Decision taken to postpone Promo Product Expo 2020 to June 2021
JOHANNESBURG – April 14, 2020 – Specialised Exhibitions, a division of the Montgomery Group, exhibition organiser, has taken decisive action following developments in the COVID-19 national state of disaster.
In consultation with the promotional product industry, & in large part due to the very negative effects of Covid19 & the lockdown on the ecosystem & its underlying economy , the organisation has opted to postpone & reschedule its Promo Product Expo 2020 to June 8-9th 2021.
The show will still take place at Sandton Convention Centre, in Johannesburg.
“Measures declared by the President on Sunday the 15th of March included a ‘ban on mass gatherings of more than 100 people’, as well as social distancing, & subsequently has enforced a complete lockdown of South Africa exempting only essential services” says Gary Corin, Managing Director of Specialised Exhibitions. “We fully support this pronouncement & measures taken by Government in instituting a country wide lockdown, the safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, suppliers and visitors – and indeed the industry as a whole – is of paramount importance, thus we have decided to postpone the expo to later in the year.
“Specialised Exhibitions looks forward to hosting a strong showing for the promotional product & its related environments in 2021 & appreciates the input of the industry & support of all stakeholders.”
