ORGANISERS of ICE Europe, CCE International and InPrint Munich have confirmed the event, which was scheduled to take place in Munich in June this year, has been postponed due to the 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,” said Patrick Herman, event director of the converting, paper and print events at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions. “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.
“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 with customers and partners over the coming weeks and months.
