GORINCHEM – The sixteenth edition of Maritime Industry, which was planned to take place on May 18, 19 and 20, 2021, will be postponed to May 17, 18 and 19, 2022. Trade show organizer Easyfairs has come to this decision in consultation with the exhibitors and other partners. The most recent developments, such as the Covid-19 variants, the lockdown and the current prohibition on events, make it impossible to host trade shows on a short term basis and highly uncertain at a later stadium. “We, therefore, decided to postpone the trade show to 2022”, explains trade show organizer Easyfairs.
The postponement of Maritime Industry to 2022 has been decided in consultation with all parties involved. “We find it of high importance to listen to our exhibitors and their needs and wishes. We have made an inventory among our exhibitors with regards to their view to let Maritime Industry take place on the current date or to postpone it to 2022. The majority of our exhibitors chose to postpone their participation to 2022 and we, therefore, have decided to postpone the trade show for the maritime sector by one year.”
“By making this decision at an early stage, we have created clarity for our exhibitors, partners and visitors. The decision is a setback for all parties involved, as the trade show has already been postponed in 2020 due to the coronavirus. However, at this moment in time, the postponement to 2022 is the only correct decision. We will do everything we can to ensure we have a fantastic trade show next year. We already developed a few new concepts to introduce in 2020 and 2021, which connects with the current affairs of the maritime sector. Obviously, we will continue to work on these concepts and we will also include Next Level in 2022, our new top floor. It promises to be an unforgettable edition in every way.”
The next edition of Maritime Industry will take place on May 17, 18 and 19, 2022, in Evenementenhal Gorinchem. The trade show for the maritime sector celebrates their sixteenth edition that year. Every year, Maritime Industry hosts over 350 exhibitors and more than 10.000 professionals from the maritime sector.
