The Tissue World Miami conference, which was due to run next week, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak.
The conference was set to take place in Miami, Florida from Mar. 10 to 13. New dates have yet to be announced.
Conference organizer Informa Markets released the following statement:
“Since the international situation on COVID-19 started in late January, Informa Markets has been guided by local government and health authority advice, as well as the views of the communities we serve, in making decisions about our portfolio of events. Our commitment to serve and support our communities has led to the postponement/rescheduling of a number of events across our wider group.
“For Tissue World Miami, due to the recent and increasing travel restriction impacting our exhibitors, visitors and partners, we have decided to postpone the show to take place sometime later this year (dates to be announced soon) for which all tickets and bookings will still be valid.
“The information on our website will be updated and further announcements on the fair will be announced in due course.
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this will cause for you. We trust that you understand that we made this decision in the best interests of all our customers and partners. We wish to assure you that your agreements, registration and participation is unchanged valid for the new dates. We look very much forward to welcome you at Tissue World Miami soon.”
