In light of global concerns due to the on-going Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Informa Markets, organiser of ConnecTechAsia, is postponing the 2020 edition to 29 September - 1 October 2020 at the Singapore EXPO & MAX Atria. The event was originally scheduled for 9 - 11 June 2020 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
Informa Markets will continue to run ConnecTechAsia in partnership with Singapore's Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). Mr Ivan Ferrari, Event Director, Tech, Media & Entertainment Events, Informa Markets, said, "Our ability to deliver an event that maximises our attendee's investment in time and resources is our biggest priority, and after considering all aspects, we have taken the decision to postpone this year's edition. I would like to thank our partners, exhibitors, registered visitors and all stakeholders for their strong support during this period. We are taking immediate steps to provide all parties with the assistance they require."
Mr Howie Lau, Chief Industry Development Officer at IMDA, and co-chair of the ConnecTechAsia Advisory Committee noted the decision to postpone the event to the later part of the year. He added, "Singapore is delighted to host ConnecTechAsia in September. In partnership with Informa Markets, we aim to create a comprehensive trade show, where Singapore's vibrant infocomm industry and innovation ecosystem will benefit from the array of activities."
"We understand Informa Markets' decision to reschedule ConnecTechAsia, and are committed to working closely with them and our valued partners towards a successful show. We remain confident in Singapore's strong reputation as a preferred destination for MICE events. The event is a key highlight in Singapore's event calendar, and we look forward to welcoming all attendees and exhibitors at a later date," said Mr Andrew Phua, Director of Exhibitions and Conferences, Singapore Tourism Board.
