It's been confirmed that Fruit Logistica Special Edition 2021 has been canceled. The event was to take place on 18-20 May of 2021. The organization states the event had to be canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The date for next year has been set on 9-11 February 2022.
"Today we have to inform you that Messe Berlin is cancelling Fruit Logistica Special Edition 2021 on 18-20 May 2021 because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in Europe and the rest of the world.
"We wanted to make an on-site event happen in May. And it resonated: more than 600 companies from Europe and the rest of the world were registered. But the prospects for international business travel to Berlin and large face-to-face gatherings are too low. Under these circumstances it’s simply impossible to meet face-to-face."
Watch the video message from Fruit Logistica’s Senior Product Manager Madlen Miserius about the decision.
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you as an exhibitor for your trust and patience. Rest assured that we will keep you updated on the next steps.
"At the moment our whole team is hard at work to prepare the FRUIT LOGISTICA 2022 show. We will do everything to ensure our 30th edition will be a vibrant on-site event. We hope that we will then be able to welcome you again as an exhibitor in Berlin.
"Save the date: 9 to 11 February 2022."
