Well, after The Photography Show and NAB, it was pretty obvious that Photokina was going to meet the same fate soon enough. Despite all three initially saying that they were going ahead one day shy of a month ago, and Photokina just a couple of weeks ago saying they see no reason to shut down, all three are now cancelled. Ok, technically TPS is postponed, but we’ll see.
Photokina organisers, Koelnmesse, issued a statement announcing the cancellation of the show, with the next event to be held in 2022 (not 2021). So, it seems like their new annual schedule (first announced in 2017) is being delayed yet again.
