Restrictions that came in to force in March to prevent the spread of COVID-19 continue to effect international travel to Vietnam. Logistical uncertainty has therefore hampered planning for the diverse international contingent of the event.
Contributing to the decision was the amount of time required for sufficient pre-show arrangements, with less than two months remaining before the trade fair was scheduled to open. Exhibitors and visitors also expressed concerns over the ongoing travel bans and the viability of onsite preparations.
The health and safety of participants is our top priority. With the wide backing from supporting local associations and sale partners, we have decided to defer Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City to 30 Jun – 2 Jul 2021 instead of the upcoming show dates in August.
