interlift is postponed
There is a new date for the next interlift: Instead of October 2021 as planned, it will now take place next year.
There are increasing signs and reports worldwide of successful containment of the pandemic. Nevertheless, it is becoming apparent that there “will still be requirements for infection control at events in October 2021 and that travel restrictions will still apply at that time,” says a press release from interlift organizer AFAG.
Henning and Thilo Könicke, the two managing directors of AFAG, also assume this: "Our top priority is the success of our customers. For a leading international trade fair like interlift, it is essential that decision-makers from all over the world can travel to Augsburg unhindered. To what extent this will already be possible in October, no one can say with certainty today."
In close coordination with the professional sponsor VFA-Interlift e.V. and the trade fair advisory board, AFAG has decided to comply with the wishes of many exhibitors and has therefore postponed the interlift to a later date. The interlift will now take place from Tuesday, April 26 to Friday, April 29, 2022. The general conditions should have improved considerably by then and allow the event to be held successfully and safely for exhibitors and visitors.
Uncomplicated procedure for registered exhibitors
The almost 300 exhibitors of interlift who have registered so far will receive confirmation for the new date in April 2022 as soon as possible. Positioning will remain unchanged, as will other booked services. In 2023, interlift will return to its usual date in October. This has already been fixed: interlift 2023 will take place from Tuesday, 17 to Friday, 20 October.
