Due to the ongoing travel and contact restrictions designed to stop the spread of the global coronavirus pandemic, Messe München has decided to cancel INHORGENTA MUNICH 2021. The decision was taken in detailed consultation with the advisory board, as well as exhibitors, visitors and partners of Europe’s leading platform for jewelry, watches and gemstones. The focus is now on preparing for a successful INHORGENTA MUNICH 2022—scheduled to take place from February 11 to 14—and on further developing the digital INHORGENTA TRENDFACTORY. The next edition of this series will be held in the fall of this year.
Last November, Messe München had initially decided to postpone INHORGENTA MUNICH 2021 from February to April. The aim was to provide exhibitors with increased planning security. “Unfortunately, recent developments in connection with the coronavirus pandemic have not moved in the direction we had hoped. Far-reaching international travel and contact restrictions are still in place. In addition, the spreading of the mutated virus poses a significant risk in terms of the further infection process. Even if an in-person trade fair were possible in the first half of the year thanks to the local situation in Munich, the INHORGENTA MUNICH would not be able to live up to its claim of being a highly successful international flagship event,” says Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München. “We have therefore decided to cancel INHORGENTA MUNICH 2021.”
As Europe’s leading platform for jewelry, watches and gemstones, INHORGENTA creates opportunities for industry members to showcase their products, present their brands and exchange ideas and information all year round. “Given these challenging times it is all the more important for us to provide the industry with future prospects. We do this by offering a range of tailor-made services designed to meet the growing need for guidance, networking and knowledge transfer”, says Elena Jasper, Exhibition Director of INHORGENTA. Following the success of the first digital INHORGENTA TRENDFACTORY last year, the team is working on continuing the format in the fall of 2021. A specific date will be announced soon.
