ICE Europe 2021 postponed due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; new dates to be announced in due course
Mack-Brooks Exhibitions has today postponed the 2021 editions of ICE Europe, CCE International and InPrint Munich. The collective of converting, paper and print exhibitions, which was scheduled for June 22-24 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany, is postponed in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"The current course of the pandemic and the current restrictions in Germany means that there is insufficient planning security for all parties involved. Despite an enhanced health and safety plan in place and the exhibitors’ willingness to go ahead with the shows in June, we believe that the most responsible decision at this stage is to postpone," explains Patrick Herman, event dir.-Converting, Paper and Print Events at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions.
“This situation underlines the importance of our shows for the industry. However, conditions to hold trade fairs have not yet been determined and our hands are tied. With the circumstances unlikely to change in a foreseeable future, we must remain sensible and minimise the economic risk for all participants. To hold the shows at a later date hopefully ensures that the events can continue their critical role in bringing the global converting, paper and print industry together again. Specific dates for the exhibitions will be announced shortly."
The ICE Europe, CCE International and InPrint Munich Events Team will communicate closely with customers and partners over the coming weeks and months. The organizers say thank you to all their exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for "their support during this challenging time."
