Mack Brooks Exhibitions has announced that inter airport Europe, the world’s leading airport exhibition, will be rescheduled. The 23rd edition of the event, which was planned to take place at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany in early October 2021, has been rescheduled to 16 – 19 November 2021 following a series of exhibition postponements and a subsequent knock-on effect on the 2021 exhibition calendar, following the recent COVID-19 developments globally.
Speaking about the announcement, Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions, said, “We are all aware that this year 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. We therefore, in close coordination with all partners involved, had to reschedule inter airport Europe 2021 to accommodate these changes”.
inter airport Europe 2021 will continue to occupy halls B5, B6 and C6 as well as the known Outdoor Area of the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany and be accessible via the Entrances East and Northeast. Following this change for 2021 the exhibition will resume to the usual early October slot for subsequent shows.

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 between all of us. We thank our exhibitors and partners for their ongoing support and will work continuously for inter airport Europe next year to be the main meeting point for the entire airport community to share expertise, knowledge and innovation, and to conclude business”, continues Nicola Hamann. inter airport Europe has been working in close

Kay Bärenfänger, president of GATE, said about the uncertainty the international airport industry is currently facing: “In times like these, we are looking out to our partners and members, to support each other during what we see as unprecedented circumstances.
