Vitafoods Europe postponed due to coronavirus

Vitafoods Europe has announced it will postpone the event in order to take the necessary precautions from Coronavirus. Informa Markets released the following statement today:

“In light of the ongoing COVID-19 health situation, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone Vitafoods Europe 2020 until 1-3 September 2020,” said Chris Lee, Managing Director, Health and Nutrition Network, Europe, at Informa Markets.

“This conclusion is not one that has been reached easily. However, following consultation with our stakeholders, and taking the continually evolving health concerns and travel restrictions into consideration, we are agreed the postponement is the best course of action.

“By acting now, we hope to remove the uncertainty affecting exhibitors and visitors and allow them to make more concrete business decisions.

“The event in September will still take place at Palexpo, Geneva, Switzerland, and all existing registrations and commitments remain in place.

“We understand how important Vitafoods Europe is to the industry and how much effort goes into preparing for it and so, in this unprecedented situation and difficult time, thank our community for its understanding and support. We’re looking forward to coming together later in the year to continue to drive our industry forwards,” he said.

Various countries have reported a rise in the virus over the coming weeks, with more and more business and trade events choosing to postpone until further on in the year as a safety measure.
