Mostra Convegno postponed to September
MILAN, Italy, 26 February 2020: Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) and Biomass Innovation Expo (BIE), scheduled to take place from March 17 to 20 in Milan, have been postponed to September 8 to 11, following the recent outbreak of the novel strain of coronavirus (Covid-19) in Italy, Reed Exhibitions Italia, the organisers of the shows, announced through a Press release.
MCE is reportedly one of the leading shows in the world focusing on the latest energy- efficient solutions in HVAC&R, plumbing and renewable energy.
Reed said they took the decision to postpone the shows after constantly monitoring the Covid-19 outbreak and scrupulously following all the directives issued by the relevant Italian Health Authorities.
“The health of our customers, partners and employees is our number one priority,” said Massimiliano Pierini, Managing Director of Reed Exhibitions Italia. “With the recent development of the outbreak in Italy, especially in Lombardy, and taking into account the decree announced by the Lombardia Region to suspend ‘[…] events and any form of meeting in public or private place’, we have had many discussions with a number of customers and partners over the last few days and we have decided to reschedule our events to September.
“This is not a decision we have taken lightly – our customers, partners and team in Italy have worked incredibly hard on these events and, while it is disappointing to postpone, it’s imperative that we prioritise the health and safety of everyone involved. Our goal remains to provide the best customer value for everyone attending MCE and BIE in September and to serve the industry more globally in the best conditions of security and serenity. With this in mind, over the coming weeks, we will be creating ways of keeping our community connected to support and collaborate and to keep our world moving during this difficult period”.
Reed said the MCE and BIE team is at the disposal of the customers, stakeholders, buyers, visitors and any professionals for any questions they may have in managing the transition to the next issues of MCE and BIE, later in 2020.
