Mack Brooks Exhibitions has announced that inter airport Europe, the airport exhibition, will be rescheduled once more after the last date change announced in April. The 23rd edition of the event will take place from 9 - 12 November 2021 following extensive conversations with all exhibitors, visitors and partners over recent weeks who have expressed their preference to hold the next show as early as possible in November 2021, in order to avoid clashes with other events and holidays.
Exhibitors to present indoors
Speaking about the announcement, Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions, said: “Following the consideration of feedback we have received from all stakeholders after the postponement in April, we have been able to secure the earliest slot to hold inter airport Europe in November 2021 and are pleased to announce this new date. The November slot is not an ideal solution for us; however, one week ahead of the previous announcement fits a lot better into the overall event schedule. All outdoor exhibitors who have concerns over the weather in November will be able to present their equipment indoors in 2021.”
Recovery of the airport industry
The past months have been challenging, in particular for the airport industry. There has been a drastic drop in air travel, orders for new equipment and terminal extensions have been postponed indefinitely, which poses a lot of challenges for equipment and technology providers as well as airports worldwide in dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
inter airport Europe, as the world’s platform for this community and a partner of the airport industry, will be supporting the recovery and reflect the current state of the industry.
New concept for the upcoming shows
“We believe it is our duty to assist through these extraordinary times by offering a flexible approach and concept for inter airport Europe for the next few years which we are currently developing. Our commitment is to offer our industry the marketplace it needs to emerge from this crisis quicker and stronger,” said Nicola Hamann about the current developments in the airport industry and how inter airport Europe will be adjusting as part of the recovery journey of the industry.
Further information on the new concept for the upcoming shows will be available from September.
The inter airport Europe Team will communicate closely with customers and partners over the coming weeks and months and thank their exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their support during this time.
