Karl-Heinz Müeller, president of Bread & butter, finally changed his mind: After a lot of criticism from buyers and exhibitors regarding the time overlap of the next Bread & butter in Berlin (originally scheduled for February 3-5) with Who's Next in Paris (February 2-5) and CPD in Düsseldorf (February 5-7), Müeller has moved the dates. The show will now take place in Berlin February 2 to 4.

Müeller said, "Retailers and buyers are in the focus of our plans. They are the ones who make our events turn into a success. Therefore we changed the dates to avoid the overlap with Paris and Düsseldorf."

The schedule change will not affect the Bread & butter trade show in Barcelona. It will take place as scheduled, from January 20 to 22, said Müeller. However, the next Bread & butter Berlin will not take place at the same time with the other Berlin fairs. Premium Exhibtions and B-in-Berlin have already announced to present about a week earlier, from January 29 to 31.
