Essen Spiel 2020 Postponed until 2021
Faced with an unchanged dynamic situation and the resulting lack of planning security, the world's largest and most-visited public fair for board games SPIEL, which last year welcomed more than 200,000 visitors and 1,200 exhibitors from all over the world, will not take place this year and will be postponed until next year.
"We have observed the very dynamic national and international development with regard to Covid-19 very closely over the past weeks and months and have evaluated all possibilities for holding SPIEL '20", explains Dominique Metzler, Managing Director of the organizing Friedhelm Merz Verlag. "Unfortunately, this has led to the conclusion that we will not be able to hold SPIEL '20 at the planned date due to a lack of planning security. A solid and responsible fair preparation is not possible under the given circumstances. For this reason and after a long period of consideration, we have come to the result, which is certainly very painful for everyone, that we will have to postpone SPIEL by one year."
