Following in-depth discussions and in consultation with ABDA (Federal Union of German Associations of Pharmacists), DAV (German Association of Pharmacists), Messe Munich, and after numerous individual conversations with exhibitors, Avoxa Mediengruppe has decided to cancel expopharm 2020, which had been scheduled to be held in Munich from 7th to 10th October. At this time, as a result of the current situation, hosting an event on this scale would be associated with an unreasonable level of risk.
In order to minimise potential default risks and expenses and to ensure planning certainty, our priority is to make a timely and responsible decision. This decision is determined by factors which go far beyond the technical feasibility of the event.
The doubts many of you have expressed in numerous discussions over the past weeks and the concern expressed by ABDA and DAV with regard to pharmacists, who are key workers with a great deal of responsibility, being put at risk are key factors behind this decision.
In order to engage you in dialogue with your target group, we are planning several new formats, which will be launched in the next few weeks. We would like to invite you to participate in our call for ideas from June onwards.
The answers to the most pressing questions can be found in our FAQs.
The next expopharm event is scheduled to be held from 22nd to 25th September 2021 in Dusseldorf.
