LogiMAT 2020 cancelled

The 18th International Trade Show for Intralogistics Solutions & Process Management canceled

Despite the problems associated with the coronavirus, LogiMAT event organizer EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH in Munich, together with the Messe Stuttgart convention center and the relevant local authorities, had up to now considered it feasible to host LogiMAT 2020 - the 18th International Trade Show for Intralogistics Solutions & Process Management in Stuttgart. The local Office of Public Health in Esslingen saw no heightened threat to exhibitors and visitors.

At this point, however, the risk of infection has become more acute due to the increased and accelerated spread of the coronavirus in Germany, with the region of Stuttgart among those particularly affected. The responsible Office of Public Order in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, acting on the urgent recommendation of the responsible Office of Public Health for the region of Esslingen, instructed organizers at 5:17 p.m. at March 06th to cancel LogiMAT 2020.

“This is bitter, given the overwhelming importance of LogiMAT Stuttgart for the global intralogistics industry. The cancellation of LogiMAT 2020 for external, unforeseeable circumstances is unprecedented in the event’s 18-year history. Despite tremendous efforts working with Messe Stuttgart, we were unable to find a later date to host the event in 2020, so it is with great regret that we have decided to cancel LogiMAT 2020,” announced Christoph Huss, Managing Partner of EUROEXPO, explaining the cancellation.

The next LogiMAT will take place in Stuttgart from March 9 to 11, 2021.
