Mar 5, 2020

Waldkirch, 5 March 2020 – Deutsche Messe AG (DMAG) has postponed the HANNOVER MESSE 2020 to the week from 13 - 17 July 2020. DMAG is thus responding to global developments related to the Coronavirus. SICK will join the DMAG on its chosen path and rearrange all its activities appropriately.


It is difficult to predict how the Covid-19 situation will develop. So SICK AG completely understands DMAG’s decision. “The health of our customers, employees and partners is the absolute top priority. Nevertheless, we regret this rescheduling of the trade fair but will be there when it starts,” says Bernhard Müller. “The Hannover Messe is a good platform for us, enabling discussions with visitors from all over the world. We want to take advantage of this again this year,” adds Müller.
