This year, as well, the Coronavirus pandemic is maintaining a firm grip on world events. Due to current developments regarding the spread of COVID-19, Messe Friedrichshafen has been forced to make a very difficult decision. The Ham Radio international amateur radio exhibition will not take place in the planned time frame of June 25-27, 2021, but instead will be held from June 24 to 26, 2022.
“It was not an easy decision for us; however, an exhibition like Ham Radio depends on a high level of international participation. Due to the current uncertainties in the travel sector, it is simply not feasible to hold it this year,” explained Klaus Wellmann, CEO of Messe Friedrichshafen, sadly. Project Manager Petra Rathgeber also expressed her great disappointment: “It is deeply regrettable that the event cannot take place as planned. We were so looking forward to our get-together with the industry.” Christian NetShelter, chairman of the German Amateur Radio Club e.V. (DARC), added: “We support the decision of Messe Friedrichshafen to cancel this year’s Ham Radio exhibition at this early date. Naturally, we are very disappointed that our meeting with friends in Friedrichshafen will not take place, after all. However, the online version of Ham Radio that is now planned to take place from June 25 to 27, 2021, is a consolation that we very much look forward to, as it will offer our members of ham-radio friends some interesting surprises.”
Exhibitors, visitors and participating partners are currently being notified about these changes.
