In response to the escalating pandemic and the current challenges facing German and European retailers, Tendence 2020 has been cancelled.

“We’ve been fighting hard, leaving no stone unturned, to see whether we might hold Tendence here in Frankfurt at the end of June, despite the current very tense situation," says Stephan Kurzawski, senior vice-president of show organiser Messe Frankfurt. "However, as the coronavirus situation has now taken another turn for the worse, we regret that have no choice but to cancel the event. We would be very pleased to welcome the industry here in Frankfurt again in 2021.”

Messe Frankfurt suggests that its Nordstil show, taking place in Hamburg from 25-27th July 2020, will be Germany's first platform for 2021 spring and summer collections – alongside Messe Frankfurt's online order and marketing platform, Nextrade.
