Mack-Brooks Exhibitions is postponing ICE Europe, CCE International and InPrint Munich 2021 to 22-24 June next year.

The co-located events were planned to take place at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany on 9-11 March 2021. This decision has been made in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and continued uncertainties regarding travel restrictions and event planning by the authorities.

Patrick Herman, event director of the converting, paper and print events at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions, said, ‘Following careful consideration of various options we have come to the decision to hold the shows in June 2021. Based on the current international developments due to the Covid-19 pandemic, including further lockdowns and travel restrictions, we believe that the most responsible decision at this stage is to postpone.’

ICE Europe and CCE International have shared a show floor for a number of years, with InPrint Munich added on as a third co-located show as the combined events target opportunities in the fast-growing packaging sector.

Mr Herman continued, ‘The combination of three dedicated trade events evolving around converting and printing in the manufacturing process creates a multifaceted experience with increased opportunities and synergies. However, our main focus is to ensure a successful participation for our visitors and exhibitors. And in order to do that we need to get the conditions right.’
