Despite trying to host Grindtec until the very end, the trade fair now has to be cancelled for 2022 following regulations.
Until the very end, the Grindec organiser AFAG Messen und Ausstellungen was in productive talks with the City of Augsburg in order to examine the effects of the new infection protection regulation on the implementation of the Grindtec 2020. In Bavaria, additional Corona restrictions will apply in future, starting from an incidence value of 100.
Among other things, events with more than 50 participants, and thus also trade fairs, will then be prohibited. This incidence value has already been significantly exceeded for days in the city of Augsburg. As a result, the Grindtec is not feasible according to the current status.
According to the technical assessment of the authorities, it is a mathematical impossibility that this situation will change by the time the Grindtec is held. The trade fair organiser AFAG has formally applied for an exemption permit for this special trade fair, and this application was rejected. For these reasons, it is now clear that the Grindtec 2020 is in fact impossible and prohibited, as the organisers explained.
