SIAL China, ‘Asia’s largest Food Innovation Exhibition’ has been officially postponed until 28-30 September 2020 and will now be hosted at Shanghai’s National Exhibition Conference Centre – the same venue as CIIE – due to impact of the coronavirus.

Although the official SIAL website had not updated their dates from 13-15 May and venue as the the New International Expo Centre at the time of publishing this article, communications have been sent to exhibitors from Nicolas Trentesaux, SIAL Managing Director and Elaine Chia, CEO Comexposium Asia Pacific updating the news.

The decision to postpone the event followed a survey with exhibitors which yielded an “overwhelming response rate, and very clear preference, with 97% of respondents expressing a strong desire to postpone to September.”

SIAL is now working on the plans for the new date and location.
