IAAPA has announced the cancellation of its EMEA Trade Summit next month.
In a statement released today (7 January) Jakob Wahl, executive director and vice president, IAAPA EMEA said: “IAAPA’s priority remains supporting our members in their efforts to reopen their facilities in spring. After careful review, and with significant input from members, exhibitors, and our team, we decided against coming together in February for IAAPA EMEA Trade Summit, which was scheduled for 02 – 04 Feb. at Europa-Park, Germany. We are disappointed to have made this decision to cancel but now is not the time.”
Thanking the industry for its feedback and support, Wahl said IAAPA would continue to develop this event format further to “bring it to life in the future”. He added that the association is moving forward with plans to host IAAPA EMEA Spring Summit to be held on 01- 03 June in Belgium. “We will provide updated information in the coming weeks. We also look forward to hosting IAAPA Expo Europe in Barcelona, Spain, this September,” said Wahl.
