We decided to postpone ARABLAB+ originally scheduled to take place earlier in March this year due to the overwhelming concerns of a majority of exhibitors, visitors, principals and agents who normally attend the event……. over their ability to travel to the Show and the Health & Welfare of their staff, due to the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Whilst the international SCIENCE & CHEMICAL sector like all industry has considerably suffered due to temporary closures of global business facilities…………. we do want to make sure that re-scheduled dates for ARABLAB+ provide a highly successful event once again for the regular “ Quality Visitors and Exhibitors” who normally attend this event from over 100+ countries.
Subsequently, we wrote to all exhibitors and visitors groups both globally and in the Middle East advising of possible alternative dates in September 2020…………. the majority considered that to hold the event at that time was not viable due to the continuing uncertainties surrounding COVID-19.
Furthermore, we have been carefully monitoring the effects of the Global Shut Down within the Manufacturing Sector………………..and the uncertainty of travel restrictions in the upcoming months relating to the 100+ countries from which our exhibitors and visitors originate.
In consideration of all the above factors, and the continuing uncertainties, the most important priority should be for the safety of all exhibitors and visitors.
As a result, we can confirm that we will not now be proceeding with possible September dates for the show this year.
