analytica 2020 Rescheduled as COVID-19 Spreads

March 6, 2020

The conference, which was originally scheduled for March 31–April 3, 2020 at the Messe München in Germany, will be rescheduled for Oct. 19–22, 2020 at the same location.

analytica, a trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis, and biotechnology, announced that the conference, which was originally scheduled for March 31–April 3, 2020 at the Messe München in Germany, will be rescheduled for Oct. 19–22, 2020 at the same location. The decision was made after consulting the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board, the Bavarian State Government, and exhibitor feedback regarding the increasing spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), an analytica press release said.

“Under the given circumstances, opening analytica in late March would not be justifiable towards our customers, in particular from a medical and economic perspective,” said Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, deputy chairman of the board of management of Messe München and responsible for analytica, in the press release. “Now we are looking forward with confidence to host a successful analytica 2020 jointly with the industry in the fall of this year.”

“Postponing it to the new date in fall is the measure necessary to offer manufacturers and visitors an optimal platform for their business, and to build on analytica’s previous success,” added Siegbert Holtermüller, chairman of the Exhibitors’ advisory board of analytica and head of Sales Europe Life Science of Olympus, in the press release.
