Speaking about the announcement, managing director Nicola Hamann said: “We are all aware that this has been a challenging year so far for the exhibition industry. Many events had to be postponed to later in the year or next year due to the repercussions of COVID-19. Consequently, this also affects the exhibition calendar for 2021. In close co-ordination with all partners involved, we had to reschedule IAE 2021 to accommodate these changes.”IAE 2021 will still occupy halls B5, B6 and C6, as well as the Outdoor Area, of the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany and will be accessible via the Entrances East and Northeast. Following this change for 2021, Mack Brooks said the exhibition will resume to the usual early October slot for subsequent shows.

Ms Hamann added: “The current crisis has [had] a significant impact on all of us. We trust that everyone in the airport community will join forces and we will come out of this unprecedented crisis with stronger and closer bonds. We thank our exhibitors and partners for their ongoing support and will work continuously for IAE next year to be the main meeting point for the entire airport community to share expertise, knowledge and innovation, and to conclude business.”

As usual, Mack Brooks has been working closely with the German Airport Technology & Equipment group, GATE. Kay Bärenfänger, president of GATE, commented: “The future may bear many challenges, but we believe that we can overcome these through supporting our members, the entire airport community and the inter airport show as their main platform and by ensuring we create a solid base for recovery once this pandemic is contained. We value very much the support, exchange and co-operation that has always existed between us and our members and the inter airport show and are looking to rise from this as one united airport community.”
