Messe Frankfurt has cancelled the International Consumer Goods Show. The event was intended to replace the Ambiente, Christmasworld and Paperworld shows that could not take place this year, and was scheduled for 17 to 20 April 2021 in Frankfurt. The Heimtextil fair that was due to be staged together with Techtextil and Texprocess on the new dates of 4 to 7 May 2021 has also been postponed until next year.
Put back again to 2022
These shows will now not happen until 2022. Heimtextil will take place from 11 to 14 January 2022, followed by Christmasworld from 28 January to 1 February 2022, and Paperworld and Creativeworld from 29 January to 1 February 2022. Ambiente will be opening its doors from 11 to 15 February 2022 in its customary slot.
There is currently no end to the pandemic in sight, according to Messe Frankfurt. Events are effectively banned in Germany, and ongoing international travel restrictions mean that it is impossible to make any trade fair plans for April or May 2021. "The coronavirus pandemic has taken centre-stage, and our plans have not escaped its impact. In light of the current situation, it would not be possible for us to satisfy our customers' requirements for international trade fairs in April or May," said Detlef Braun, member of the executive board of Messe Frankfurt.
Due to the fact that physical events are not possible, Messe Frankfurt has created numerous digital offerings for its customers. Consumer Goods Digital Day on April 20th, 2021, for example, offers customers the opportunity to get together at a digital location where they can engage in dialogue and obtain information. The content of the Digital Day will be focused on ways in which retailers can help their businesses, particularly since it has not been possible to hold any international flagship fairs in Frankfurt featuring the relevant presentation possibilities and supporting programmes since Ambiente 2020.
This content will be supplemented by the opportunities presented by Nextrade, the first order and data management portal for the home and living sector. Nextrade also offers attractive possibilities for manufacturers of finished home and household textiles to present their products, as well as a frequently used channel through which they can promote business with retailers and traders.
