The second wave of coronavirus hits India severely, creating new unfortunate records of daily infected cases and deaths. The authorities responded to the situation with localised lockdowns, slowing entire economic activities.
Since the complete business ecosystem got disordered due to the pandemic, Koelnmesse India has made a strategic decision to postpone ANUTEC – International FoodTec India and its co-located events from 15-17 September to 2-4 December 2021 at the same venue, i.e. IECC, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
While the Government has announced phase-wise unlocking in many parts of the country, gaining business back in full swing will still take some time. In addition, the expedited vaccination drive is also helping in getting the maximum population a safe shield. Considering these optimistic scenarios, the business community is gearing up for new business and will require some time to prepare. Hence, Koelnmesse India, in agreement with industry stake holders, decided to delay the exhibition by more than two months and is convinced, that this decision is in the interest of exhibitors, visitors and partners.
FoodTec trade fairs drive over 450 exhibitors from India and abroad, which are expected to attend the next edition of ANUTEC – International FoodTec India and its co-located trade fairs.
