ITAS and LOCATIONS PLUS to set up their tent in 2023

Close cooperation between Messe Stuttgart and the industry | International Tents and Structures and LOCATIONS PLUS with a new date

Messe Stuttgart is expanding its portfolio by adding International Tents and Structures, a trade fair for tents and flexible structures. The concept of the new trade fair was developed through close cooperation with exhibitors and the Industrial Association for Technical Textiles, Roller Shutters and Sun Protection (ITRS). International Tents and Structures will close a gap in the trade fair scene and provide the industry with a new platform. LOCATIONS PLUS, which will extend the concept to include the topics of trade fair construction, technology and equipment, will also be staged concurrently in 2023.

"The challenges have changed substantially from the initial idea for this new trade fair combination right up to the present day, and the new political and economic conditions were not foreseeable in this form," said Guido von Vacano, Executive Vice President of Messe Stuttgart. He emphasised the following in particular: "The lack of materials, the interruption in supply chains and the shortage of skilled workers are already a permanent problem in many industries – and unfortunately in these industries too. This makes it impossible for the participants to present their complete portfolio at a trade fair and find the necessary manpower for this purpose." After intensive discussions with the industry, the date for this première is unsuitable. Messe Stuttgart therefore decided to postpone International Tents and Structures and LOCATIONS PLUS to 2023.
