IAAPA Expo Asia 2021 has a new date and a new location, with the event now set to take place in Shanghai, China, on August 10-13, 2021.

Originally scheduled for Macao, China, in June, the show has now been moved to the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

The relocation and date change, said IAAPA, were in response to the ongoing global pandemic and the “growing optimism for increased recovery as the year progresses.”

The expo, which took place virtually in 2020, will start with a full day of conferencing on August 10, followed by three days of programming featuring educational programmes and special events as well as the trade show floor.

“Given the continued uncertainties impacting travel – international and domestic – we believe the relocation and event date change will provide more opportunity for exhibitors and attendees to participate,” said Hal McEvoy, IAAPA’s president and CEO.

“While it’s hard to believe we’re still working through effects of the global pandemic, we’re encouraged by news that the initial vaccines are being administered in locations around the world.

“We know it's going to take time and the phases of recovery will vary by region, but we are optimistic about the outlook for our industry.

“During IAAPA Expo Asia we will follow safety guidelines and operational procedures recommended by global and health authorities, and event industry experts. We look forward to returning to Shanghai for IAAPA Expo Asia, and once again bringing the global attractions industry together."
