LEARNTEC 2021 will not take place
Second edition of the online format LEARNTEC xChange planned from 22 to 24 June 2021
LEARNTEC - Europe's largest event for digital education at school, university and work - cannot take place this year. Due to the lack of an opening perspective for the trade fair and event sector and the associated lack of planning security, Messe Karlsruhe and its trade fair advisory board have decided to cancel LEARNTEC 2021. Instead, there will be a second extended edition of the online format LEARNTEC xChange on the originally planned event date (22 to 24 June 2021), as a platform for networking and exchange for the education industry.
Managing Director Britta Wirtz explains the decision: "Despite permanently further developed corona protection concepts that are adaptable to the current situation, there are - even after the german federal-state conference on 3 March - still no sufficiently concrete opening perspectives for the industry that now offer our customers, partners and colleagues the required planning security for June 2021, which is why we have decided in a unanimous vote with our trade fair advisory board to cancel LEARNTEC 2021 on site." The next LEARNTEC at Messe Karlsruhe will now take place from 01 to 03 February 2022 - the traditional date.
