The organizers of the international trade fair ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA have decided to reschedule the event for November 18-20, 2020 in Singapore to ensure a successful trade show for every exhibitor and visitor coming from all over the world.
“We’ve come to this decision after a long, detailed, and very careful assessment of the situation with our exhibition venue partner and the authorities in Singapore as well as with key people in the international fresh produce business,” says Will Wollbold, Commercial Director of Global Produce Events (GPE), the organizer of ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA.
“We want to help the global fresh fruit and vegetable industry to reconnect in Asia in 2020. But in light of COVID-19 we believe it is right for exhibitors and visitors alike that we reschedule to mid-November. This will give them more than six months from now to plan their participation,” explains Wollbold
The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) welcomes the move. “ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA is truly a significant platform for the global fresh produce industry, and we’re pleased to host the event at Singapore EXPO on 18-20 November 2020,” said Andrew Phua, Executive Director of Exhibitions and Conferences, STB. “We understand Global Produce Events’ decision to reschedule ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA, and are committed to working closely with them towards a successful show. We remain confident in Singapore’s strong reputation as a preferred destination for business events, and look forward to welcoming our delegates to Singapore.”
