IFS China postponed 14 May 2020

Organisers of the International Fastener Show China 2020 have decided to postpone the event until 3rd – 5th November 2020, to ensure the health of all participants. The venue of the show will remain the same – the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center.

Despite the Covid-19 situation in China generally being controlled and moving towards a positive direction explained organisers, the situation continues to get more serious globally, and as such the situation cannot be mitigated in a short period.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the postponement. At the same time, we truly appreciate the continuing support from all exhibitors, visitors and partners of IFS China,” continued organisers. “At the moment, the IFS organising committee is actively coordinating with our partners, pavilion organisers and the exhibition centre to ensure the show will be successful. We also hope all exhibitors can have enough time to adjust their plans and products so the November IFS China will be as high-quality as before.”

As an integrated international trading and communication platform for the fastener industry, IFS China provides a space for exhibitors to achieve their goals of expanding the market, building their brand and selling during the event. The show attracts fastener experts from all over the world for its complete service chain, various products and activities.

“We sincerely appreciate everybody’s understanding and support and would like to reiterate that the development of the fastener industry depends on us overcoming the difficulties together. Please take care during this special period and we look forward to seeing everybody in Shanghai, where we can celebrate the prosperity of the fastener industry, together.”
