Reed Exhibitions has announced that it has moved the date of the inaugural edition of IBTM Asia Pacific in Singapore, once again, this time to 5-6 April 2022. The show had originally been planned for April 2021, and then moved to June 2021.
The latest decision was taken following government coronavirus advice and discussions with customers and hosted buyers from the region and globally.
Commenting on the announcement, Michael Jones, Reed’s event manager, IBTM Asia Pacific, said: ‘While we are seeing very positive moves towards the gradual return of live events, the situation is still fragile. Although Singapore is considered a safe destination, IBTM Asia Pacific is a global event which attracts an international audience, and therefore we have a desire and a responsibility to give our attendees the safest and best possible in-person experience at a time when hopefully travel restrictions will have been lifted.
“We had hoped to be able to go ahead with the event this year and obviously it is disappointing to have to delay the event for a second time, but the health and safety of our customers, hosted buyers, partners and employees is our number one priority. We are extremely grateful for the continued understanding of our customers, partners and team. We are committed to Singapore as a host city and look forward to returning to the region next year to meet with as many customers and partners as possible.”
IBTM Asia Pacific is now scheduled at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, 5-6 April 2022. More information: www.ibtmasiapacific.com
