Rapid.Tech 3D, Germany’s longest-running conference and trade fair for additive technologies, has been postponed until May 2021. Current developments linked to COVID-19 have made it impossible to host Rapid.Tech 3D from 5 to 7 May 2020 as originally scheduled.
“Unfortunately, due to the current development of the coronavirus pandemic, we have to postpone Rapid.Tech 3D 2020 until 4 to 6 May 2021,” said Michael Kynast, CEO of Messe Erfurt GmbH, and Professor Gerd Witt, Chair of the Rapid.Tech 3D Advisory Board.
“This decision is not one that we have taken easily. Before making it, we consulted extensively with the members of our Advisory Board and our industry partners. The safety and health of all our exhibitors, visitors, partners and employees is our highest priority. Postponing Rapid.Tech 3D is a difficult step to take, but it is the most responsible response to the current situation,” Kynast and Witt added. The team in charge of the event took the decision to postpone it now so as to avoid having to cancel at the last moment.
In order to maintain a presence for Rapid.Tech 3D on the event market this year despite everything, the advisory board has recommended assessing the feasibility of hosting a Rapid.Tech 3D – Conference 2020 with high-profile speakers for 1.5 days at the beginning of September 2020.
Some 4,500 visitors from 27 countries travelled to Erfurt for the 2019 event to attend the specialist conference and see for themselves the presentations by 180 exhibitors from twelve countries. A considerable 83 per cent of exhibitors said they were satisfied or very satisfied with their trade fair appearance, and 76 per cent said they would recommend the event.
The next Rapid.Tech 3D will take place from 4 to 6 May 2021.
