FORST16-18 live with great regret.
The ongoing lockdown and the unpredictable development of the mutations significantly increases market uncertainty among exhibitors and visitors. “Based on the current situation, we have reassessed the feasibility of the event and unfortunately come to the conclusion that we cannot perform the FORST live with WILD & FISCH on their original date. Our customers, partners and employees trust us. They can also have this confidence in critical situations,” emphasizes Messe Managing Director Sandra Kircher. “We have made this decision with a heavy heart, but the current market uncertainty does not allow for an alternative valuation. Clarity and predictability are important goods for us,” says project manager Volker Matern, underlining the situation.
