RecyclingAktiv and TiefbauLive postponed to September
By Leila Steed16 March 2021
The RecyclingAktiv and TiefbauLive international trade fair has been postponed by 12 weeks due to the impact of Coronavirus restrictions.
The event, which features waste removal, recycling, road construction and civil engineering equipment, was scheduled to take place in Rheinstetten in south west Germany in June this year.
Organiser Messe Karlsruhe said the bi-annual event would now be held between 2 and 4 September, 2021, at its original venue on the grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.
Britta Wirtz, CEO of Messe Karlsruhe, said: “Despite the sophisticated and flexible hygiene and safety measures put in place, there is still no clarity as to when the trade fair industry will be able to get back up and running, even after the recent meeting between German state and federal leaders on 3 March.
“Our customers, partners and colleagues needed planning security for the event to take place as previously planned in June 2021. As a result, we have unanimously decided together with our advisory board to reschedule the trade fair. We have found a new date that allows RecyclingAktiv and TiefbauLive to fit into the business calendar and has been confirmed by our association partners.”
The event was last held in 2019.
