SMM announced the new dates for International Maritime Trade Fair
In response to the coronavirus pandemic and its global effects on major events and international travel, SMM, the largest international maritime trade fair, was postponed to 2–5 February 2021.
“The continued highly dynamic development of COVID-19 and the resulting ban on major events have left us no other choice but to postpone SMM to next year. Finding a suitable new timeframe for SMM was not an easy task for us, and we are happy we have been able to do so,” said Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of Hamburg Messe und Congress.
Hamburg Messe und Congress and its partners and other exhibitor members have decided on the new dates, from 2 to 5 February 2021, following extensive consultations with the exhibitor advisory board. That means SMM will be the first international maritime industry conference of the new year.
