Rapid.Tech 3D will not take place from 5 to 7 May 2020

The Rapid. Tech 3D – the oldest German congress fair for additive technologies, is postponed to May 2021. The current development around Covid-19 makes a realization of the Rapid.Tech 3D at the originally planned time from 5 – 7 May 2020 impossible.

“Unfortunately, due to the current development of the Corona pandemic, we have to postpone Rapid.Tech 3D 2020 to 4 – 6 May 2021”, said Michael Kynast, CEO of Messe Erfurt GmbH and Prof. Dr. Gerd Witt, Chairman of the Rapid.Tech 3D advisory board.

“We did not make this decision easy for ourselves and discussed it in detail with the members of our expert advisory board and partners from the industry in advance. For us, the safety and health of all exhibitors, visitors, partners and employees has top priority. The moving of Rapid.Tech 3D is difficult for us, but it is the most responsible consequence of the current situation,”; Kynast and Witt continued.
The decision to postpone was taken by those responsible at this stage to avoid a “last minute” cancellation.

In order to be able to work with the Rapid.Tech 3D to remain present in the event market in 2020, the trade fair advisory board has recommended planning a 1.5-day “Rapid. Tech 3D – Congress 2020” with top-class speakers in early September 2020.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our warm thanks for all your support with the preparations for this year’s Rapid.Tech 3D and your commitment to the event. We look forward to continuing our successful and trusting collaboration.

The next Rapid. Tech 3D will take place from 4 to 6 May 2021!
