The next EuroBLECH will run from 25 – 28 October 2022. Click image to enlargeEuroBLECH, the world’s largest sheet metal technology exhibition, has been canceled. The event was scheduled for March 2021 at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds in Germany.

The next EuroBLECH, the 26th iteration of the international exhibition, will return to its normal event cycle and run from 25 – 28 October 2022.

This decision was taken in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and following conversations with all exhibitors and partners that have taken place over the past weeks and months. Uncertainties around continued travel restrictions were also a contributing factor.

“Following extensive conversations with all participants we have come to the decision to return to our normal event cycle and hold the next show in its original event slot,” said Nicola Hamann, managing director of Mack-Brooks Exhibitions. “Based on the current international developments due to the Covid-19 pandemic, covering further lockdown and travel restrictions, we believe that it is the most responsible decision at this stage to postpone. This early announcement will hopefully allow time for the impact of COVID-19 across the world to stabilise and when safe to do so, ensure that the event can continue its critical role in bringing the global sheet metal working industry together again. By making this decision now we allow for planning security.”

The company’s virtual event, EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit,will broadcast over the internet a series of digital events in 2021, offering opportunities for the sheet metal working industry to regularly meet, network and conduct business in a safe online format.

“It was very apparent at EuroBLECH DIGITAL, that there currently is a need for the industry to get together and also discover latest innovations to kick-start their business efforts,” continued Hamann.

Further information on the schedule of the digital event series will be announced in the future.
