Leading German-based event organizers, Messe Stuttgart, has announced its decision to postpone LASYS 2020, the International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing. The announcement has been made in lieu of the increasing prevalence of the novel corona virus (COVID-19) and the enactment of the related legal ordinance on infection protection measures (Corona Ordinance) by the Baden-Württemberg State Government.
By agreement with the event partners and the LASYS Trade Fair Advisory Committee, LASYS will now be held from 21 to 23 June 2022.
As stated by Thomas Walter, Vice President Industry & Technology and a member of the Board of Management of Messe Stuttgart, the event organizers attach maximum priority to the health of exhibitors, visitors, supporters and employees of the trade fair. They thus want to offer exhibitors, project partners and visitors, planning security, and also use alternative formats to bridge the waiting time up to the next trade fair date in 2022. The organizing committee is planning to launch two new "LASYS meets" events based on the topics - "Laser Material Processing in and for Medical Technology" and "Laser System Solutions and Applications for Tool, Pattern and Mould Making".
The events will take place during T4M – Technology for Medical Devices - Trade Fair for Medical Technology (4 to 6 May 2021), and during Moulding Expo - International Trade Fair for Tool, Pattern and Mould Making (8 to 11 June 2021).
LASYS is the only international trade fair which consistently focuses on system solutions for laser material processing. Since the start of the trade fair in 2008, it has become successfully established as a user platform for laser system solutions and applications. The event covers all industries and materials, and is primarily aimed at decision-makers from international industry.
