DOMOTEX 2021 Becomes Digital-Only Event


After initially being postponed to May 18-20, DOMOTEX will no longer take place as a hybrid trade show format this year. 

Due to the ongoing global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, show organisers Deutsche Messe AG have decided that DOMOTEX 2021 cannot take place as a physical event in Hannover. Currently, an alternative digital business platform is planned in form of the DOMOTEX DIGITAL DAY on 20 May, 2021. The focus element of this platform is a digital conference that will address current and forward-looking topics in the international flooring industry.

Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Management Board of Deutsche Messe AG, said: "Trade shows like DOMOTEX, which are characterised by a very high level of internationality on both sides, amongst exhibitors as well as visitors, have a long planning period. Following the recent surge in global coronavirus cases, accompanied by lockdowns, worldwide travel warnings and restrictions and quarantine requirements, we now have had to make this decision. Unfortunately, for the first time in its 32-year history, we will not be able to organise DOMOTEX in 2021 as a physical trade show on our exhibition grounds in Hannover. 

"Even a hybrid DOMOTEX is not realistic in the current situation, as it would require a certain proportion of physical exhibitors and visitors on-site, combined with travel from all parts of the world. We have therefore decided to organize DOMOTEX as a purely digital event, in order to give our customers the necessary planning security from now on."

DOMOTEX 2021 will take place as a digital-only event on May 20. The next hybrid DOMOTEX is scheduled for January 13-16, 2022, at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds.
