Asia Fruit Logistica moves to Singapore

For those doing business in Asia, mark your calendar for September 16-18, the new 2020 dates for Asia Fruit Logistica. Due to continued instability in Hong Kong, the premier fresh produce trade show will take place in Singapore near the Changi Airport.  

 

Following the Singapore show in 2020, organizers will review market conditions as well as the response to the new location before deciding on the venue for future editions.

 

In 2019, more than 12,000 trade professionals from 70+ countries did business with more than 800 exhibitors at the event in Hong Kong from September 4-6.
