The trade show pairing of Fensterbau Frontale and Holz-Handwerk 2022 has been rescheduled to July 12-July 15. It was originally scheduled for March 29 to April 1. NürnbergMesse and VDMA Holzbearbeitungsmaschinen, the organizer of Holz-Handwerk, jointly decided to postpone the combined event after consulting with exhibitors and out of a desire to enable all participants to plan with confidence, according to a news release.
“Although we are allowed to continue to run exhibitions, our customers still have a strong sense of uncertainty,” says Petra Wolf, member of the management board, NürnbergMesse. “And given the dynamic nature of the infection situation, we unfortunately cannot rule out the possibility that legislation at a national and state level will have to be adapted or made more stringent at short notice.”
Exhibitions and congresses have been held successfully again at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg since September 2021, subject to a robust hygiene concept, and exhibitors and visitors have responded positively and with a sense of responsibility. At the same time, NürnbergMesse is paying attention to the individual needs of its customers and participating sectors, which can result in different decisions for different events. The course taken by the Covid-19 pandemic and the postponement of other industry events in the first quarter of 2022 have recently contributed to the uncertainty among the exhibitors.
Elke Harreiss, director Fensterbau Frontale, and Stefan Dittrich, director Holz-Handwerk, add: “By acting early to reschedule Fensterbau Frontale and Holz-Handwerk to a date in summer, we are accommodating the wishes of many exhibitors to provide a meeting place for the industry where they can network and do business in a positive atmosphere in 2022. To achieve this, we are relying on a hygiene and access concept that has already proven successful and combines our customers’ needs for personal interaction with safety in the best possible way. We are very grateful for the many constructive conversations with the advisory boards and industry representatives, which provided significant encouragement for this decision. Together with our exhibitors and partners, we are looking forward to meeting again in Nuremberg between 12 and 15 July 2022, with positive interaction between industry colleagues, profitable new business contacts, and all kinds of trends and inspiration for business.”
