LOPEC 2020 will not take place

March 06, 2020

Due to the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe and on the basis of the recommendations of the Bavarian State Government as well as of the responsible health authorities, Messe München feels compelled to cancel LOPEC 2020. This measure is taken in consultation with the industry association OE-A, co-organizer of LOPEC, and in responsibility for the health of exhibitors and visitors. The next LOPEC will be held on March 23 to 25, 2021.


Falk Senger, Managing Director of Messe München and the executive who oversees LOPEC, says: “In close consultation with our LOPEC partner OE-A and our exhibitors, it is unfortunately not possible for us to successfully hold the event this year for participants of the Exhibition and Conference. Canceling LOPEC 2020 was a painful decision. By making it, we have assumed our responsibility for the health of our exhibitors, conference speakers and visitors.” Klaus Hecker, Managing Director of the industry association OE-A, adds: “The OE-A supports this step. We will now put all our energy into organizing a successful LOPEC 2021.”

Key topic: printed electronics as part of electronica

As planned, the topic of printed electronics will play a key role during the world’s leading trade fair electronica from November 10 to 13, 2020. Interested individuals can participate as part of a joint LOPEC/OE-A booth and an expanded forum program.
