This year's edition of the annual event had originally been scheduled to take place from May 26-29 in Moscow but was postponed earlier this week.
In a statement, event organiser Messe München said that the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has strongly impacted developments in Russia.
It added that, following the directives of the Government of the city and region of Moscow to prevent and control the virus from spreading, Messe München was compelled to postpone bauma CTT Russia.
The measures taken by the Moscow City Government against the spread of coronavirus will apply for the time being until 10 April. In view of this development, "the postponement is the logical consequence," said Stefan Rummel, MD of Messe München. "We are thus giving our customers, exhibitors, visitors and partners of bauma CTT RUSSIA planning security. Their health is our top priority. We are now looking ahead confidently and working with our national and international partners from the construction industry to organize a successful bauma CTT RUSSIA 2020 in September.”
Sergey Alexandrov, MD of Messe München Rus, said: “We are taking the spread of the coronavirus very seriously and have been monitoring the local situation closely. Based on current developments, we are confident that by setting the new date we will create good conditions for staging bauma CTT RUSSIA.”
Visitors can still register online for bauma CTT RUSSIA. Already purchased tickets remain valid.
