VIV MEA management team has decided to postpone VIV MEA 2020 to August 31st – September 2nd, 2020 in Abu Dhabi. This discission was made as a result of the situation report #39 from the WHO published on February 28th.
In report #39 the WHO stated the corona risk for the regional level as well as the global level changed from high to very high. This decision to postpone VIV MEA has been taken after careful consideration and in the interest of exhibitors and visitors and, above all, to protect the health of all attendees.
Despite the fact that the UAE remains open for travel and has employed the strictest medical and hygiene protocols the majority (>75%) of the exhibitors agreed that the postponement of the event is the best solution and have therefore confirmed the decision to move their participation.
In light of the above-mentioned VNU Exhibitions Europe|Jaarbeurs as Organizer of VIV MEA 2020 took responsibility and acted on its rights to postpone the event. The participation agreements remain fully effective. “We look forward to welcoming exhibitors & visitors to Abu Dhabi and VIV MEA from August 31st until September 2nd 2020”, according to Heiko M. Stutzinger, director of VIV worldwide.
