New COVID-19 clusters in Vietnam, with a concern for the health of the exhibitors and stakeholders, have led to the postponement of VietnamWood 2021 to the coming year.
Initially held from 20 to 23 October 2021, the leading regional trade show in the woodworking industry is now postponed to 18 to 21 October 2022 at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC).
According to the latest statistics (August 2021), local vaccination in Vietnam has yet to reach 10% of the total population. The current state of mass gatherings is also still on ban, with no indication of when it will be lifted, and the current level of restrictions and quarantine for individuals visiting Vietnam will severely affect international exhibitors. Visitors have also expressed concern that the event will not be as good with fewer exhibitions and features.
Although the trade show is postponed, leading up to the new show date, a series of pre-show digital event are on their way as an important element for staying in touch with customers, and to bridge the gap until VietnamWood 2022.
