Reed Exhibitions Mexico, organisers of Fastener Fair Mexico, has announced that the 2020 face-to-face event, scheduled for 8th – 9th October at Centro Citibanamex, has been postponed to June 2021, and a virtual exhibition will also take its place this year.
Commenting on the announcement, Javier Garcia, show director said: “Unfortunately, the actual conditions in Mexico City do not allow us to guarantee the face-to-face events in October, but we acknowledge how important it is to keep the industry active and connected. Therefore, we are pleased to announce our transformation this year to ‘Virtual Fastener Fair Mexico’, from 8th – 10th.”
The virtual event will be a three-day online trade show to support the fastening industry with the aim to help participants to do business, network and learn through digital platforms to reactivate their businesses. “The wellbeing and safety of all those who participate in the show is our top priority, therefore, in parallel with our virtual offer, we are working on the measures that will be implemented at our Fastener Fair Mexico when we meet in 2021,” commented Garcia.
Reed Exhibitions has recently published its’ Reopening Events 5 Points Global Plan’ which outlines the measures the organisers will act upon to protect the safety and security of all who participate at its events; along with the recommendations of both federal and local health authorities regarding events organisation.
“On behalf of Reed Exhibitions, I would like to express my gratitude to all our exhibitors, partners, attendees, suppliers, media, and staff for their support. With Fastener Fair Mexico, we will continue to actively monitor the evolution of the situation and create new ways to connect our community,” concluded Javier García.
