Messe Cancels 4 Frankfurt Shows; Look for Light + Building Announcement Next Week

Messe Frankfurt has cancelled trade fairs Christmasworld, Paperworld, Creativeworld and Ambiente.  Ambiente typically would have 4500 exhibitors compared to about 2700 for Light + Building.  I find it interesting that the shows were cancelled and not postponed, but in a press release, Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt stated, “Since the trend-oriented order cycles of the international consumer goods industry require an annual event at the beginning of the year, a shift to the second half of the year would not meet the needs of the exhibiting companies and visitors.”

Personally I am happy that they were not moved to the Fall as it frees up more dates for Light + Building.  Look for an announcement next week on L+B.
