Cleanzone paused in 2021
14 giugno 2021
Frankfurt am Main, 14 June 2021. Messe Frankfurt has decided to pause Cleanzone
for this year. The reasons for this are manifold: on the one hand, business in the
clean-room sector is booming due to the pandemic; on the other hand, full order
books are leading to capacity bottlenecks for potential exhibitors, which means that
numerous companies cannot manage a trade-fair presentation this year.
Messe Frankfurt has decided to pause Cleanzone this year. The international trade fair for
cleanroom and cleanliness technology, hygiene and contamination control was originally
scheduled to be held in Frankfurt am Main on 24 and 25 November 2021.
Kerstin Horaczek, Vice President Technology Shows of Messe Frankfurt, explains: “We
did not take the decision to postpone this year’s Cleanzone lightly, particularly in view of
the fact that we are planning a number of physical events – both Messe Frankfurt and
guest events – in the second half of the year. Nevertheless, the clean-room sector is
facing a great challenge at present: business in clean-room technology is booming.
Moreover, due to the pandemic, new fields of business, such as vaccine production, are
being added. In turn, however, this means that the companies’ order books are so full that
many of them do not have the spare capacity needed to organise a trade-fair
Although developments in the immunisation field have been extremely good, the
pandemic continues to cause uncertainty, in particular among many international visitors,
about attending trade fairs. Cleanzone is a special-interest event meaning that this
situation is likely to have a greater impact on visitor numbers than in the case of bigger
events. This has impacted negatively on the uncertainty of many participants from the
sector about taking part in Cleanzone 2021.
Messe Frankfurt will work closely together with the Cleanzone Strategy Commission and
evaluate the multifarious lessons learnt during the pandemic and employ them for future
editions of Cleanzone. The nine members of the Strategy Commission advise the fair and
exhibition company about general strategic questions relating to clean-room technology
and provide support for the orientation of the event’s content. Together with its partners
from the industry, Messe Frankfurt will push ahead with the development of Cleanzone.
