Due to the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe and on the basis of the recommendations of the Bavarian State Gov-ernment as well as of the responsible health authorities, Messe München feels compelled to postpone analytica 2020. This measure is taken in consultation with the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board and in re-sponsibility for the health of exhibitors and visitors. analytica will now take place from October 19 to 22, 2020.
“Under the given circumstances, opening analytica in late March would not be justifiable towards our customers, in particular from a medical and eco-nomic perspective,” says Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Management of Messe München and responsible for analytica. “Now we are looking forward with confidence to host a successful analytica 2020 jointly with the industry in the fall of this year.”
The decision to postpone the event was taken by Messe München in close cooperation with the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board and in consideration of exhibitor feedback received by the industry association SPECTARIS. The vast majority of the exhibitors surveyed recommend postponing analytica. “Post-poning it to the new date in fall is the measure necessary to offer manufacturers and visitors an optimal platform for their business, and to build on analytica’s previous success,” emphasises Siegbert Holtermüller, Chairman of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board of analytica and Head of Sales Europe Life Science of Olympus.
