The organizers of Metallurgy Russia and Litmash Russia, originally scheduled for 9 to 11 June 2020 have been postponed to 8–10 June 2021.

The two metal trade fairs have been organised by Metal Expo/Russia and Messe Düsseldorf GmbH for the last ten years.

‘Against the backdrop of the most recent developments in terms of COVID-19 the re-scheduling of the two metal trade fairs was inevitable – but the only right decision to take in view of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and members of staff,’ said Friedrich-Georg Kehrer, portfolio director at Messe Düsseldorf. ‘With this move we are complying with the recommendations made by the Russian Ministry of Health as well as of the crisis team of the German Federal Government.’
