ARC Forum, Hannover Messe Postponed

Jan. 19, 2022
Two major trade events have been delayed due to COVID concerns.

After cancellations of live events in 2021, two of the most prominent global trade events have been postponed until late May and early June. Show officials said the postponements were made to get past the current COVID restrictions.

Officials for ARC Advisory Group and Hannover Messe announced this week that their events have been delayed in 2022. ARC Advisory Group has postponed its 2022 Industry Forum to June 6-9 at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld in Orlando. Hannover Messe will be a four-day event in 2022, scheduled for May 30 to June 2 in Hannover, Germany.

The ARC event was originally scheduled for Feb. 14-17 at the same location, but the event was delayed “to ensure the safety of our customers, partners, and employees,” ARC officials said in a press release.

One of the top mid-winter gatherings of process industry leaders, the ARC Industry Forum consistently attracts experts from both the operations and supplier side of the business. It also includes the industry insights from ARC Advisory Group’s own stable of industry analysts.

Machine Design and Power & Motion are two of the media sponsors for the ARC Industry Forum.

“We believe that the COVID situation will be much improved in June for us to have a more meaningful learning and networking experience,” ARC officials said in the press release. “Those of you who have already registered for the Forum, your registration will be valid for the June Forum, and you do not need to register again.”

The ARC Industry Forum’s online event also has been postponed until June 20-23.

Officials at Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial trade show, had a similar message in postponing the event from April 25-29 until later in the year. “The longing to finally meet again in person is great. Unfortunately, however, the pandemic keeps the world in suspense continuously,” show officials said in a press release. “Experience shows that summer is best for face-to-face events, so the new date offers all participants the greatest possible safety and planning security.”
