As a result of flight restrictions impeding business travel to Vietnam, Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd has announced the postponement of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City.
Restrictions that came in to force in March to prevent the spread of COVID-19 continue to affect international travel to Vietnam. Logistical uncertainty has therefore hampered planning for the diverse international contingent for the event.
“As a responsible trade fair organizer, we hold a commitment to our participants that extends beyond the fairground to also include safe and practical travel to the venue,” said Stephan Buurma, Member of the Board of Management, Messe Frankfurt Group.
At its previous edition, Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City welcomed 359 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions, as well as over 8,900 trade visitors from the automotive service industry. The fair has been gaining influence in the region since it was established in 2017 thanks to its extensive coverage of motorcycles, the commercial and passenger vehicle segments as well as automotive manufacturing and automation. The 2021 fair will take place from June 30-July 2 at the Saigon Convention and Exhibition Centre.
