DACH+HOLZ International will not be taking place as originally planned in February 2022 in Cologne.
Organisers say the continuing coronavirus pandemic and unpredictable framework conditions for holding trade fairs as set by government policy make it impossible to plan such an event with any certainty.
DACH+HOLZ International Postponed
DACH+HOLZ International will now be held from 5 to 8 July 2022 (Tuesday to Friday) at the Cologne Exhibition Centre.
The decision has been taken with the agreement of the German trade federations responsible for the trade fair – ZVDH (Central Association of German Roofing Contractors) and Holzbau Deutschland (Association of German Master Carpenters) and GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH
The organisers added “The conditions for a successful and relaxed trade event from 15 to 18 February 2022 have changed dramatically for the worse in the past few days and weeks as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and changing government guidelines.”
“It is currently impossible to predict whether the situation will ease again by February. Our primary goal was and remains to host a DACH+HOLZ 2022 that promises success for all participants. In this increasingly acute situation, we can no longer guarantee this for the planned time slot of the event,” explained Klaus Plaschka, Managing Director of GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH.
