HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT and mitteldeutsche handwerksmesse Cancelled in February 2022 – New Date: 11 to 19 February 2023

Owing to the pandemic situation, Leipziger Messe is once again cancelling the HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT and mitteldeutsche handwerksmesse trade fair combination that was planned from 19 to 27 February 2022. Both fairs will next be held at the Leipzig Exhibition Centre from 11 to 19 February 2023.

"We have taken this decision with a heavy heart, as there had been an excellent number of registrations. We had hoped until the last minute that the trade fair duo would be able to take place as planned. However the pandemic does not currently allow us to make any reliable plans for the trade fair combination in February," says Martin Buhl-Wagner, managing director of Leipziger Messe. "We had to make a decision now. Our priority is ensuring that exhibitors can make firm plans and avoid economic losses. Entry to the country also remains uncertain for many participants from abroad."

In 2020 the trade fair duo welcomed 1,100 exhibitors from 26 countries and more than 172,000 visitors. The next HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT and mitteldeutsche handwerksmesse will take place from 11 to 19 February 2023.
