Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor has rescheduled its annual show for Aug. 31–Sept. 2, 2020, in Shanghai.
The event, originally scheduled for March 24–26, 2020, was postponed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus in multiple Chinese provinces.
The event has also been moved to a new location, the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC), which is the largest exhibition complex in Shanghai, according to organizers of the event.
“The postponement of the original dates was necessary to protect the health and safety of exhibitors and visitors from the recent outbreak of the coronavirus,” organizers said in a statement. “Confident in the improvement of the situation in China by the end of August 2020, and inspired by the can-do attitude of the exhibitors, Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor will continue to strongly contribute to the flooring industry, turning the situation at hand into an opportunity for further development of the show and create another successful flooring event.”
Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor is one of the largest flooring trade shows in the world.
More than 2,700 people around the world have died from the flu-like coronavirus since it began to spread in China late last year, according to CBS News. Outbreaks of the virus have since occurred in South Korea, Italy and Iran, sending global markets reeling.
