Due to the increased spread of the coronavirus in Europe, Messe Frankfurt decided to postpone Light + Building after intensive consultations. The world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building technology is now scheduled to take place in Frankfurt in September.
The unexpected appearance of Covid-19 in Italy demanded a new analysis of the situation in close cooperation with the public health authorities of Frankfurt. A multistage 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.
The industry has left no doubt that it absolutely needs this platform for doing business. Accordingly, Messe Frankfurt wants to ensure that the opportunities created by Light + Building remain available to all market participants in the current season. Therefore, organizers have decided to postpone Light + Building until the middle and end of September.
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.
Light + Building is the sector’s most important meeting place for architects, the industry, the installation and retail-wholesale trades and planners. As an innovation forum and interdisciplinary market place, it not only facilitates business and making contacts but also helps ensure a sustainable future.
