The giant IWA OutdoorClassics – one of the world’s largest exhibitions of its kind – has become the latest victim of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The show, which was due to take place in Nuremberg, Germany, from March 6 to 9, has been postponed to a later date. It follows in the footsteps of the likes of China Fish and Kofish, two leading fishing shows, which were put off to a later date this year.
Petra Wolf, Member of the Management Board of NürnbergMesse, said: “We hope that the industry will understand the decision to postpone. The aim of every exhibition has to be to create a special experience for exhibitors and visitors likewise and to enable networking and expansion of existing business relations.
“Unfortunately, this goal cannot be achieved under the current circumstances”.
The decision of the organiser of the world’s leading outdoor pursuits exhibition has put a question mark over other leading events in the industry as the health crisis grows across the globe.
