wire and Tube China, leading spin-offs of the wire and Tube show in Düsseldorf, are back for another run. After the COVID-19 outbreak at the beginning of the year, this is the first wire and Tube branded fair to take place as scheduled, from September 23 to 26, 2020, at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).
If you are planning to attend the show, whether as a visitor or as an exhibitor, here is everything you need to know.
Precautions taken for COVID-19
Let’s address the bost burning issue first: over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has raised many question marks regarding safety, hygiene, and health risks. To date, the situation in China appears to be under control, with only 148 new cases and 5 deaths reported in the latest 7 days, according to official data by WHO. The organizers have repeatedly stated that people’s safety is a top priority and are working closely with health authorities to monitor current developments and create a safe environment for visitors and exhibitors alike.
As you may already know, since March 28, the country’s borders have been closed to almost all foreigners. However, following the decline of coronavirus cases and fatalities in the country, as of August 28, the Chinese Government has partially relaxed travel bans and restrictions. For more detailed information we suggest you contact the Chinese Embassy in your own country.
We would also like to remind you that all foreigners will need to obtain an entry visa before proceeding to China. All visa applicants are also required to hold an invitation issued by authorized institutions within China. More information on how to request an invitation can be found here >>
Numerous exhibiting companies will rely on local agents and representatives, due to the current travel restrictions. We can therefore expect the wire and Tube China 2020 to have more of a local relevance compared to previous years.
To quote the organizers, "the dark clouds will always disperse, and the development of the industry will never stop." The huge scale of Chinese economy allows the country to withstand risks and adverse conditions.
Let’s not forget that 2020 is also the sprint year of China's Thirteenth Five-Year Plan, the first initiated under President Xi Jinping’s administration. The Chinese Government is positive that the increasing intensity of policy adjustment will release tremendous potential and momentum for China’s development.
