Due to the increasing spread of Covid-19 in Europe and the associated ban on all major German events up to and including the end of August, the SMTconnect 2020 has been cancelled. The event in Nuremberg had previously been postponed from May to 28 – 30 July 2020. Currently, efforts are being made to offer a digital alternative to industry exchange with virtual formats.

According to a resolution passed by the Federal and State governments on 15 April 2020, all major events in Germany are prohibited up to and including the end of August 2020. For this reason, the international trade fair SMTconnect must also be cancelled.

Digital formats are currently being developed with which exhibitors and visitors can virtually exchange information on product innovations and trends in the industry. Further information will follow shortly.

„Even though we very much regret having to cancel this year‘s SMTconnect in Nuremberg, we hope that we will do our part to further contain the virus,“ confirms Petra Haarburger, Managing Director of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. „We are, however, determined to offer the electronics manufacturing community an alternative this year and are therefore working on an adequate digital solution that will nevertheless enable cross-industry exchange between the participants“.

The PCIM Europe tradeshow has also been cancelled, but will take the same measures as SMTconnect, and will instead be digital.

The next trade fair for microelectronic assemblies and systems will take place from 4 – 6 May 2021 in Nuremberg.
