In response to the coronavirus pandemic and its global impact on events and international travelling, Hamburg Messe und Congress has decided to postpone SMM to 2-5 February 2021. The international maritime trade fair was originally scheduled for 8-11 September 2020.

‘The continued highly dynamic development of Covid-19 and the resulting ban on major events have left us no other choice but to postpone SMM to next year,’ says Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of Hamburg Messe und Congress. ‘Finding a suitable new timeframe for SMM was not an easy task for us, and we are happy we have been able to do so.’

The venue of the event remains the Hamburg Messe in Hamburg, Germany.
