HONG KONG — Organizers have announced that the 2021 Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo has been postponed until Dec. 22-24. The event, initially scheduled for later this month, was moved due to uncertainty about participants being able to travel to Shanghai because of an increase in coronavirus cases and China’s resultant anti-epidemic measures.
In a statement, the organizers of the show say they made the decision to delay the event to provide more certainty for participants in their preparation. The annual event is organized by the China Laundry Association and the China Light Industry Machinery Association, as well as Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Unifair Exhibition Service Co Ltd.
The event will remain at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre for the new December dates.
Additional public health measures will also be put in place during this year’s edition, organizers said. “These include real identity pre-registration, entry checkpoints to verify the digital health code of all participants and onsite temperature scans,” the statement said. Frequent sanitization of facilities will also take place, and distancing measures will be implemented for seminar attendees.
