RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE put back to September 2021Published 10/5 at 11:24
Together with its advisory board, exhibitors and other associated parties, Messe Karlsruhe has taken the decision to reschedule its RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE demonstration trade fairs for waste removal, recycling, road construction and civil engineering.
The events will now take place from the 2 to 4 September 2021 on the grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. For CEO Britta Wirtz, it was a sensible decision: “Despite the sophisticated and flexible hygiene and safety measures put in place, there is still no clarity as to when the trade fair industry will be able to get back up and running, even after the recent meeting between German state and federal leaders on 3 March. Our customers, partners and colleagues needed planning security for the event to take place as previously planned in June 2021. As a result, we have unanimously decided together with our advisory board to reschedule the trade fair. We have found a new date that allows RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE to fit into the business calendar and has been confirmed by our association partners.”
RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE was originally due to take place from 10 to 12 June 2021. “A trade fair requires several months of preparation for organisers, exhibitors and service providers alike. In other words, we need planning security. By postponing the event by twelve weeks, we hope that the situation will have improved to such an extent that we will be able to welcome as many visitors to the demonstration trade fair as possible. This will require secure travel, open hotels and a higher vaccination rate. We will also use the extra time to implement the German government’s quick test strategy,” explains Wirtz.
