PLMA cancels ‘World of Private Label’ trade fair

PLMA’s International Council has canceled this year’s edition of its ‘World of Private Label’ fair, which was scheduled for December 14-15 at the RAI Exhibition Center in Amsterdam.

The move follows increasingly stringent government mandates for rally and movement as the Netherlands and other European countries battle COVID-19.

Each year, PLMA attracts thousands of exhibitors and visitors to RAI and is the world’s largest trade fair of its kind.

The December event was actually the rescheduled May 2021 show, which also fell under COVID-19 restrictions.

By announcing the December cancellation, PLMA assured its members, retailers and other parts of the private label industry that it will provide them with plenty of networking and business transaction opportunities throughout 2022.

A virtual show, PLMA Global, will be presented in March, and the regular annual in-person event has been set for May 31 to June 1, 2022, at RAI in Amsterdam.

PLMA President Peggy Davies said, “PLMA remains committed to providing the global private label industry with networking opportunities as well as valuable sales and marketing solutions. “

The theme of this year’s show was “Back to Business”. The event was expected to feature more than 1,800 private label manufacturers from over 60 countries, including 45 national and regional pavilions from 30 countries.

The Dutch government has announced a partial lockdown, effective Saturday, November 13, ordering restaurants and shops to close early and barring spectators from major sporting events in a bid to contain a rapid rise in COVID-19 cases.
