Intermat Paris Cancels 2021 Show; Looks Ahead to 2024
With the coronavirus pandemic likely to persist well into 2021, organizers of the triannual INTERMAT Paris construction equipment exposition have elected to cancel this year’s show, and instead focus returning the event as scheduled in 2024.
Calling the move a “difficult decision” made following consultations with industry professionals and exhibitors, INTERMAT organizers nevertheless cited lingering uncertainties about the local and global public health environment in the coming months as being unconducive to holding the show in full confidence as planned April 19-24.
“While many French and foreign exhibitors…had already confirmed their participation at the 2021 show, the constraints in April remained too disadvantageous to allow the show’s organization proceed smoothly,” the organizers added in a statement. Though exact dates for INTERMAT Paris 2024 have not been set, organizers promise that an event with “its ambition as strong as ever, to represent an international and forward-looking showcase for innovation to conquer the construction markets of the future.”
The absence of INTERMAT Paris makes Bauma 2022 (April 4-10) in Munich the next major international construction equipment exhibition. In the U.S., the rescheduled World of Concrete remains on track for June 8-10.
