ProPak Asia 2020, the Processing & Packaging trade event for Food, Drink, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, and Consumer Products will be rescheduled as the Thai government orders the temporary closure of certain public places in the country. according to organisers.
The event was originally scheduled for 17-20 June at Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC). The new dates will be announced in April 2020, agreed organisers, relevant authorities and stakeholders of the show.
In a message to participants, ProPak Asia organisers said:
On March 21, Thailand has decided to increase public safety measures. Twenty-six categories of public places in Bangkok will be closed during March 22 through April 12, including exhibition and convention venues in order to contain the spread of the COVID-19. On March 26, foreigners will be banned from entering the country under the emergency decree. In consultation with key stakeholders, exhibitors, and industry partners, the organizing team concluded that postponing the event in June is in the best interests of the industry.
We believe that postponing the event will allow more time for normality and confidence to return to the marketplace, ease travel restrictions, and provide all-around better conditions for exhibitors and visitors to engage. The organizing team will reach out to all participants regarding detailed arrangements shortly as well as surveying stakeholders on potential dates.
We wish to thank those who participate and support the shows and we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding and apologize for any inconvenience. Our sole focus remains to provide an event of enhanced quality, with more exhibitors and qualified trade buyers to make your participation a huge success.
