences are also unsettling our exhibitors. This is understandable and cannot simply be ignored. Therefore, we must react again in good time to this current situation. Our exhibitors need planning security, which is difficult at the moment,” explains Michael Ruchty, trade fair manager of LogiMAT, Stuttgart. Whether the face-to-face event could take place in full in March is unclear from today’s point of view. The exhibitors want a face-to-face event – but if the still too low vaccination rate and the associated utilization of hospitals lead to stricter requirements again, this is not in the interests of all parties involved. We must do everything we can to meet the legitimate expectations of exhibitors and visitors on site. Therefore, it is not surprising that this postponement is expressly desired by many exhibitors”.
We welcome and support the necessary decision to hold the fair at a poorer risk time. The health well-being of guests and employees at a Jungheinrich booth is our top priority. We are looking forward to a successful LogiMAT 2022 in May, explains Christian Erlach, Member of the Board of Management Sales of Jungheinrich AG in Hamburg.
A decision that we fully support. The situation does not allow reliable planning at the moment. We are looking forward to the next trade fair in Stuttgart and have some exciting new products and innovative solutions to offer for the trade audience. In addition to safe implementation, safe planning is also essential for this,” explains Steffen Bersch, CEO of the SSI SCHÄFER Group.
This decision is as understandable as it is regrettable. It is absolutely right and necessary to enable all exhibitors and visitors to have a predictable and safe event. If we look at the experiences of the last 2 years, the date in May offers the significantly better conditions for this,” adds Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Fottner, Full Professor of the Chair of Conveyor Technology Material Flow Logistics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Munich and Chairman of the expert jury “LogiMAT BEST PRODUCT”.
In order to bridge the time until the fair in May 2022, the LogiMAT.digital platform will be extended for all participants until the end of June 2022.
“We regret the necessity, but the date at the end of May is perfect and we are pleased that we were able to realize this wish of our exhibitors at such short notice with the support of Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH,” explains Peter Kazander, Managing Director of EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH. With our LogiMAT.digital platform, we will close the gap together with the exhibitors by the end of May and thus continue to stay in contact with trade visitors in a timely manner.
EUROEXPO as organizer expressly thanks all exhibitors and partners for their loyalty, patience and support.
The next LogiMAT will take place from 31. May. to 2. June 2022 in Stuttgart.
