The next edition of INHORGENTA MUNICH, which had been set for February 19-22, 2021, has been rescheduled to take place from April 15-19, 2021, in order to make allowances for the pandemic and ensure the strictest safety standards for exhibitors and visitors.
“By doing so, INHORGENTA MUNICH is offering its exhibitors and visitors planning reliability at an early stage,” the trade fair said in a statement.
Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München, said: “With the new dates and by extending the duration by a day, we are offering our customers not only excellent conditions, but also more security by equalizing the flow of visitors.
“We are now looking ahead and working together with the industry to organize a successful INHORGENTA MUNICH in April 2021.”
Broad approval for the change of dates
“The new dates in April are the necessary step in offering exhibitors and visitors an excellent platform for their businesses and following up on the previous successes of INHORGENTA,” says Stefanie Mändlein, Exhibition Director of INHORGENTA.
“The one-time decision to postpone INHORGENTA MUNICH to April makes allowances for the pandemic and helps us to carry out a safe trade fair for everyone involved in spring 2021. As a physical gathering of industry and commerce, INHORGENTA MUNICH is indispensable to the sector. It is the anchor of a reconfiguring trade fair landscape. This decision was made by the Advisory Board together with Messe München and has the support of the associations,” added Joachim Duenkelmann, Managing Director of the Federal Association of Jewellers, Jewellery and Watch Retailers (BVJ), Dr. Guido Grohmann, Managing Director of the Association of Jewellery, Watches, Clocks & Supplying Industry and Joerg Lindemann, Director General of the Federal Association of the Precious Stones and Diamond Industry.
The decision has also proved to be very popular among visitors and exhibitors.
This was confirmed by Anja Heiden, CEO of the Jewellery Division at Wempe: “The early planning security is beneficial to us all. That’s why I think it’s good and the right thing to do to have the show take place in April.”
Nicole Ripp, of Groh + Ripp is also supportive: “INHORGENTA MUNICH has become one of the most important trade fairs in Europe. It has managed to gain new, renowned exhibitors that have been presenting in Basel for years. We very much appreciate that we now have more notice to plan for the new dates in April 2021.”
