Our primary concerns are for the health and safety of all attendees at our events, and delivering the very best audience for our exhibitors. With these factors in mind, we have taken the decision to postpone the expos to 29-30 September 2021”.

AMI announced the decision to reschedule the event on 1 February. Andy Beevers, events director at the company, said: “We felt it was important to make and announce this decision now, in order to end the current uncertainty and to allow exhibitors, speakers and attendees to plan effectively for the new dates. We have had tremendous support and understanding from the industry during this process and are now all looking to forward to a successful return to Essen at the end of September”.

Rita Andrews added: “Exhibitor numbers are up substantially compared to our launch event in 2018, and we want to ensure visitors can feel confident and comfortable in attending the expanded exhibitions”.

Admission to the four expos and their five conference theatres will continue to be free of charge. Registrations that have already been made for the June dates will still be valid, while anyone wanting to register for free tickets for the September dates can do so at www.ami.international/exhibitions
