EUROTIER will now take place between 9-12 February 2021 after organisers said that the coronavirus pandemic continues to cause international uncertainty.

It is the latest in a long list of international and domestic agricultural shows that have been cancelled or postponed this year.

EuroTier is one of the world’s largest agricultural shows and, along with EnergyDecentral usually takes over the Hannover Messe exhibition hall in early November on alternative years.

Organiser DLG has made the assumption it will not be possible for the event to go ahead this year “in a form that is appropriate for such leading international trade fairs”.

Reinhard Grandke, chief executive at DLG, said: “The postponement of EuroTier and EnergyDecentral has been a difficult decision.

“The international nature of both exhibitions, for both exhibitors and visitors, is precisely what makes the events the global meeting point for experts and decision-makers.

“These two trade fairs are the meeting place for the entire industry, with the primary objective of all participants being interactive dialogue.

“DLG is convinced that postponing EuroTier and EnergyDecentral until 9 to 12 February 2021 will not only do justice to the reputations of both events, as leading international trade fairs but will further ensure maximum opportunity for planning and preparation for exhibitors and visitors alike.”
