SHK ESSEN 2022 is postponed to September

New date in late summer meets with approval in the industry

The upcoming SHK ESSEN will be postponed to September 6-9, 2022. Originally, the trade fair was to herald the return of the industry to trade fair normality as early as March. Against the background of the currently very dynamic pandemic, Messe Essen and the SHK NRW trade association as the conceptual sponsor have now decided on a new date in late summer.

"At the moment, we are weighing up for each individual event whether we will stick to holding it next spring. Many factors play a role in this. What works for one industry does not necessarily work for others. In the case of SHK ESSEN, it became clear after discussions with partners and major exhibitors that we would have only partially met the high demands placed on this trade fair in March. We are therefore all the more confident that SHK ESSEN can be successfully held again in September," explains Oliver P. Kuhrt, Managing Director of Messe Essen. "Although we very much regret the postponement, we consider the new date in late summer to be the best possible solution. I am sure that the skilled trades will be united in this. The desire for presence fairs is unbrokenly high", explains Hans-Peter Sproten, General Manager in the SHK NRW trade association.
