Reed Exhibitions has announced that it has moved the date of the inaugural edition of IBTM Asia Pacific in Singapore to 5-6 April 2022.
IBTM Asia Pacific event manager, Michael Jones (pictured) said the decision was taken as a result of in-depth discussions with customers and hosted buyers from the region and globally.
"While we are seeing very positive moves towards the gradual return of live events, the situation is still fragile. Although Singapore is considered a safe destination, IBTM Asia Pacific is a global event which attracts an international audience, and therefore we have a desire and a responsibility to give our attendees the safest and best possible in-person experience at a time when hopefully travel restrictions will have been lifted," Jones said in a statement.
“We had hoped to be able to go ahead with the event this year and obviously it is disappointing to have to delay the event for a second time, but the health and safety of our customers, hosted buyers, partners and employees is our number one priority.
"We are committed to Singapore as a host city and look forward to returning to the region next year to meet with as many customers and partners as possible."
IBTM Asia Pacific will take place at Marina Bay Sands from 5-6 April 2022.
