The GET Nord 2020, which should take place at the Hamburg trade fair site from the 19th to 21st November, is cancelled. This is the result of intensive consultation between representatives of the industry, the visitors’ associations and the wholesale trade. The reason behind it is that numerous exhibition companies and partners have indicated that taking part in the GET Nord 2020 is no longer possible for them due to concerns for employee health.
“Although trade fairs may be carried out in the meantime under certain conditions, we understand and respect this decision. The welfare of all participants is also our highest priority”, said Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of Hamburg Messe and Congress. “A reduced GET Nord with a lower participation of larger exhibitors and partners would not do our claim of a high-quality trade fair with great value use for exhibitors and visitors any justice. Therefore, we have decided to suspend the GET Nord this year, also in order to create planning security for exhibitors and partners and to avoid unnecessary costs.”
Hamburg Messe and Congress has already begun with the planning of the GET Nord 2022 to be held from 17-19 November 2022 in the usual high quality.
