Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the ramifications for the truck and haulage industry concerned, Elmia Lastbil is postponed from August 2020 to 2021.
The decision has jointly been taken by the three organizations responsible for the trade show, Elmia AB, The Swedish Association for road transport companies and Albinsson & Sjöberg, in consultation with major business partners.
New dates for Elmia Lastbil 2021 will be announced as soon as possible.
They are closely following the coronavirus pandemic and its consequences on their customers’ business. It is a complex and challenging situation where they need to analyse and manage each tradeshow and event based on its specific possibilities and requirements.
“The decision to move Elmia Lastbil has been taken in close dialogue with industry representatives all with the aim to optimize conditions for everyone involved,” says Lotta Frenssen, ceo of Elmia AB. “Now, we are looking forward to an even stronger Elmia Lastbil in 2021.” “Elmia Lastbil is a very important venue for the entire haulage industry. By moving the tradeshow to 2021 we once again manifest Elmia Lastbil as the meeting place for our industry – critical for logistics and thus society,” says Rickard Gegö, ceo of Sveriges Akerifiretag. “The perfect mix of important political questions, experience exchange and the latest innovations and networking at Elmia Lastbil generate new ideas and create long term business development,” Gegö concluded.
“We all stand behind this decision and are currently exploring new alternatives to create industry related events,” says Eva-Marie Andersson, ceo of Albinsson & Sjoberg. “Print as well as digital magazine entail a solid foundation for a continuous correspondence with the exhibitors and visitors of Elmia Lastbil.”
As a meeting place, Elmia enjoys a powerful position – at the heart of the Nordic region where people and companies either have or are looking for new ideas, products and services. For more info, visit www.elmia.se/en/.
