In view of the Corona virus pandemic and the prohibitions on events and travel restrictions associated with it, Messe Frankfurt has decided, jointly with its partners – ZVEI and ZVEH – and with the Trade Fair Advisory Council, to defer the eleventh Light + Building and to hold it, in accordance with its normal sequence, from March 13 to 18, 2022.

Light + Building 2020, originally scheduled for March had originally been postponed to September/October 2020. However, 10 weeks after the initial postponement, in view of the joint decision by the Federal German Government and German States that major events cannot be held in Germany until at least the end of August, no event could be guaranteed.

“Light + Building is of quite particular importance for companies engaged in lighting and building services technology – it is here that industries with the latest technologies look far into the future. However much we regret the cancellation, we are also in favour of it. Given the manifold uncertainties and challenges, it was right to make this decision now, jointly and in a dialogue between partners,” said ZVEI president Michael Ziesemer.
