The Popkomm music fair will be taking place later than usual this year, on Oct. 8-10 in Berlin.

Last year, the international music and entertainment business trade show -- organized by Messe Berlin -- boasted 886 exhibitors from 57 countries and attracted 15,420 visitors over three days in September. Keynote speakers included Billy Bragg and Mike Batt.

Billboard understands that the event is being staged three weeks later this year to allow for improvements to the exhibition centre facilities.
