New date meets with broad industry acceptance
The INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR, which was postponed this year, has a new date. It will be held 21 to 24 February 2021 in Cologne.
The new date was set in consultation with the industry and is meeting with broad acceptance by the exhibitors. All existing contracts with the exhibitors remain valid; hall occupancy for 2021 reflects the existing plans from 2020 on a 1:1 basis.
There will be just one leading trade fair for the hardware industry in Cologne in 2021: Asia-Pacific Sourcing, which was planned for March, will be integrated into the HARDWARE FAIR. The next event after that will then be held as planned, in spring 2022.
All paid tickets will be automatically refunded. Koelnmesse will centrally issue these refunds in the coming weeks; there is nothing further for ticket buyers to do.
The INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR is the world's leading platform for innovation and business in the hardware sector. Some 3,000 exhibitors had been expected in 2020, including around 1,200 from China.
