Light + Building postponed to September 2020

The Light + Building trade fair has been postponed to September 2020. It was originally scheduled to take place from 8 to 13 March 2020.

The Light + Building trade fair in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) has been postponed. The reason is the increasing spread of the coronavirus in Europe. Messe Frankfurt has announced that the world's leading trade fair for lighting and building services technology will now be held in Frankfurt between the middle and end of September 2020. The fair was originally scheduled to take place from 8 to 13 March 2020.

The fair organiser explains the background to this decision in a press release. It states: "The unexpected appearance of Covid-19 in Italy since last weekend demanded a new analysis of the situation in close cooperation with the public health authorities of the city of Frankfurt. A multi-stage health check on guests from China has been called for, the implementation of which would be extremely challenging for Messe Frankfurt. Additionally, more and more travel restrictions are being put into place, thus making it difficult for both visitors and exhibitors to attend the fair. Therefore, the organisers have decided to postpone Light + Building. This decision is supported by the cooperation partners of Light + Building, the Electrical Installation Systems and the Light Working Groups of the Central Association of the German Electrical and Electronic Engineering Industry (ZVEI) and the Central Association of German Electricians (ZVEH). The foremost Italian associations also back this decision. After Germany, the largest groups of exhibitors and visitors come from China and Italy."
