Two editions of Watch & Jewellery Middle East Show merged

SHARJAH, March 15, 2020

The Expo Centre Sharjah has announced that it is merging the 48th and 49th editions of the Watch & Jewellery Middle East Show and the event will now take place by the end of September 2020.
 
The move has been taken as part of the precautionary measures in light of the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). 
 
“The 48th edition was scheduled to take place from March 25 to 29 but to protect the safety of all employees and visitors, we decided to combine this edition with the next one and now the event will be organised by end of September 2020,” the centre said.
 
The board of directors of Expo Centre Sharjah stressed that it is closely monitoring global developments concerning Covid-19 and is coordinating with all strategic partners to decide whether to hold the upcoming events or not. The safety of all participating delegations and visitors are a top priority, the board added.
 
“The decision to merge the two editions is a precautionary and strategic measure. We will spare no effort to work with all concerned authorities in the UAE to reduce the spread of the coronavirus,” it underlined. 
 
The board underlined that it made the decision after taking into account the difficulty of a wide segment of participants to travel due to the current circumstances.
 
“Our events are flexible and our teams are well-trained to deal with any postponement or rescheduling of events, owning to their 50-year experience. They are able to adapt to major global developments on the commercial, financial and health levels”, it emphasised. – TradeArabia News Service
