Informa Markets Vietnam and Messe Düsseldorf Asia today announced that the 9th International Plastics and Rubber Technologies and Materials Exhibition for Vietnam scheduled for June this year will be postponed to 23 – 25 November 2021, in Ho Chi Minh City. With the evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, rescheduling the trade exhibition to November 2021 was deemed necessary in the continued fight against the pandemic and on the back of social distancing measures, border control and travel restrictions in many countries.
Gernot Ringling, Managing Director, Messe Düsseldorf Asia, said: “After careful deliberation with our partner, Informa Markets Vietnam, we see this decision to postpone Plastics & Rubber Vietnam as being in the best interest of our exhibitors, attendees, partners and staff. The health and safety of all stakeholders is our top priority. We remain committed to meet the business needs of our industry partners, local and international exhibitors and trade visitors, and look forward to building on these trusted relationships for an even more successful and effective participation in November.”
BT Tee, General Manager, Informa Markets Vietnam, added: “We would like to thank our industry partners, exhibitors, and visitors who have stood by the trade exhibition as we make these difficult decisions, and appreciate their continued support towards the new dates. In the meantime, we will be launching additional digital activities to engage the region’s plastics and rubber industries, and to keep you and these industries up-to-date in the run-up to the physical exhibition later this year.”
The new dates will place all participants from the plastics and rubber industries in a safer and stronger position to conduct business in a stable and primed market, carrying forward the successful status of Plastics & Rubber Vietnam.
The Plastics & Rubber Vietnam team will reach out to all industry partners and participants on the new schedule for event logistics and planning, and we look forward to welcoming a robust event in November 2021.
