International Trade Fair for Retail Promotions and Imports
Welcome back in March 2022: relaunch of the IAW Trade Fair in Cologne planned for autumn
Dear exhibitors and visitors, dear IAW friends,
During the last weeks we have checked all options regarding the restart of the IAW Trade Fair within the first half of the year. Unfortunately, government restrictions, quarantine measures and travel warnings at present do not (yet) permit the organization of events of this size and international character.
We do now concentrate on bringing back the IAW as the major event for the retail trade in September 2022. This is also to make sure that we all have more reliability in planning ahead and hopefully the vaccine campaign and test capacities in many countries will catch up by then. However, first of all we need some political decisions from the German goverment to make way for safe opening strategies of all business segments. Please be assured that we will do all we can, to make this happen and get back to you with the latest status hopefully by the end of April at the
