The organizers of hardmetals trade fair ceramitec have decided to postpone the 2021 show until 21–24 June 2022 for ‘trade fair policy reasons’.

The decision to postpone the event was taken by Messe München in cooperation with the exhibitors’ advisory board of ceramitec, which includes many companies and associations of the ceramics industry, the company said.

‘The majority of partners and exhibitors would like to see ceramitec 2021 postponed, as they see the success of their trade fair participation endangered,’ said chairman of the exhibitors’ advisory board, Dr Jürgen Blumm, MD of Netzsch Gerätebau GmbH. ‘At the same time, ceramitec's international importance for the entire industry is so great that we do not want to take this risk.’
