New date for LEARNTEC 2022

Messe Karlsruhe postpones LEARNTEC to 31 May to 2 June 2022

Due to the dynamic pandemic with the new virus variant Omikron and possible intensifications that could also affect the trade fair and congress industry, Messe Karlsruhe, together with exhibitors, advisory boards and partners, has decided to reschedule LEARNTEC - Europe's largest event for digital education in schools, universities and the workplace - with foresight. The trade fair and the accompanying convention will now take place from 31 May to 2 June 2022 at Messe Karlsruhe.

"Trade fairs like LEARNTEC thrive on personal exchange and networking. The last few months have shown that trade fairs with around 200,000 visitors in Karlsruhe alone are not pandemic drivers," explains Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe. "However, what was still considered realistic a month ago and was very well received by our community has now turned out to be increasingly uncertain due to the sharp rise in the number of cases in recent days, the new virus variant and the announcement of renewed lockdowns. We are now accommodating our industry's request for a postponement."

LEARNTEC was originally scheduled to take place at Messe Karlsruhe from 1 to 3 February 2022.
