Tarsus Group has today confirmed that its upcoming edition of Labelexpo Southeast Asia 2020, due to take place at Bangkok in May, has been postponed until September in light of concerns over coronavirus. The show will now take place on 10 – 12 September 2020.
‘We have taken the difficult decision to postpone Labelexpo Southeast Asia 2020 in May due to coronavirus/COVID-19,’ said Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series. This is an unprecedented situation, and given the vast amount of preparation that goes into our shows, not a decision we have taken lightly. However, the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our top priority, and working on the advice of our local partners and BITEC, we feel the best course of action is to postpone the show until September.
‘We have been continuously monitoring the situation in Thailand and the wider Southeast Asia region, and are following all local government advice, as well as that of the World Health Organization.
‘We thank all our exhibitors and partners for their understanding at this difficult time, and look forward to working with them on the rescheduled show. All other Labelexpo shows in 2020 are currently scheduled to go ahead as planned.’
