HOFEX 2003 re-scheduled for July. (Trade News).

HOFEX 2003, the 10th Asian International Exhibition of Hospitality Equipment, Supplies and Technology, Food and Drink, has been re-scheduled to run from July 15-18, 2003, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, instead of the previously published dates of May 6-9.

This decision has been made in response to the current serious health concerns in Hong Kong and the Asian region, attributable to the pneumonia virus known as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), and following the numerous travel advisories from many governments, the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control. It is also taken after considerable consultation with both exhibitor and visitor groups together with the relevant industry and medical authorities in Hong Kong.

"Our primary objective in re-scheduling HOFEX 2003 is to safeguard the well-being of our exhibitors and visitors, as well as to ensure the continuing success of the show," said Daniel Cheung, general manager of Hong Kong Exhibition Services Ltd. Cheung went on to say, "All exhibitor and visitor registrations that have already been made are valid for the new dates in July."
