English Español UNITI expo moves date to February 2021

The European trade show has decided to move its date from May 2020 to February 2021 due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Last update:

UNITI expo is postponing its event due to the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID19). The next edition of Europe’s leading trade fair for the fuel retailing and car wash industries will now take place February 9 – 11, 2021.

With the spread of the virus in Germany, Europe and around the world, and after three weeks of discussions with Messe Stuttgart, the exhibition centre where the trade show takes place, the organizers selected February of 2021 as the new date.

"Up until a few weeks ago, we were all still hoping that the situation would improve by spring. Unfortunately, the rapid spread of the pandemic has made it increasingly unlikely that the fair will be held successfully at the originally planned time. Since then, we have been working tirelessly to find a suitable alternative date that ensures the health of our exhibitors and visitors as well as the success of the fair," explains Elmar Kühn, Managing Director of UNITI-Kraftstoff GmbH.

UNITI expo 2021 will maintain the same hall configuration, size and duration as the original date of May 26 – 28 of 2020. Halls 1, 3 and 5, which were already planned for May, will be occupied with a total of 40,000 m² of exhibition space. The three forums with their complete conference programme and the unique GenussGARTEN FOODCOURT will also be kept just as planned.

"The crisis has shown us once again the strong relationship we have with the industry. The understanding and support from our partners and exhibitors is outstanding, and so far all the exhibitors that have spoken to the UNITI expo team have given assurances that they will also be present on the new date," says Ben Boroewitsch, part of the UNITI expo organizing team.

In the coming days, all exhibitors will receive an official addendum to their exhibitor contracts to confirm the new dates.

With this decision UNITI expo follows the example of numerous events and trade shows around the world. More information will follow.
