Steel Products Manufacturers and Users to Meet at Metal-Expo’2020 in Moscow

Metal-Expo’2020, the 26th International Industrial Exhibition will be held on November 10-13, at VDNHa Fairground, Moscow, Russia.

The main business platform for steel producers will again bring together all the steel market participants providing them a perfect opportunity to establish live dialogue and hold fruitful discussions. After the lockdown and restrictive measures taken in the 1st half, 2020, real contacts and offline meetings become more precious and important to the steel business community.

This year the congress and exhibition industry suffered a lot due to COVID-19. Due to restrictive measures taken in spring, many exhibitions and conferences were cancelled or postponed to the next year. Recovery of the epidemiological situation made it possible to resume holding exhibitions in August-September 2020.  However, the majority of Moscow exhibition spaces will be occupied by makeshift hospitals until the end of 2020.

For many years Metal-Expo has been held in hall 75, VDNHa, which currently remains as one of the COVID-19 makeshift hospitals. Under present circumstances VDNHa Management offered Metal-Expo Organizers alternative venues to hold Metal-Expo’2020, the 26th International Industrial Exhibition. In 2020 Metal-Expo will be held in halls 55 and 57, VDNHa.

Due to shortage in exhibition spaces in halls 55 and 57, and following the requirements of ROSPOTREBNADZOR about preventive measures during mass exhibitions and congresses to reduce the risks of COVID-19 spreading in Moscow, the sizes of exhibition stands will be reduced. However, the sizes of outdoor spaces in front of the halls will not be limited. “Even under such constrained conditions, we will do our best to offer spaces to all who are more than eager to exhibit’, commented A. Romanov,  Co-Chairman of Metal-Expo Organizing Committee, RUMSS President.

Despite the difficulties, the forum will take place as planned on November 10-13 to become the main business platform where all the priority goals of the steel production and equipment manufacture will be discussed and mid and long-term strategies of the steel industry development will be worked out. .
