In view of the global spread of novel COVID-19, and after ongoing discussions with our stakeholders, partners and entire management team, we regret to announce the postponement of Equipment & Manufacturing West Africa due to take place from 28 – 30 April 2020 at Landmark Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The decision to postpone comes after the extensive consideration of the developing Coronavirus situation and how it has posed as an unprecedented global challenge. Following guidance from all relevant authorities whose collective concern is the health and wellbeing of the masses, the event has been moved to a yet to be confirmed date, as we closely monitor the situation.
This is a very difficult decision to make as preparations for the event has just reached its final stages and our vendors, partners and staff have worked tirelessly and diligently to create an experience for the industry across the manufacturing and Industrial spectrum; but the safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, visitors, staff, vendors and all parties remain our number one priority and given the increasing number of confirmed cases, travel ban and restrictions, the team has considered it unwise to hold such an international gathering in a confined setting at such a time.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused in making this decision and our thoughts go out to all those directly and indirectly affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
The venue, contracts, floorplan and set up will remain exactly the same and agreements have also been reached with all of our vendors who have committed to a shift of all confirmed services to the later dates which will be announced soon.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions or require further information.
Thank you immensely for understanding at this trying time.
