Exhibitors back ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA’s decision to continue as scheduled

ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2019 will be held on 4-6 September 2019 as planned

Hong Kong/Berlin, 21 August 2019 – Exhibitors back ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA’s decision to continue as scheduled. The leading continental trade show for Asia’s fresh produce business conducted an opinion poll among its exhibitors and informed them about the result in written form yesterday. A representative majority of exhibitors voted to continue with ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2019 on 4-6 September 2019 as planned, with Asiafruit Congress on 3 September 2019.

 “We want to thank our exhibitors providing us with their opinions and feedback that helped us making this truly tough decision.” says Wilfried Wollbold, Commercial Director of ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA. “We remain confident that we can hold a fruitful ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA, even though the situation in Hong Kong continues to be challenging and developments are not easy to foresee.”

 The forecast visitor attendance based on pre-show sales and redeemed vouchers indicates an attendance level of 80 per cent of the 2018 show. Furthermore, 15 per cent of visitors purchase tickets onsite, so a good visitor turnout can be expected.

 “We do everything we can to reassure visitors in the two weeks before ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA opens its doors and are asking our exhibitors to support us with this objective by reaching out to their clients.”

 ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA informs participants about things they can easily do to be as safe as possible in Hong Kong on their website and will provide updates on its social media channels.  

 ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA offers exhibitors and visitors to address their concerns and questions under the following hotline +66 2941 4601 or contact the organization team via info@gp-events.com.
