Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, trade show organiser XPO has announced EMEX will be rescheduled until later in the year.
The event, which was set to run on 5-7 May, will now be held on the 12-14 October 2020.
“The Prime Minister and the Ministry of Health have updated their positions across the past 72 hours specifically regarding border restrictions that would make it increasingly difficult for previously confirmed offshore exhibitor participation at some of our shows, social distancing, and mass gatherings involving more than 500 people,” managing director Brent Spillane said in a statement released today.
“We support these initiatives to ‘flatten the curve’ of the spread of the virus for the benefit of all New Zealanders above the importance that events hold for the wider economy.
“Our primary focus at the moment is the health and safety of all of our customers and staff, and we know this is the right decision for all.
“We ask that you bear with us while we consider your questions across the coming days. This situation is evolving and there may be further announcements to follow.”
