ANUTEC - International FoodTec India co-located with PackEx India, Food Logistics India, and ANUTEC - Ingredients India cancelled due to rising cases and venue unavailability

25 January 2021

Government has created a jumbo COVID ICU facility at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai which is the venue planned for the trade fair, and it is unclear whether the venue will be permitted for the scheduled date in February 2021.

India is witnessing a rapid second wave of the infection cases, and local Government has already issued a warning to re-impose the lockdown in Mumbai. Mumbai requires massive efforts to fight the coronavirus due to the dense population. Multiple jumbo COVID Facilities are created to treat a maximum number of patients possible. Bombay Exhibition Centre is one of them where the event was planned from February 3-5, 2021. Therefore, the organisers have made the difficult decision to cancel the exhibition. By doing so, Koelnmesse is keeping attendees safe, helping to flatten the curve, and affecting positive change. This is disappointing, yet needs to be appreciated that the steps are taken to help keep exhibitors, partners and attendees safe.

"This inevitable decision comes as a consequence of insurgent COVID-19 situation around us. However, with industry’s support we are confident to rise, reassemble and present the best B2B trade fair to the Indian food industry in September 2021" says Milind Dixit, Managing Director of Koelnmesse YA Tradefair Pvt Ltd.

The next ANUTEC - International FoodTec India, co-located with PackEx India, Food Logistics India, and ANUTEC Ingredients India will be held from 15-17 September 2021 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
