IFAT 2020 is cancelled: the next edition will be celebrated on 2022


After postponing IFAT 2020, the organizers of the event have decided to cancel this year’s edition and prepare the next fair (IFAT 2022) that will be held from May 30 to June 2, 2022.

The decision to cancel the 2020 edition is based on a survey among the IFAT exhibitors made by Messe München, in consultation with the Executive Board of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board and the conceptual partners of IFAT,. The results revealed that most respondents are against holding IFAT from September 7 to 11, 2020.

“A safe and successful IFAT 2020 for all concerned—that was our primary concern. Due to the still unforeseeable circumstances, this objective is unfortunately no longer feasible, even for the new date,” explains Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München.

The survey among all exhibitors registered at the fair was carried out online in the week after Easter. 1,933 exhibitor representatives from all over the world took part.
