The event in Hamburg was postponed, without new dates, due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
In view of the exponential evolution of the COVID-19 virus epidemic, the organization of the event Aircraft Interiors Expo 2020 (AIX2020) announced, this Tuesday, the postponement of the event. No new dates have been released yet.
All logistical processes related to the event are currently frozen and will be carried over “as is” to the next dates.
Here is the Official Postponement announcement, from the organising company (Reed Exhibitions):
Reed Exhibitions has today announced that Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX), World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) and the Passenger Experience Conference (PEC) which was planned to take place at the Hamburg Messe, Germany from 30 March to 2 April 2020, will be postponed following the escalation of COVID-19 in Europe.
Speaking about the announcement, Katie Murphy, Portfolio Director at Reed Exhibitions, said: “The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority. In close coordination with all partners involved, we will promptly announce an alternative date for the events.
“We have been closely monitoring the situation and notices issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO), as well as the German Federal Government and Hamburg local authorities. While it is disappointing to postpone the events, given the ongoing developments related to COVID-19, we believe it is the best course of action for all involved.
“This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We trust that postponing the events will provide the international passenger experience industry the opportunity to achieve their business objectives later in the year and we are working to have confirmed dates as soon as possible. We thank our exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their support.”
