Special Press Release: No Stanztec 2020!

Trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG have cancelled this year’s Stanztec trade fair for stamping technology. The exclusive industry platform for stamping all-rounders and sheet metal specialists was initially postponed from the originally planned event dates, namely 8 to 10 September 2020, due to the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It has now become clear that the currently specified safety and hygiene requirements for Stanztec cannot be implemented as they stand in the facilities of the Congress Centre Pforzheim.

“Unfortunately we’ll have to cancel this year’s Stanztec,” says Bettina Schall, managing director of P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. “In light of the requirements stipulated in the current concept for distancing, safety and hygiene for the well-being of exhibitors and visitors, the facilities at the CCP Pforzheim do not permit implementation of Stanztec. We very much regret this. However, practical implementation of the trade fair would not be possible under the given circumstances. And thus our current objective is to exercise good sense and foresight by concentrating on the organisation of Stanztec 2022. 

Stanztec takes place once every two years. The high-tech industry platform presents state-of-the-art stamping technology for the streamlined production of functional parts and assemblies. Expert visitors are able to scrutinise high-end offerings for stamping tools and stamping technology products. The entire spectrum of technologies, processes, products, tools and production equipment is represented at the event. Companies represented at Stanztec include global market leaders who are focusing on new technologies and the upcoming production transformation. As a leading trade fair, this specialist event is a well-established industry highlight for numerous companies.

Top performance, high precision and advanced specialisation come together on a regular basis at Stanztec. In 2018, the trade fair inspired 3407 expert visitors from 31 countries with technology highlights and was awarded the title “Jewel Amongst the Technical Trade Fairs” by exhibitors and guests. This benchmark has been set as a standard and will also apply to the next trade fair: in keeping with the motto “Meet the Technology Leaders”, experts from the fields of stamping technology and sheet metal processing are getting ready for the next Stanztec in the summer of 2022.
