NürnbergMesse Brasil announces the postponement of FCE Pharma, FCE Cosmetique, Glass South America and R+T South America events due to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) in Brazil. After many market analyses, conversations with the main associations and industry representatives, daily monitoring of the virus evolution and new recommendations from the responsible authorities, we made the difficult decision to postpone the events to the second half of 2020.
We believe that this was the most prudent decision, aiming at the integrity, safety and health of our visitors, exhibitors and employees. Another relevant factor for this decision was to maintain the value proposition of the events, which are a business and networking platform. In an uncertain scenario, maintaining the date of June would be risky and irresponsible.
We would also like to highlight our commitment to the market and the industry. We have been working tirelessly during these last few days to maintain these important exhibitions for the industry still in 2020. Amidst a scenario where all first semester events are being postponed, this was the only opportunity we achieved after much effort.
Aware that the market needs to keep increase results, the events present themselves, especially at this time, as the most efficient platform to bring all customers together in one place and boost the economy of these industries. We thank you very much for your understanding and support. Now, more than ever, it is a time for unity to build an even more resilient market.
