The decision is also based on industry’s feedback received from exhibitors, buyers, and key partners.
The 2021 edition will provide an extended range of unique participation options which will enhance interactions, engagements, and learnings in the new normal. This approach will offer a seamless integrated experience through online and hybrid formats along with on-site exhibitions.
Mr. Bhupinder Singh, CEO Messe Muenchen India, comments, “Considering the current pandemic situation, December seems to be a better option to conduct the trade shows. It further enables us to provide a new platform for exhibitors and visitors to meet each other face-to-face and online and get back to business in a conducive and safe environment.”
Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman, Messe München GmbH also comments, “We support the decision to reschedule the events. We are also happy with the new extended platforms coming up. They offer the opportunity to reconnect, network and drive business for the electronic community despite the pandemic.”
Rajoo Goel, Secretary General, Electronic Industries Association of India (ELCINA) comments, “As the industry is witnessing a gradual recovery, safety remains our prime concern. The decision to postpone the events comes at the right time to ensure a safer environment for participants and deliver greater value for all stakeholders.”
electronica India and productronica India along with MatDispens will take place from December 16–18, 2021, at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), in Bengaluru.
