spoga+gafa canceled for 2020, rescheduled for 2021

The 2021 event will take place May 30-June 1 in Cologne.


Per a release, spoga+gafa 2020 has been canceled and rescheduled for May 30 - June 1, 2021 in Cologne. The statement read as follows:

"Despite high registration levels in the Spring of this year and extensive preparations, the current COVID situation has caused strong health, safety, economic and travel concerns among many of our registered exhibitors and visitors.

As the health and safety of our customers is of outmost importance to us, we reassessed the overall situation and made the decision to respond to the wishes of the majority of our exhibitors and visitors not to go forward with Orgatec 2020. This was a very difficult decision for us since we were fully prepared to conduct this event under well thought out and renewed safety standards.

At the request of the industry, we have also permanently moved the date for spoga+gafa to the first half of the year. In future, this means that the fair will be held at a time more convenient for orders by large segments of the industry."
