INTERLIFT POSTPONED TO 2022 - THE AUGSBURG INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR FOR THE ELEVATOR TECHNOLOGY
Today, the international trade fair Interlift issued an official press release announcing the postponement the next edition to April 2022.
PRISMA will be present with its own stand, as per tradition, and supports the choice of the organizers.
The press release reads:
"The impact of the ongoing Corona pandemic on the global economy is enormous. The trade fair industry is one of the sectors that has been severely affected. Trade shows thrive on contacts, encounters and personal exchange, which is why the implementation of trade shows in particular is very much restricted by pandemic control measures. There are increasing signs and reports worldwide of successful containment of the pandemic, and growing experience in dealing with the virus is leading to further optimization of hygiene concepts for events. Nevertheless, it is becoming apparent that there will still be requirements for infection control at events in October 2021 and that travel restrictions will still apply at that time.
Henning and Thilo Könicke, the two managing directors of interlift organizer AFAG, also assume this: "Our top priority is the success of our customers. For a leading international trade fair like interlift, it is essential that decision-makers from all over the world can travel to Augsburg unhindered. To what extent this will already be possible in October, no one can say with certainty today. In close coordination with the professional sponsor VFA-Interlift e.V. and the trade fair advisory board, AFAG has decided to comply with the wishes of many exhibitors and has therefore postponed the interlift to a later date.
The interlift will now take place from Tuesday, April 26 to Friday, April 29, 2022. The general conditions should have improved considerably by then and allow the event to be held successfully and safely for exhibitors and visitors".
