The spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has led to a great deal of uncertainty amongst all involved parties and we are receiving large numbers of enquiries regarding organisation of the “Stanztec” trade fair.
In view of the current situation and in close consultation with the trade fair advisory board, we have now decided to postpone the event which was originally scheduled to take place from 23 to 25 June 2020!
“Stanztec” is now scheduled to take place from
8 to 10 September 2020.
The CCP in Pforzheim has confirmed that it will provide us with suitable floor space for these dates.
Our decision is based on the resolution of 9 May 2020, by means of which the state government of Baden-Württemberg has once again amended its regulatory ordinance on protective measures against the spread of the coronavirus. The new regulations are valid as of Monday the 11th of May, 2020. Although the decree is initially only valid up to and including 14 June 2020, based on experience in other federal states, subsequent extension of the ban, or strict hygiene requirements which would be extremely difficult to implement at the CCP in Pforzheim, can be expected with sufficient probability.
Furthermore, uncertainty about a possible extension and its duration does not permit responsible planning for either the organisers or the exhibitors, and the event’s economic success would be placed in jeopardy due to the fact that a lack of exhibitors and visitors resulting from the still uncertain pandemic situation could not be ruled out.
Finally, and not least of all, we are also concerned about the health of exhibitors, employees and visitors, whom we do not want to expose to any avoidable risks.
We can offer all of the exhibitors the opportunity of switching over their existing exhibition contracts to the new event dates.
We ask for your understanding with regard to postponement of the trade fair, which is unfortunately unavoidable due to the ban on events and out of concern for the health of all involved parties.
