Alle deelnemers van het Holland Paviljoen zijn al op de hoogte gebracht. Marjan geeft aan dat de organisator van de beurs een weloverwogen, maar moeilijke keuze heeft moeten maken. Ze vindt het spijtig dat de beurs is uitgesteld, maar stelt ook dat gezien de uitbraak van het Coronavirus dit de beste keuze was. Veiligheid en gezondheid van de exhibitors en bezoekers van APM moet voorop blijven staan.

Michelle Lim, Managing Director, Reed Exhibitions, said, “APM has been the leading maritime marketplace in Asia for over 15 editions and prides itself on delivering strong business outcomes for exhibitors and visitors. All 15 pavilions at APM as well as major exhibitors have expressed commitment to returning during the new dates (30 September to 2 October 2020) and to working closely with us to deliver an outstanding exhibition once again. We are also glad to have had continued support from Marina Bay Sands, which allowed us to secure the same award-winning venue during the new dates.”

Mr Andrew Phua, Director, Exhibitions and Conferences, Singapore Tourism Board, said, “We understand the decision taken by Reed Exhibitions to postpone APM in light of the Novel Coronavirus situation. During this challenging period, the health and safety of locals, visitors and industry partners remain our priority. We are staying vigilant, strengthening our defences and monitoring the situation closely. STB stands firmly by our MICE industry, and we will work closely with organisers, industry stakeholders and relevant government agencies to support the continued success of APM 2020.”
