FAQS CONCERNING THE CANCELLATION OF AGRITECHNICA 2022

(Last updated: 13 December 2021)

In view of the current national and global developments in the coronavirus pandemic, the sharp rise in the number of infections in numerous countries and the related travel limitations, DLG, as the organiser, and the trade fair's exhibitor advisory board have jointly come to the conclusion that the framework conditions for successfully conducting the world's leading trade fair for agricultural machinery are no longer ensured. AGRITECHNICA will next take place from 12 to 18 November 2023 in Hanover.

AGRITECHNICA 2022 is being cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This is regulated in section 10.1.1. a) of the GTCs.

DLG Service GmbH shall be entitled to cancel the exhibition [in the event that] a) a sovereign measure (…) exists or the execution of the event is urgently advised against, regardless of whether such sovereign measure is addressed directly to DLG Service GmbH or to the general public. This also includes all sovereign measures in connection with the corona virus SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19.

The legal ramification in 10.2.1. of the GTCs is derived from this:

In the event of a complete cancellation prior to the start of the event, the Exhibitor shall remain liable for payment of a contribution to cover the costs incurred by DLG Service GmbH to fulfil the contract and to prepare and stage the event or to provide services already ordered by the Exhibitor until the day of cancellation by DLG Service GmbH (so called "advance costs"). These advance costs shall amount to at least 25 % of the Exhibitor's fee (…)

In consultation with the exhibitor advisory board, DLG will only invoice the exhibitor for 15% of the up-front costs instead of the 25%. The costs incurred by the exhibitors will therefore also be taken into consideration in this way.

These costs cannot be offset against the next event.

The registration fee (EUR 480) and booked media packages (EUR 690 and upgrades) will not be reimbursed.

You will receive a cancellation invoice for your stand fee, your AUMA contribution and your advance payment for services. The reverse transfers will take place within the next few weeks.

In order to receive the return transfer, please send an email to the following address:: buchhaltung-dsg@dlg.org

No, because the trade fair had not yet been cancelled at the time of your cancellation and a valid contract existed.

The majority of the booked service orders will be cancelled automatically.
The exception to this is the media package upgrades, as the additional AGRITECHNICA digital service that began in November 2021 will be available as scheduled on the 'DLG Connect' digital platform (www.dlg-connect.com) until the end of March 2022. Visitors to the platform will still have the opportunity to find out about the latest products and information from the agricultural machinery manufacturers, to take part in digital events and to network with companies and farmers.

If you have booked services that have already been invoiced and are being provided by an external service partner, please contact the corresponding service partner that is named on the invoice.

Advance costs are costs that DLG has incurred, particularly in preparing for the trade fair. Amongst others, these include personnel costs for layout planning, the production of advertising or for commissioning service partners and service providers, for instance.
