Design Shanghai, Asia’s leading international design event, has made the decision to postpone the event until May 2020 due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus. It will now take place on May 26th – 29th at the Shanghai World Expo and Exhibition Convention Center.
Design Shanghai’s organisers have made the decision in consultation with the government and local authorities in China, the fair’s partners, venue and local team, as the safety and welfare of the fair’s customers, exhibitors and staff is their first, and key, priority.
“After careful consideration and advice, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Design Shanghai to ensure the welfare and safety of visitors to our show, our exhibitors and our team. We are grateful to have confirmed new dates in the same venue with the same layout so as not to compromise the quality and success of the fair. We appreciate the show of support that we have received from the design community and our partners during this time.” Zhuo Tan, Director of Design Shanghai
