domotexHanover, Germany—Domotex will not take place in January 2022, according to Deutsche Messe AG, organizers of the show.

“We have been fighting for Domotex together with the exhibiting companies until the very end, and have been in daily communication with the industry for months,” said Sonia Wedell-Castellano, global director Domotex, Deutsche Messe AG. “Domotex is particularly affected by the impact of the pandemic, as the vast majority of Domotex exhibitors and attendees come from abroad. However, given the current pandemic situation, international business travel is not expected to recover in the short term.”

Just over a month ago, organizers said they wanted to stage Domotex in the southern part of the Hannover exhibition grounds in a compact format as a “Re-Start” event in three halls, thus giving the industry a chance to meet physically after almost two years of pandemic. “What was considered a realistic and promising Re-Start scenario a month ago, and was also well received by the market, has proven to be no longer feasible in recent days,” Wedell-Castellano said.

Show organizers said they are looking into a Domotex date later in the 2022 calendar year.
