inter airport Europe 2021 is scheduled to take place Nov. 9-12 at the Munich Trade Fair Center in Germany.
Scheduling complications as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic saw the event postponed from its traditional October timeframe to mid-November and then moved up to its current dates.
“Following the consideration of feedback we have received from all stakeholders after the postponement in April, we have been able to secure the earliest slot to hold inter airport Europe in November 2021 and are pleased to announce this new date,” Nicola Hamann, managing director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions, said in a release earlier this year. “The November slot is not an ideal solution for us; however, one week ahead of the previous announcement fits a lot better into the overall event schedule. All outdoor exhibitors who have concerns over the weather in November will be able to present their equipment indoors in 2021.”
“The coming show certainly reflects the current market situation, including budget and travel restrictions for some of our regular exhibitors and visitors,” Olaf Freier, portfolio director of inter airport Europe, said in a press release this summer. “However, the industry is facing a major turning point and the future requires different, new solutions. With inter airport Europe this year, our aim is to drive tomorrow’s needs and required solutions by providing relevant content and business opportunities through our long-term experience and relationship with the airport community.”
Event organizers also staged a digital component to the show in April, dubbed inter airport Connect, which allowed exhibitors and attendees to connect virtually. Now as the in-person portion of the 23rd edition of inter airport Europe approaches, take a look at a sampling of the products that will be on display.

With each bag stored in an individual tote, BEUMER's CrisBag system keeps 100-percent tracking of bags inside the CrisStore system. Tracking also provides operators with real-time inventory, which allows operators to decide the most efficient time to retrieve bags for make-up. The BHS control alerts the operator when there are enough bags in storage to produce an efficient make-up process for a flight, after which the operator releases the bags for efficient speed loading of trolleys or ULDs.
