When will SurfaceTechnology GERMANY 2020 take place?
SurfaceTechnology GERMANY 2020 will take place from 27 to 29 October 2020 in parallel to parts2clean.
Why is SurfaceTechnology GERMANY being postponed at short notice?
A postponement of SurfaceTechnology GERMANY is unavoidable due to the decree situation in Baden-Württemberg. The Ministry of Social Affairs of Baden-Württemberg sent the health authorities an indefinite decree stating that law enforcement agencies cancel all events with more than 1,000 participants. For a trade fair, however, preparation and planning reliability are necessary.
What safety precautions will be taken at the next events?
Deutsche Messe AG is in constant contact with the relevant health authorities. Whether, and if so, which security precautions are necessary for the trade show in October, will be decided at the appropriate time together with the health authorities. At present, we are assuming that it will be possible to hold the trade fair in October without any restrictions.
I just read that the fair is being postponed, what's going to happen now?
First of all, all those involved will be informed, your usual contacts will be available to answer any questions you may have and will be happy to assist you in postponing your participation in the fair.
As a result of the postponement to October, and parallel to parts2clean, a complete reorganisation of Halls 5 and 7 (SurfaceTechnology GERMANY), as well as Halls 7 and 9 (parts2clean), is necessary. For the purpose of a relocation you will be contacted promptly and proactively by your usual contact persons.
Sponsorship opportunities and the supporting program will take place as far as possible as planned, but in October.
Will my contract at SurfaceTechnology GERMANY continue for the new date?
In accordance with III. clause 8.2.2 sentence 1 of the Conditions of Participation SurfaceTechnology GERMANY 2020 ("TNB"), which you accepted whilst signing the contract, the existing contract with you will remain in force for the new event period unless you object in writing to Deutsche Messe immediately, but no later than two weeks after you received the notification of the rescheduling of the event.
Only in the event of your objection will we charge you a fee in accordance with III. item 8.2.2 sentence 2 Subsection 2 of the General Terms and Conditions. You will then receive a new invoice for this cost amount. At the same time, any invoice already issued for the participation fee for the original event date will be cancelled. You will then receive a payment of the difference.
Momentarily payment terms expire, will they be postponed or do we have to pay now?
Please assume that the payment terms originally stated remain valid and plan your payments accordingly.
Will the price of the stand space or services change for the new date?
As things stand today, the price of the stand space or services you have already booked will not change.
Will Deutsche Messe AG reimburse us for costs for services booked with third parties (e.g. catering, travel/accommodation etc.)
No, services ordered from third parties are based exclusively on the relationship between the parties who have concluded the contract. Deutsche Messe will not reimburse any costs in this respect.
