New dates announced for ceramitec as 2021 event postponed
October 23, 2020
The next edition of ceramitec will now be held from June 21–24, 2022. Typically held once every three years, the trade show last took place in April 2018, but the decision has been taken by the organisers, Messe München, in close cooperation with the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board of ceramitec, to postpone the 2021 event due to trade fair policy.
ceramitec is one of the leading international trade shows for ceramics, and covers the full spectrum of the industry from classic ceramics to raw materials, heavy clay and industrial ceramics, through to technical ceramics and Powder Metallurgy. In total, 633 exhibitors from thirty-eight countries and more than 15,000 participants from ninety-three countries attended ceramitec 2018.
“From today’s perspective, ceramitec could take place thanks to Messe München’s sophisticated protection and hygiene concept,” stated Gerhard Gerritzen, a member of Messe München’s Management Board and responsible for ceramitec. “However, due to trade fair policy reasons, the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board has asked for a postponement to the year 2022. We comply with this proposal.”
“We are all convinced that postponing the event by one year with the opportunity to have ceramitec running in parallel to analytica and automatica is the right way to then realise a successful fair on-site with the usual high share of international participants,” Gerritzen continued.
Dr Jürgen Blumm, chairman of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board and Managing Director of Netzsch Gerätebau GmbH, commented, “The majority of partners and exhibitors would like to see ceramitec 2021 postponed, as they see the success of their trade fair participation endangered. At the same time, ceramitec’s international importance for the entire industry is so great that we do not want to take this risk.”
“We will continue to develop and digitally complement our platform to add fresh momentum to the ceramics industry—both at our home base in Munich and worldwide. We look forward to making ceramitec 2022 a complete success together with our partners and customers,” Gerritzen concluded.
