Organiser DLG is postponing EuroTier, which was scheduled to take place at the trade fair grounds in Hanover from 17 to 20 November 2020. In view of the continuing uncertainty surrounding the overall international situation in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, DLG cannot foresee that it will be possible to conduct EuroTier as a leading international trade fair in a form that is appropriate for exhibitors and visitors this year.
The new dates are 9th to 12th February 2021
UK Sire Services will be a part of the British Stand at Eurotier on the new dates in February 2021 and look forward to seeing our many international friends on the stand. This important international event will act as the major re-launch of the UK’s livestock capability in the wake of Covid-19. Its timing is also crucial with the Brexit transition period due to end on 31st December 2020 as Great Britain leaves the customs union and single market.
The decision to postpone EuroTier was taken in close coordination with the expert advisory board and in the interest of exhibitors and visitors. Its international nature – in terms of both exhibitors and visitors – is precisely what makes the event the global meeting point for experts and decision-makers. The trade fair is the meeting place for the entire industry; the primary objective of all participants is personal dialogue.
DLG is convinced that postponing EuroTier until 9th to 12th February 2021 will not only ensure that it lives up to their reputation as a leading international trade fair but will also provide maximum opportunity for planning and preparation for exhibitors and visitors.
EuroTier will return to the trade fair grounds in Hanover in 2021 and will offer visitors an extensive exhibition with accompanying technical programme concerning the latest topics surrounding international animal production.
