The organizers of Hannover Messe 2020 report that the show has been postponed to 13–17 July 2020, following Coronavirus developments.

‘With the July date, we offer our exhibitors the earliest possible time slot to present their innovations to a global audience and to initiate business,’ said Dr Jochen Köckler, chairman of Deutsche Messe AG. ‘In view of the global economic challenges triggered by the Coronavirus in the first half of the year, the new date offers great opportunities. Thus, the world's most important industrial trade fair can provide important impetus for the global economy at an early stage.’
