Reedexpo also postpones its shows - PackPlus South & PrintFair from March to December


Given the grave concerns over everyone impacted by coronavirus, Reedexpo has also decided to postpone its twin shows PackPlus South and PrintFair want to December 2020 which was due to take place on 20-22 March in Hyderabad.

“Expressing our concern for everyone impacted by coronavirus, like all of you, we have carefully monitored the global health crisis related to COVID-19 coronavirus. Our top priority is the health and safety of everyone involved in PackPlus South 2020 and PrintFair 2020; employees, customers and exhibitors. Also due to the uncertainty in the region and around the world, and after consultation with all our stakeholders, the venue management, supporting associations, and in alignment with the advice from the Indian public health authorities regarding travel to and from impacted countries, we have taken the decision to postpone our event which was due to take place on 20-22 March in Hyderabad. PackPlus South & PrintFair is now scheduled for 18-20 December 2020 at HITEX Exhibition Center in Hyderabad,” says Prateek Kaushik.

“This is not a decision that has been taken lightly. We fully understand and appreciate the level of planning that is required to participate in an event like ours. Regrettably, the COVID-19 outbreak and related travel and commercial restrictions make those preparations too difficult to hold the show as planned in March. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. We are grateful to our customers for all their support and constructive input during this challenging period,” added Prateek Kaushik.

"Leading up to the December event, we will continue to serve the PackPlus and PrintFair community and we are preparing a number of solutions aiming to provide customized services to participants and further maximize successful outcomes at the December event. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and remain in close contact with all PackPlus South and PrintFair stakeholders in the coming weeks. Our thoughts are with all those affected in these difficult times,” concluded Prateek.
