Due to the continuing high rate of infections and the associated restrictions, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH has decided to cancel this year’s SMTconnect tradeshow. The event was supposed to take place in Nuremberg, in the beginning of May 2021.
Discussions with exhibitors held in recent months, as well as feedback from visitors, have shown that the focus within the SMT community is about face-to-face interaction. This interest is met by the organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, which led to the decision to not hold a digital trade show.
„We are very sorry to have to cancel the on-site event in May again. However, the present situation of the pandemic does not allow us to provide the necessary planning security for the community in spring,“ explains Anthula Parashoudi, Vice President SMTconnect.
Usually taking place simultaneously, PCIM Europe has been postponed to 31 August – 2 September 2021. It will be complemented by the digital format, the „PCIM Europe digital days“.
The SMTconnect will be held again in its usual form in Nuremberg from 10 – 12 May 2022.
