LASYS 2020, the International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing organised by Messe Stuttgart has been postponed to 2022 due to the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19). The original trade fair was set to take place on June 16–18, 2020, but will now be held from June 21–23, 2022.

The event is said to be the only international trade fair which consistently focuses on system solutions for laser material processing. Since the trade fair’s inauguration in 2008, it has become successfully established as a user platform for laser system solutions and applications. LASYS covers all industries and materials, and is primarily aimed at decision-makers from international industry.

Regarding the postponement, the organisers wrote in an official statement, “Messe Stuttgart is postponing LASYS, International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing. This is due to the increasing prevalence of the new coronavirus and the enactment of the related legal ordinance on infection protection measures (Corona Ordinance) by the Baden-Württemberg State Government. By agreement with the event partners and the LASYS Trade Fair Advisory Committee, LASYS will now be held from 21 to 23 June 2022.”

Thomas Walter, Vice President Industry & Technology and a member of the Board of Management of Messe Stuttgart, commented, “We attach maximum priority to the health of exhibitors, visitors, supporters and employees of the trade fair. We want to offer exhibitors, project partners and visitors planning security and use alternative formats to bridge the waiting time up to the next trade fair date in 2022. We are planning to launch two new ‘LASYS meets’ events on the following topics: ‘Laser material processing in and for medical technology’ and ‘Laser system solutions and applications for tool, pattern and mould making’”.
