Cancellation of WEBUILD Energiesparmesse Wels 2021

The current pandemic and the associated tightening of official regulations for trade fairs and events have forced Messe Wels to cancel the WEBUILD Energiesparmesse for 2021. Above all, internal company restrictions, limited travel opportunities and constantly changing legal regulations are leading to increasing uncertainty among exhibitors and visitors.

Against this background, large trade fairs cannot be successfully realised at present. The WEBUILD Energiesparmesse Wels from 24 to 28 February 2021 will therefore be postponed from 2021 to 2022 due to the current situation. With this decision, Messe Wels reacts foresightedly and gives exhibitors and partners the necessary planning security in time. "A WEBUILD Energiesparmesse 2021 on possibly half the exhibition space with fewer exhibitors and visitors is not in the interest of our customers and the success story of this fair. Therefore, we have decided to cancel without substitution and are already looking forward to the WEBUILD Energiesparmesse Wels 2022", explains Exhibition Director Robert Schneider, Managing Director of Messe Wels.

Ultimately, the cancellation of the world's leading trade fair ISH 2021 in Frankfurt planned for March and the associated cancellations of the market leaders - especially from the sanitary sector - for the WEBUILD Energiesparmesse was also decisive. The WEBUILD Energiesparmesse Wels remains a live event and, after numerous discussions with customers and associations, will not offer a digital trade fair in 2021. "WEBUILD is the most important national live event in the sanitary, heating and construction industry - we continue to focus on personal communication - people are in the spotlight - direct contact with customers will be more important than ever," continues Exhibition Director Schneider.

Naturally, Messe Wels is preparing itself for the changes in the trade fair industry in the future. "New concepts for hybrid events for content optimisation and new digital services for exhibitors and visitors are the challenges for the future," emphasises Exhibition Director Schneider.

Messe Wels is responding to the worsening situation surrounding COVID-19 by rescheduling its trade fair calendar for spring 2021, which means that no in-house exhibitions will be held in Wels until March 2021. Guest exhibitions and guest events will continue to take place as planned. "We assume that the situation will calm down in the coming months and that we will be able to hold safe and unrestricted trade and public fairs again in early summer or autumn next year. Guest exhibitions and guest events can still be held at the Wels Exhibition Centre," says Messe President Hermann Wimmer.

Exhibition halls are among the safest roofed buildings in which people can stay without the risk of infection. The room heights and room sizes, combined with a high level of fresh air supply and the many hygiene measures ensure that meetings at trade and public exhibitions and at all other events are possible without increased risk.
