Frequently asked questions about Maintenance

26/03/2020

In light of the international outbreak and spread of COVID-19, the 2019 Coronavirus, Easyfairs is closely following and monitoring the evolution of the situation, taking into account all advices and recommendations from the World Health Organization as well as all advices and recommendations of local health organisations and governments. Given the unforeseeable, unavoidable, unprecedented and global scope of the Coronavirus, the organisation of events is affected due to the potential for serious public health consequences in case of amplification and spread of infectious diseases during these events.

The main priority of Easyfairs in its continuous and careful assessment of the evolution of the situation is the well-being, health and safety of its employees, visitors and exhibitors, as well as all stakeholders involved in its activities.

As it seemed that the situation in Belgium was becoming rather more critical, the Belgian federal authorities decided on 10 March 2020 to take drastic measures by recommending to prohibit mass events bringing together more than 1,000 persons in closed areas.

This evolution, totally beyond Easyfairs’ control, clearly lead to the conclusion that Pumps & Valves and Maintenance of 25 and 26 March in Antwerp Expo, couldn’t be organised and therefore needed to be cancelled.

2 weeks ago we started a phone survey among our exhibitors and partners, suggesting moving this edition of Pumps & Valves and Maintenance to 17 and 18 June 2020 due to force majeure.

However, because of the rapidly-changing circumstances and new measures with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are afraid that these dates no longer offer a suitable alternative either. In consultation with our strategic partners, we have therefore decided to postpone Pumps & Valves and Maintenance to Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 October 2020.
