Fabric Days Spring.Summer 22, which was scheduled from March 2-4, 2021, has been cancelled, due to the high infection rates by the pandemic. Within the last weeks, the infection numbers in Germany and in Europe have unfortunately not definitively changed, which is why the government has prolonged the current lockdown until at least January 31, 2021.
“There are only seven weeks until the beginning of March 2021, unfortunately there is still no sign that the necessary decrease in infection rates will occur during this short period of time. Therefore, the organisers currently have to assume that there will be no political basis on which trade fairs will be approved in Germany by then. In addition, travel restrictions are still in effect and the health and security of all visitors, exhibitors and service providers is as always of the highest priority,” according to Munich Fabric Start.
“This decision is one of our hardest since the beginning of the pandemic, if not since we started organising trade shows for the fashion and textile industry. To this day, we believed that by joining forces we would be able to repeat our success from September. Especially thanks to the numerous exhibitor registrations and the great trust and support from the industry. Unfortunately, the situation is different in the current winter months and has made planning an event impossible,” Sebastian Klinder, managing director of Munich Fabric Start said in a press release.
