New date: ceramitec 2021 postponed to June 2022

October 20, 2020

  • Next ceramitec will take place from June 21–24, 2022
  • The analytica and automatica trade shows will then run in parallel
  • Postponement desired by many representatives of the ceramic industry

ceramitec 2021 is postponed to June 21–24, 2022. The postponement was decided at the proposal of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board of ceramitec and is due to trade fair policy reasons.

“From today's perspective, ceramitec could take place thanks to Messe München's sophisticated protection and hygiene concept. However, due to trade fair policy reasons, the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board has asked for a postponement to the year 2022. We comply with this proposal,” says Gerhard Gerritzen, Member of Messe München’s Management Board and responsible for ceramitec. “We are all convinced that postponing the event by one year with the opportunity to have ceramitec running in parallel to analytica and automatica is the right way to then realize a successful fair on site with the usual high share of international participants.”

The decision to postpone the event was taken by Messe München in close cooperation with the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board of ceramitec, which includes many companies and associations of the ceramics industry. The Chairman of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board, Dr. Jürgen Blumm, Managing Director of Netzsch Gerätebau GmbH, explains: “The majority of partners and exhibitors would like to see ceramitec 2021 postponed, as they see the success of their trade fair participation endangered. At the same time, ceramitec's international importance for the entire industry is so great that we do not want to take this risk.”

Even in this turbulent time, Messe München and the ceramitec team see themselves as partners of the industry: “We will continue to develop and digitally complement our platform to add fresh momentum to the ceramics industry—both at our home base in Munich and worldwide,” explains Gerhard Gerritzen. “We look forward to making ceramitec 2022 a complete success together with our partners and customers.”
