IMEX in Frankfurt 2021 cancelled

Ray Bloom and Carina Bauer have announced the cancellation of IMEX in Frankfurt 2021, due to take place at Messe Frankfurt from 25 – 27 May.

“We know the timing of our announcement comes as a blow so early in 2021. More than anything, and like you, we’re eager to deliver some good news and mark a fresh start”, says Ray Bloom and Carina Bauer, from IMEX. But the news are not good. “When we were compelled to cancel IMEX in Frankfurt and IMEX America last year we hoped 2021 would see the early recovery of the industry and the IMEX shows. We still believe wholeheartedly that a resurgence will come, but sadly we do not believe it will happen in time for us to deliver a strong and successful event in May”.

“IMEX in Frankfurt is a hugely global event – our exhibitors and buyers represent 150+ countries – and we are, therefore, reliant on international travel routes being open in the coming weeks to allow our buyers and exhibitors from across the world to confirm their participation”. However, Ray and Carina say they are positive about the future and they expect to run IMEX America (9-11 November) this year.
