Breakbulk Europe 2020, the world’s largest event for the project cargo and breakbulk industry, has been cancelled, and will return to Messe Bremen, 18-20 May 2021.
We have been monitoring the situation in Bremen very carefully over the past months and have consulted with the venue, local authorities and industry bodies regarding options for the event this year. When the decision to postpone Breakbulk Europe was made in March, there was optimism that a September dateline would work. The Government regulations currently in place impose a ban on all events and exhibitions with 1,000 or more participants until 31 October 2020, which means that sadly, it is impossible to deliver the event for our attendees and customers of Breakbulk Europe this year.
Work is already well underway for Breakbulk Europe 2021 to provide the leading global platform for our community to connect, learn, network and – most importantly – do business. In the meantime, Breakbulk will continue to deliver its recently launched Breakbulk365 program that includes webinars and the BreakbulkONE Show to ensure the project cargo industry stays connected and updated on critical information during this period of constant change.
