SINGAPORE, 23 November 2020 – Reed Exhibitions has announced the new dates for the 7th inter airport Southeast Asia 2021 (IASEA 2021) from the original date of 24-26 February 2021, to 22-24 September 2021. The venue for the event will now be at Marina Bay Sands Singapore to cater to the change.
This decision to reschedule was made following consultations with the founding brand - inter airport Europe - industry partners, exhibitors and visitor groups. Whilst Singapore has restored connectivity to support economic recovery, there are quarantine measures still in place in numerous geographies and time is still needed to allow for the reopening of borders and lifting of travel restrictions.
Yeow Hui Leng, Group Project Director of inter airport Southeast Asia, said, “While we recognize that air travel has been adversely affected by COVID-19, the region continues to be well positioned to benefit from the recovery of the industry. Governments across the region are committed to invest in airport infrastructure and facilities. We believe that there will continue to be strong interest in the region and the need to provide an unrivalled platform for knowledge exchange, sharing of ideas and experiences, leveraging on technology and innovations for a transformative recovery post-COVID.”
Olaf Freier, Portfolio Director of inter airport Europe at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions, added: We support the decision taken by our colleagues in Singapore. The current times are difficult for the events industry as well as the airport industry. The inter airport events will provide the global airport industry with a strong foundation for recovery, with inter airport Southeast Asia to take place in September 2021 and inter airport Europe in November 2021.”
Reed Exhibitions will extend necessary support to our partners and all exhibitors to facilitate a seamless transition to the new event dates. It will remain guided by advice from Singapore’s Ministry of Health and also by industry standards agreed upon by STB and the Singapore Association of Convention & Exhibition Organisers & Suppliers (SACEOS).
