Dear exhibitors, visitors and partners:
As we enter April, the outbreak of the novel Corona Virus is widespread throughout the world, with multiple focal points. As a leading international metropolis, Shanghai has a great responsibility to prevent its further spread.
The 15th International Rail Transit Exhibition, also known as Rail+Metro China 2020, and the China International Railway Conference (CIRC) 2020 are established transportation industry events that enjoy the support of China’s Ministry of Transport, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and of APEC’s Transportation Working Group. They also attract a high degree of participation from overseas rail industry manufacturers and professionals.
Therefore, the organizing committee, in consultation with all partners, has reluctantly decided to postpone this year’s exhibition and conference activities to September 2nd and 3rd 2020, taking place at the same venue. This decision has been taken in direct response to current epidemic prevention and control measures to ensure the health and safety of exhibitors and visitors from home and abroad alike, as well as to preserve the overall impact and effectiveness of the show.
We would like to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the rescheduling of the Rail+Metro China 2020 exhibition and CIRC 2020 conference. Currently, we are continuing with preparations in an orderly manner and we will do our very best to ensure that the show in early September continues to provide a high-quality platform for the development and exchange of the rail transit industry.
These are extraordinary times and the epidemic presents us all with a unique challenge. Every institution, enterprise and organization is facing this crisis together, but even in the face of such adversity there are still gains to be made. Adapting to the crisis through focusing on technological transformation and enhancing services is our top priority, and so we will be launching a series of integrated online to offline services throughout 2020, enabling our exhibitor and buyer networks to benefit from more event resources.
For further information, please look out for future releases on the show’s official website www.railmetrochina.com or follow our WeChat public account “RailMetro“.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, alongside all of our exhibitors, professional visitors, media partners and our wider networks for your support. Together, we will overcome the challenges of these times, and in overcoming the epidemic, we will emerge all the stronger.
