Trade fairs and events postponed or cancelled due to the global Coronavirus emergency

Good morning, everyone, and a good start to the week. Usually we are happy to introduce you during the year to the trade fairs and events to which we attend and which obviously concern our sectors of activity, the machine tools sector and the sector of the packaging machines.

Today, however, we have decided to write a completely different kind of article as many trade fairs planned in Europe in the coming months have been postponed or even cancelled due to the Coronavirus emergency that is affecting the whole world. We therefore thought it would be useful for our readers and customers to have a list of all the fairs with the new scheduled dates.
