1 July 2020 – Reed Exhibitions announced the postponement of the 16th edition of Asia Pacific Maritime (APM) rescheduled for 16 – 18 March 2022, due to continuing global restrictions on travel and business activities brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the meantime, APM will be launching a series of online conferences and expo from September 2020 to continue to provide the industry with meaningful ways to connect, stay updated and do business.
The organizer Reed Exhibitions have had many candid conversations with their partners over the past few months about proceeding with Asia Pacific Maritime in September 2020. To date, there is still much uncertainty on travel restrictions worldwide, thus impacting both the exhibitors and visitors of APM who come from all over the world.
After much consideration, and in the best interests of the industry, Reed Exhibitions have taken the difficult decision to postpone the 16th edition of APM and reschedule it to 16 – 18 March 2022. Reed Exhibitions understand that this decision might come as a disappointment to everyone who has been looking forward to attending APM in 2020, which was on track to deliver its biggest show, but the health and safety of the attendees and employees is the organizer’s top priority.
While Reed Exhibitions won’t be able to host APM this year, they look forward to delivering an inspiring digital APM, and also returning stronger with the industry for the next live edition in 2022, at Marina Bay Sands.
