Vinexpo Hong Kong is the latest wine fair to change its schedule in response to the Covid-19 epidemic.
Originally scheduled for 26 to 28 May 2020, Vinexpo Hong Kong will now be held in July 2020. According to a statement from Vinexpo, the new dates were confirmed after exhibitors asked for the change, wanting it to be rescheduled, but for a time in the first half of the year.
“We are pleased to serve such a close-knit community that was able to tell us exactly what they need as an industry. We are doing everything in our power to make the rescheduled Vinexpo Hong Kong 2020 a must-attend event in Asia-Pacific,” said Vinexpo's CEO, Rodolphe Lameyse.
Vinexpo also said that “a significant portion of companies have confirmed their participation” on the new dates.
“Vinexpo Hong Kong is a key business event in Asia, so we welcome the postponement, which will enable us to reconnect with our customers and energise end-of-year sales,” said Philippe Castéja, Chairman of Borie Manoux.
The event will be held in the same venue, the HKCEC (Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre).
