Inaugural IBTM Asia Pacific postponed again

Reed Exhibitions has moved IBTM Asia Pacific to April 5 and 6, 2022, the second postponement for the inaugural event as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event was initially scheduled for April 6 to 8, 2020 but was pushed to April 13-14, 2021.

The decision was taken following the latest government advice regarding Covid-19, and as a result of in-depth discussions with customers and hosted buyers from the region and globally.

Commenting on the announcement, Michael Jones, event manager, IBTM Asia Pacific, said: “While we are seeing very positive moves towards the gradual return of live events, the situation is still fragile. Although Singapore is considered a safe destination, IBTM Asia Pacific is a global event which attracts an international audience, and therefore we have a desire and a responsibility to give our attendees the safest and best possible in-person experience at a time when hopefully travel restrictions will have been lifted.”

Jones described the decision as a “disappointing” one and expressed a continued commitment to making Singapore the event’s host city in 2021.
