Having received such positive feedback from our stand at Blechexpo in November 2019, we had planned to exhibit at another trade fair this year.
“Tube” was originally scheduled to take place in March 2020 at the Messe Düsseldorf venue. Once again, we were planning to showcase our company at the joint stand hosted by the German Steel Trade Association (BDS), which was designed as a “meeting point” for the steel industry. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the “world’s most important trade fair for the tube and tube processing industry” was first postponed until 07.12. to 11.12.2020, then cancelled altogether.
However, the BDS had already pre-empted the situation and had decided, in consultation with all co-exhibitors, not to participate in the trade fair. The decision was made primarily to protect employees, but also for economic reasons. The trade fair should be back up and running again in 2022.
