Novoferm will not be exhibiting at BAU 2025. The company took this decision after careful consideration.

Novoferm cancels participation in BAU 2021 trade fair
Novoferm will not be exhibiting at BAU, the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, in Munich in January 2021. The company has made this decision based on the continuing development of the corona pandemic, which is currently so difficult to predict. “We have not taken this decision lightly, but developments in general and what the actual situation will be like in January are uncertain and cannot be foreseen. Having weighed up all of these factors, cancellation is the right step to take and gives

everyone involved planning security,” according to Rainer Schackmann, Chairman of the Management Board at Novoferm. As one of Europe’s leading system suppliers of doors, garage door solutions and loading systems, Novoferm is traditionally represented with one of the largest stands at BAU. Trade fair participation on this scale is associated with considerable costs while preparations require a lot of time. The Novoferm trade fair team has already been working for months this year on presenting product innovations and highlights to German and international visitors once again in 2021.
