Asia CanTech 2020 update
I thought I would give you an update as to where we are with Asia CanTech 2020.
There is still a lot of interest in the event, and last week we had a booking from six Vietnamese can makers.
The conference is still planned to go ahead we are keeping a close eye on what governments are advising regarding PPE, social distancing, travel restrictions etc, and will keep you informed.
Talking to people in Vietnam it is looking very much business as usual there, with bars, restaurants and shops open. The only snag is that they are not issuing any visas for foreign travellers at the moment! Obviously we will keep you all informed as the visa situation develops.
The hotel’s cancellation policy offers a full refund up to 48 hours before your stay. If we have to postpone Asia CanTech, you will of course be offered a full refund or be given the option of transferring the booking to the next show.
I have spoken to some of you and it looks like companies are saying travel abroad when possible, if it is safe to do so. Different countries are at different levels of removing lockdown restrictions, and we hope that by August things will have improved considerably. We are constantly reviewing the situation, and once the visa rules change we will be back with further information.
