Postponement to June 2021
Instead, the collective of converting, paper and print exhibitions will run from 22 – 24 June 2021. This decision was taken in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and continued uncertainties regarding travel restrictions and event planning by the authorities.
Commenting on the announcement, Patrick Herman, event director of the converting, paper and print events at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions, said: “Following careful consideration of various options we have come to the decision to hold the shows in June 2021. Based on the current international developments due to the Covid-19 pandemic, including further lockdowns and travel restrictions, we believe that the most responsible decision at this stage is to postpone.”
Combination of three dedicated trade events“The combination of three dedicated trade events evolving around converting and printing in the manufacturing process creates a multifaceted experience with increased opportunities and synergies. However, our main focus is to ensure a successful participation for our visitors and exhibitors. And in order to do that we need to get the conditions right,” concluded Patrick Herman.
The ICE Europe, CCE International and InPrint Munich events team will communicate closely with customers and partners over the coming weeks and months. They also thanked all of their exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their support during this challenging time.
