Originally scheduled for April 21 to 24, 2020, Chinaplas now will be held on Aug. 3 to 6 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai. The event was rescheduled as a result of the coronavirus.
In announcing the new show dates, Ada Leung, General Manager at show organizer Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd., said, “Many market activities like consumption, manufacturing and investment etc. are put on hold during the epidemic. And now, some companies have already resumed work and manufacturing in an orderly manner. We believe that once the outbreak is controlled, all suppressed market demand will be released. The postponement of Chinaplas to August in Shanghai will help the upstream and downstream industries to seize business opportunities during market rebound period."

The press release also noted the contributions made by companies in the plastics and rubber supply chain to “assist in the epidemic control measures” through donations of money and materials and acceleration of manufacturing processes. Medical plastics and associated processing technologies will be featured at the event.
Organizers anticipate welcoming more than 3800 exhibitors to this year’s event.
Visitors who pre-register before May 22 will receive a badge by mail, said Adsale.
