New Date for the GrindTec 2020:
November 10th to 13th in the Augsburg Exhibition Centre
The new date for the GrindTec 2020 has been found: the world's leading trade fair for grinding technology will take place from November 10th to 13th at the Augsburg Exhibition Centre. This means that the sequence of days the industry wanted - namely, starting on a Tuesday and ending on a Friday - could also be achieved. The GrindTec is the most important platform for the grinding technology sector worldwide. Particularly in economically challenging times, the industry needs this event, which contributes significantly to the promotion of exports.
In close coordination with the authorities and municipal offices responsible for the current situation concerning the spread of the coronavirus, and taking into account the recommend actions for major events provided by the Robert Koch Institute, the trade fair organiser AFAG decided on Sunday, March 1st, to postpone the GrindTec 2020 until autumn. This decision was backed and endorsed by the event's technical sponsor FDPW - the Precision Toolmakers Trade Association - as well as by the fair's Advisory Board and by other large GrindTec exhibitors. The City of Augsburg and the responsible administrative districts have also lent their support to the move.
Henning and Thilo Könicke, Managing Directors of trade fair organiser AFAG Messen und Ausstellungen: "We're pleased that we can inform our partners, exhibitors and visitors of a new date for the GrindTec 2020 at short notice, and thus can already give them some certainty for their planning. And we're delighted that the world's leading trade fair for grinding technology can continue to stay in Augsburg and would like to thank the City of Augsburg for their support with the short-term implementation. In determining this new date, we've taken particular care to ensure that the event does not clash with other events in the sector. We believe that we have found the best possible date under the current circumstances".
Starting with the next event in 2022, the GrindTec will again take place at its traditional date in March.
