Desma Schuhmaschinen, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of machines and systems for shoe manufacturing, has canceled the 2021 edition of its house fair exhibition scheduled in September because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Desma house fair is held every two years in autumn in the German company’s headquarters in Achim, near Bremen. The 2020 edition was canceled because of the pandemic and the company was hoping to organize the show in September. Desma said that it sincerely regrets the decison but the ”pandemic currently prevents any gathering of this kind. As we attach great importance to your safety, we have decided to postpone the Desma house fair until 2022.”

The company added that the outlook for 2021 is encouraging thanks to a recovery in the global economy, an increase in consumer spending and the vaccination campaigns underway.
