Jewellery and watch show Inhorgenta Munich has announced the cancellation of its planned 2021 show.
The event was set for April after organiser Messe München postponed the show from its usual February timeslot.
Inhorgenta Munich will now next take place 11-14 February 2022.
The show organiser hopes to plug the gap with its Trendfactory virtual show, scheduled for autumn 2021.
Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München, commented: “Unfortunately, recent developments in connection with the coronavirus pandemic have not moved in the direction we had hoped.
“Far-reaching international travel and contact restrictions are still in place. In addition, the spreading of the mutated virus poses a significant risk in terms of the further infection process.
“Even if an in-person trade fair were possible in the first half of the year thanks to the local situation in Munich, the Inhorgenta Munich would not be able to live up to its claim of being a highly successful international flagship event. We have therefore decided to cancel Inhorgenta Munich 2021.”
Messe München announced the decision to postpone the now cancelled 2021 show back in November of last year.
