APPPEXPO 2020 has been postponed because of the sudden and fierce coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan which then spread across China and other countries. The expo is concurrently held with the 28th Shanghai Int’l Ad & Sign Technology and Equipment Exhibition, Shanghai Int’l Digital Textile Printing Expo, Shanghai Int’ l Express Printing & Graphic Expo, Shanghai Int’l Lighting Expo and the relevant activities, was scheduled to organise from March 4-7, 2020 at NECC, Shanghai. At the beginning of Chinese New Year, the outbreak of pneumonia caused by coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was sudden and fierce. In the severe situation, all provinces and cities in China initiated a first-level response to major public health emergencies and cancelled all large-scale events.

In such situation, carrying out APPPEXPO 2020 would also have been unreasonable and thus the postponement in accordance to the circular of Shanghai Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China and Shanghai Municipal People’s Government on further strengthening the prevention and control of the outbreak. APPPEXPO Committee conveys regret for the inconvenience caused by the exhibition’s postponement. The committee will
keep close communication with relevant departments to determine the latest dates for the expo. The committee is in contact with the exhibitors and visitors. For further information, contact Eveline Luo at: evelinelxf@apppexpo.com or Carol Liu at: viainfo@apppexpo.com.
