it-sa 2021

Next it-sa in Nuremberg in 2021, it-sa 365 launches in 2020 as a digital dialogue platform!

Looking to the future together

Following intensive consultation with the it-sa advisory committee, exhibitors and trade visitors, NürnbergMesse has decided that it-sa will be suspended this year due to the drastically changed conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of you have been wondering how compliance with social distancing rules and other regulations would have affected it-sa, given its focus on providing in-depth advice and explanations about sensitive products.

We are well aware that loyal customers like you are directly affected by this uncertain situation. Official orders curtailing business activity and international travel restrictions are making it difficult for you to plan and prepare your participation in the event. What we all need to do now is focus on dealing with the economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. In 2021, when the economic climate is stronger, it-sa can once again live up to the expectations you rightly have of it as your “home of IT security”.

We are sure that in the wake of the crisis the need for personal exchanges and the latest technical information will be greater than ever. So it-sa will also provide direction to the IT security sector in the future. As the leading dialogue platform for IT security, it continues to be a key factor in the success of your business.

Meanwhile, we are working very hard on developing a digital platform as an extension to it-sa in Nuremberg. From 6 October 2020, it-sa 365 will be putting content planned for the trade fair online and will connect IT security providers with experts and decision-makers. The platform will focus on interactive dialogue formats, product information and contributions by IT security vendors as well as news from the world of IT security.

So please continue to save the date that had been planned for this year’s trade fair, because
it-sa 365 will launch on 6 October!

Team der it-sa in Nürnberg
Statement von Frank Venjakob, Veranstaltungsleitung it-sa

"The fact that digitalisation is the backbone of the economy and society is currently being demonstrated very convincingly: Within a very short period, remote working, digital communication and online commerce have become indispensable. In this context, the IT security industry provides support through its own initiatives and helps protect businesses from hackers. Ultimately, the rapid changes could even offer businesses an opportunity, provided that IT security is dealt with at board level. It-sa 2020 provides a forum for personal encounters. After all, buying IT security is about trust between user and vendor, from one person to another!"

Frank Venjakob, Executive Director it-sa

In the future it is still important to come together to achieve more.

Current events are creating unprecedented challenges for us all.
The whole world is going through a turbulent period, with dynamics no-one can calculate. COVID-19 is spreading around the world, and we are all being called on to avoid all social contact as much as possible. Health as our highest good is endangered as rarely before and must therefore be protected.

Take care of yourself and stay healthy!


We are already looking forward to our reunion in 2021! After all, we are absolutely convinced that it will remain vital in future for people to gather, meet and interact, so they can achieve more in combination.
