In response to a recent wave of COVID-19 cases in Guangzhou, Wire and Cable Guangzhou, originally scheduled to be held from 21 – 23 July 2021 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex, will be postponed.
Earlier, the People’s Government of Guangzhou Municipality released a set of guidelines about prevention and control measures including the suspension of all large-scale events. Following the government’s guidance, the organisers of Wire & Cable Guangzhou have decided to postpone the fair. The new dates will be announced in due course.
Commenting on the decision, Mr Emeka Hu, the General Manager of Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, said: “In compliance with the local government’s guidelines and with health and safety of our show attendees being our primary concern, we believe postponing the event is the best arrangement under the current circumstances. We will closely observe the developments in the province and will announce the new show dates as soon as it is safe to resume trade fair activity in Guangzhou. We want to thank all of our stakeholders for their understanding and continued support.”
Organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, China Southern Power Grid Media Co Ltd and Guangzhou Boyou Exhibition Service Co Ltd, Wire & Cable Guangzhou facilitates industry development in South China. With a particular focus on electrical power, exhibitors include manufacturers and solution providers of wire and cabling, testing instruments and smart grids.
While the 2020 edition was deferred due to COVID-19, the last physical exhibition in 2019 attracted 220 exhibitors and 26,410 professional buyers from 41 countries and regions. The fair’s visitors span a number of industries, including power engineering, construction, telecommunication, petrochemicals, security and lighting.
