Intermodellbau 2022 cancelled

  • Created by Holger Späing

Due to a lack of planning and continuing uncertainties, Intermodellbau 2022 in Dortmund has been cancelled without replacement. A new date has been set for 2023.

On 28 February 2022 Messe Dortmund announced that Intermodellbau would be cancelled this year without replacement. The reason given for this was the remaining planning uncertainties despite the prospect of opening the fair and good advance ticket sales, as some of the exhibitors' staff are also repeatedly absent and can thus hardly be replaced. This has led to a lack of willingness to participate. Sabine Loos, Managing Director of Messe Dortmund, is quoted as saying: "Despite the prospects of opening and a strong core of exhibitors and partners who wanted to go this way together with us, an Intermodellbau in the format, quality and size that all participants know, love and desire would unfortunately not have been feasible this year."

The next edition of the world's largest exhibition for model building and model sports will therefore not take place until 20-23 April 2023 at Messe Dortmund.
