The 2020 edition of the Breakbulk Europe exhibition and conference has been cancelled.

The event, which had been rescheduled from May to September 29 to October 1, 2020 at Messe Bremen in Germany, will now take place next year from May 18-20, 2021.

Current government regulations in Germany prohibit all events and exhibitions with 1,000 or more participants until October 31, 2020, making it impossible to deliver the event.

The organiser said that it has been monitoring the situation in Bremen carefully, in consultation with the venue, local authorities and industry bodies.
