automatica 2020 will not take place –
a new format for 2021 is under development
Due to the increasing number of infections, travel restrictions have been imposed for an increasing number of countries and regions in recent weeks. In addition, many German and international corporations have issued internal travel bans.
For this reason, the automatica exhibition, scheduled for December 8–11, 2020 will not take place. This decision has been taken by Messe München in agreement and close coordination with the conceptual sponsor VDMA Robotics + Automation and the automatica Advisory Board. In coordination with the industry, Messe München is now developing a compact new in-person event for mid-2021, which will be adapted to the specific circumstances in times of the coronavirus. In addition, auto-matica is further expanding its digital offering.
In March, Messe München decided to move the exhibition date from June to December, the latest possible date of the year to ensure a safe in-person exhibition and a create a hygiene protocol.
Messe München is developing a new event format for summer 2021 in cooperation with the industry. Find more infromation on the automatica website.
