ISU 2020

topic: "Trade Fair = Fair Trade? Exhibition Formats in the Age of Sustainability"

date: 17.06.2020-19.06.2020
save the date!

Unfortunately, the International Summer University 2020 (ISU) – originally from 17 to 19 June 2020 – must be cancelled in light of the current situation. For us, the health of all trade fair participants is paramount. The management team at Koelnmesse has decided not to hold any Koelnmesse events on the part of Koelnmesse till the end of June 2020. Our decision is supported by the crisis management team of the City of Cologne, which recommended cancelling trade fairs during this period. Thus, Koelnmesse and the Institute of Trade Fair Management at the University of Cologne as well as the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI) have decided not to carry out this year’s ISU.

ISU targets high potentials at enterprises with international operations in the trade fair and exhibition sector. A total of 500 trade fair professionals from 45 different countries took part in the past 11 events. Here, industry experts from all over the world form a learning community in which to discuss topics crucial to the success of the industry.

We look forward to the next event in 2021!

Die International Summer University 2020 (ISU) - ursprünglich vom 17. bis 19.06.2020 - muss aufgrund der aktuellen Situation leider abgesagt werden. Für uns steht die Gesundheit aller Messeteilnehmer an erster Stelle. Die Koelnmesse-Geschäftsführung hat entschieden, bis Ende Juni 2020 keine Eigenveranstaltungen in Köln durchzuführen. Diese Entscheidung wird vom Krisenstab der Stadt Köln unterstützt, der empfohlen hat, Messen in diesem Zeitraum abzusagen. Vor diesem Hintergrund hat die Koelnmesse zusammen mit der UFI und dem Institut für Messewirtschaft der Universität zu Köln auch entschieden, die ISU in diesem Jahr nicht durchzuführen.

 

Die ISU richtet sich an High Potentials international agierender Unternehmen in der Messe- und Ausstellungsbranche. An den vergangenen elf Veranstaltungen haben insgesamt 500 Messeprofis aus 45 verschiedenen Ländern teilgenommen. Branchenexperten aus der ganzen Welt bilden hier eine Lerngemeinschaft, um die Themen zu diskutieren, die für den Erfolg der Branche entscheidend sind. Wir freuen uns auf die nächste Veranstaltung in 2021!
