Asia Fruit Logistica reschedules to November

Organizers of Asia Fruit Logistica 2020 are rescheduling the mid-September show until November 18-20 in Singapore. 

“We want to help the global fresh fruit and vegetable industry to reconnect in Asia in 2020,” explains Will Wollbold, commercial director of global produce events, the organizer of Asia Fruit Logistica. “Registration numbers from all over the world for Asia Fruit Logistica 2020 are good and broad. But in light of COVID-19 we believe it is right for exhibitors and visitors alike that we reschedule to mid-November. This will give them more than six months from now to plan their participation.” 

Singapore is a very reassuring location for Asia Fruit Logistica, Asia’s premier event for the international fresh fruit and vegetable business. 

“Singapore is applying some of the strictest health and safety measures to fight this pandemic, including state-of-the-art technology which we want to make available to our exhibitors and trade visitors,” said Wollbold, “And let’s not forget that Singapore is a key global transport hub with one-flight connections from hundreds of cities around the world. It means it’s so much easier to come here.”
