With the uncertainty regarding the length and breadth of the impact of COVID-19, ODVA has decided to postpone its participation in the Hannover Messe to 2021. ODVA will be limiting participating in and holding in-person events until later in the summer or once there is clear indication from health authorities that it is safe to gather. We look forward to exhibiting in Europe next at the SPS show in November 2020! In addition, we will be offering online events to take the place of onsite EtherNet/IP and CIP Safety trainings. We will notify members and vendors of any online events as well as post them to https://www.odva.org/Happenings/Events.

Since ODVA’s annual Hannover Messe Media Briefing is always a popular event, we will hold a special online press conference for the media on Monday 20 April at 9:30 am EDT / 15:30 CET. Members of the media will receive an invitation to this event in the coming weeks. Contact Steve Fales if you have any questions.
