Reed Travel Exhibitions has postponed two of its events in Singapore, the inaugural edition of IBTM Asia Pacific, and ILTM Asia Pacific, due to the Covid-19 situation.
Originally scheduled to be held from April 6-8 this year, IBTM Asia Pacific’s inaugural edition will instead be held from April 13-14, 2021. Luxury travel event, ILTM Asia Pacific, originally scheduled for May 18-21 this year, has been pushed to May 31 to June 3, 2021.
Shane Hannam and Alison Gilmore, portfolio directors of IBTM and ILTM respectively, indicated that the postponements were decided after in-depth discussions with customers, whose welfare were their priorities.
Both have also stressed that these decisions were not taken lightly. They recognise that “business has to continue”, and as such, expressed that they will be creating ways to keep the respective communities connected, “to support and collaborate to keep our world moving during this difficult period”.
Meanwhile, the rest of the events in ILTM’s global portfolio for 2020 remain unchanged at press time: ILTM Latin America, Sao Paulo (May 5-8); ILTM North America, Riviera Maya, Mexico (September 21-24); ILTM China, Shanghai (October 28-30); and ILTM Cannes (December 7-10).
