In the context of the current situation and with the current travel restrictions impacting a number of exhibitors, sponsors and speakers, organiser RX (Reed Exhibitions) have made the difficult but appropriate decision to postpone ALUMINIUM 2021 to next year. ALUMINIUM trade fair has been replaced with a congress: The ALUMINIUM Business Summit which will take place in Düsseldorf from 28 to 29 September.

It should have been the long-awaited restart event for the aluminium industry. But due to the after-effects of the Corona pandemic, the ALUMINIUM trade fair in Düsseldorf cannot take place as planned from 28 to 30 September 2021. Instead, organiser RX and the German Aluminium Association (Gesamtverband der Aluminiumindustrie, GDA), together with the CRU Group, are planning a two-day hybrid congress format. On 28 and 29 September the ALUMINIUM Business Summit will bring experts together live and digitally for an exchange of ideas. 

Trade fair back on track in 2022

"Despite numerous relaxations, many companies of the global aluminium industry still feel uncertainties and are affected by travel restrictions. An international event like ALUMINIUM is not feasible under these circumstances. The expectations that our exhibitors, visitors, partners and we have of a world-leading trade fair for this sector cannot be met this year under these conditions," said Barbara Leithner, COO of the organiser RX. "Together with our partners and the industry, we have therefore decided to launch the fair again in autumn 2022."
