Fruit Logistica delayed until April 2022

The fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic is worsening the situation in many European countries. At the same time, the industry's wish to meet in person remains unwaveringly high. In light of these circumstances, Messe Berlin has decided to postpone Fruit Logistica to April 5-7, 2022 in Berlin.

 

"We are sticking firmly to our goal of meeting on-site again,” explains director Kai Mangelberger. “We expect that the situation will begin to alleviate in February due to the precautionary measures being taken. The new dates make it possible to hold a Fruit Logistica that will pay off for our international guests and presenters. We look forward to hosting people from around the world once more under better circumstances.”

 

Exhibitors are expected from more than 80 countries.
