The IMEX Group has announced that IMEX Frankfurt 2022 will now take place from Tuesday, May 31st to June 2nd, 2022 rather than April 26-28.
According the show organisers, the increase in Omicron cases across Europe and around the world, together with current regulatory uncertainty caused Chairman Ray Bloom and CEO, Carina Bauer to review their plans, together with their host venue, city and industry partners. They have taken the opportunity to accept new dates offered by Messe Frankfurt, meaning the show could return to its more familiar timings in late spring.
As IMEX CEO Carina Bauer explains, “Everyone in our industry can see the current situation in Europe and knows that, with trade shows depending on such long lead times, it doesn’t support a show in April. We strongly believe that a late May edition of IMEX in Frankfurt will allow everyone to move ahead and plan with certainty and confidence. Having recently come off a highly successful IMEX America, we’re completely focused on building a strong return for IMEX in Frankfurt and we’re also keenly aware of how much our industry needs IMEX to bring everyone together and prove that business regeneration and good lead flow is not only viable but closer than some may think.”
Registration for IMEX in Frankfurt will go live the week of January 17, 2022.
