News Dates Announced
The organisers say they took the decision to reschedule the event following a deep analysis of the economic and sanitary framework on a global scale, having as its primary goal the protection of its almost 1700 exhibiting companies, 43% of which hail from outside of Italy. The postponement to 2022, a year identified by many analysts as that of the economic recovery, will enable the exhibiting companies to invest their financial resources at a more appropriate moment, thus being able to maximise business opportunities, which has always been a strong point of the Bologna exhibition. Following the postponement, the show will now take place in even-numbered years.
“The Covid-19 pandemic continues to register high rates of contagion, and severe limitations to international travels persist”, says Renzo Servadei, Autopromotec CEO. “A proper planning on the part of all the players of the sector is crucial to create a high-level event, but the uncertainty related to the measures to deal with the sanitary crisis makes it difficult for national and international exhibitors and visitors to plan their business travels well in advance.”
“The Pre-registration forms received from exhibiting companies up until now, however, are consistent with those of the past editions”, Mr Servadei continued. “In order to accompany the sector to 2022, Autopromotec is working on a digital project that, on May 2021, will support companies in view of the full restart of their activities, keeping them in touch with the global market.”
