At a meeting held yesterday, Tuesday, February 25, the Italian Exhibition Group S.p.A. Board of Directors, in light of the critical international situation caused by the Coronavirus COVID-19 emergency, has decided to postpone the shows that were programmed in the coming month of March. An event re-protection plan, in accordance with the organizers, has also been activated regarding congresses
The shows being postponed are: MIR TECH Live Entertainment Expo, ENADA SPRING the International Amusement and Gaming Show, the accompanying RIMINI AMUSEMENT SHOW and the spring edition of ABILMENTE VICENZA the Creative Idea Show. The first three were scheduled to be held at Rimini Expo Centre, while ABILMENTE was set to run at Vicenza Expo Centre.
The new dates have already been set in consideration of the market needs of the three shows and in accordance with the international events. ENADA PRIMAVERA, together with RIMINI AMUSEMENT SHOW, will be re-scheduled to run from 21st to 23rd April 2020. ABILMENTE VICENZA will be postponed until 21st to 24th May 2020.
