The first-ever Summer Edition of Spielwarenmesse in Nuremberg has been cancelled.
The show was due to open its doors this July after being postponed in January, but following the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, it has been decided to cancel the event and to focus instead on Spielwarenmesse 2022.
“Initially, we received excellent feedback about the Summer Edition from both exhibitors and visitors,” said Ernst Kick, CEO at Spielwarenmesse eG.
“In recent weeks, however, the disappointingly slow improvement in the pandemic has been fuelling uncertainty across the industry. Our top priority remains the health and safety of all our participants.”
From now on, all energy will be channelled into the regular Spielwarenmesse which is scheduled to run from February 2nd to 6th 2022 and will take place in conjunction with Spielwarenmesse Digital.
Kick added: “We’re receiving such a positive response from across the board. The market players cannot wait to get together again in February. And we’re very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Nuremberg for the 72nd Spielwarenmesse.”
