Asian trade fairs deferred amidst coronavirus outbreak

With Coronavirus spreading its menace both within and outside China, trade fair organisers across Asia have either cancelled or rescheduled the exhibitions to a later date. Organisers cited travel security and well-being of the participants as the prime reason for postponing the fairs that were to be held in Bangladesh, China, Pakistan, India and Japan.

Organisers of the 17th Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery exhibition (DTG) have rescheduled the fair, which will now be held from June 11-14 at the International Convention City Basundhara (ICCB), Dhaka.

CHIC Shanghai March edition which was scheduled from March 11-13 has been postponed. “The decision has been taken keeping the health factor of the people in mind,” the organisers said.

Messe Frankfurt, which is an active player in China market, announced that its three textile fairs scheduled in Shanghai are postponed for the time being in the midst of Coronavirus outbreak. The fairs postponed by Messe Frankfurt are Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics-Spring Edition, Yarn Expo Spring and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles.

Apparel Sourcing Week (ASW), India’s premier garment sourcing show, has been rescheduled to June 18-20, 2020. However, the venue for the event will remain unchanged.

The first edition of Denimandjeans Japan show is also deferred for the time being, and the rescheduled dates are yet to be announced. However, there is no change as per now for the Vietnam show which is on May 28-29 and the India show which is on July 8-9, 2020.

The 13th edition of IGATEX Pakistan, one of the largest garment and textile machinery and accessories exhibitions in South Asia, has also been postponed and the exhibition will now be held from July 1-4, 2020, at Expo Centre, Lahore.

The large number of fair cancellations will dent trade prospects of several companies that have been anticipating good business from these shows.
