NürnbergMesse China and Beer Link have decided to move their Craft Beer China 2022 event, originally scheduled for 27-29 July at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, to new 7-9 September 2022 dates. The exhibition venue will be changed to the Nanjing International Expo Center.
Organisers say their decision was made "for the safety of all parties involved and in order to safeguard the interests of exhibitors and trade visitors in terms of trade fair success and visiting experience".
Recently, the novel coronavirus has been circulating on a large scale in China, with a major impact on public life. Although the situation in Shanghai is under control, most exhibition venues have been temporarily converted into mobile hospitals, so the basic conditions and safety guarantees for hosting exhibitions are not yet available.
The health and safety of all exhibitors and visitors is a top priority, organisers of Craft Beer China 2022 have emphasised.
