Postponement and Venue Change of the 34th CHINAPLAS, the International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries

27 April 2020

Since the occurrence of COVID-19, we have been closely monitoring the situation. The virus is now largely under control in China, but poses a high degree of uncertainty globally. China has now a formidable task of fighting against local rebound infections while preventing the next wave of outbreak from imported cases.

On 6th April 2020, the State Council of China issued the circular of “The Further Control and Preventive Measures of the Novel Coronavirus at Key Venues, Units and Groups”.  According to “Preventive Suggestions” in the circular, it has clearly mentioned that all kinds of exhibitions have to be stopped for the time being.

Under such circumstances, the 34th CHINAPLAS cannot be held as scheduled and will be further postponed from 3-6 August 2020 to 13-16 April 2021, and the show venue will be changed from National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai to Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center in Shenzhen.

Taking this opportunity, we would like to express our gratitude for your continual support to CHINAPLAS and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the postponement and venue change of the 34th CHINAPLAS.  As the show organizer, we have to put the safety and health of all show participants as our top priority and would appreciate your kind understanding.

Regarding the participation or admission fee paid by exhibitors and visitors, we will make the necessary arrangements and notify you soon.  Please be assured that the Adsale team will always be at your service and will do our very best to assist our exhibitors, visitors and partners to tackle any difficulty arising from the show postponement.

We believe CHINAPLAS to be held next April will be a better timing for participants from around the world to have quality exchange.  Exhibitors will also be more prepared in supporting the new market demands brought about by market recovery.  As an important manufacturing and R&D center for innovative technology in China, Shenzhen has been chosen by the Chinese government as one of the driving engines in the future development of the Greater Bay Area.  In shifting the 34th CHINAPLAS to Shenzhen, it will enable global plastics and rubber suppliers to tap into the emerging business opportunities in tandem with the further opening up of the China market.  

In the coming days, we will roll out the preparation work for CHINAPLAS 2021.  We look forward to meeting you in Shenzhen, the energetic city fueled by creativity and innovations.  In the next spring, let’s work together towards greater heights!
