【DE】The DONAURIES exhibition is postponed to 2023

In 2022, the popular Donau-Ries exhibition cannot take place in Donauwörth either. This means that the fair has been cancelled for the second time in a row.


It is bitter news for all companies and associations and also for visitors to the always very popular Donau-Ries exhibition: The trade fair planned in Donauwörth in 2022 will not take place. Josef Albert Schmid from the trade fair organizer JWS announces this. The reason for this is not the corona pandemic, but the fact that one of the central halls for the exhibition is currently being used as emergency shelter for Ukrainians.


Schmid from the trade fair and exhibition organization JWS says: “Our problem is no longer the pandemic, but the war in Ukraine and its immediate effects. The Danube-Ries exhibition usually takes place around the Stauferhalle. However, refugees from Ukraine are accommodated there until further notice, and this will probably remain the case for a while.” This makes it clear that the exhibition definitely cannot take place as planned for the autumn date in Stauferpark.


Most recently, the Donau-Ries exhibition took place in Donauwörth in 2017


Most recently, the popular exhibition, where companies and associations from all over northern Swabia present themselves, was implemented in Nördlingen in 2019. Normally, it takes place alternately in Donauwörth and Ries every two years. So it would have been Donauwörth’s turn in 2021, but due to the pandemic, the fair was cancelled. In 2017, the Stauferpark was last the venue for the exhibitors. But what alternatives are there? Messemacher Schmid is already in talks with the district office as the ideal sponsor of the exhibition and with the city administration of Donauwörth as hostess. Schmid realistically sees three possibilities: “Either we postpone the exhibition by one year or to spring to Volksfestplatz. Another possibility would be to implement the exhibition at a completely different location in the district.”


Danube-Ries exhibition will not take place until 2023 at the earliest


All variants take time, because in individual discussions with all exhibitors, it is determined where topics and exhibitors are located on the new site, and this does not happen overnight. As a result, one thing is certain: Due to this detailed work, the exhibition will not be able to take place in 2022 – but where and when it can be held in 2023 has not yet been clarified. (AZ)
