MANILA: The 4th Asian Defense, Security and Crisis Management Exhibition & Conference will be held next year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show organisers APAC Expo announced today.
“In view of the Covid-19 situation globally, we would like to announce that ADAS 2020 which is originally scheduled on 23 to 25 September this year will be rescheduled to 5 to 7 May 2021, “ APAC Expo said in a July 6 statement. The Event will continue to be held at the World Trade Center Metro Manila and will now be renamed as ADAS 2021.
“This decision was not an easy one for us to take in view of the continued strong support we have been receiving from all our exhibitors and supporters for the Event scheduled this September, which we greatly appreciated,” it said.
“We have been monitoring the unprecedented global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and have been consulting closely with the Philippine’s Department of National Defense in order to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all our exhibitors, partners, supporters, visitors and all our stakeholders, and have concluded that holding the Event this September has become untenable. “We assure all our exhibitors, supporters, partners and stakeholders that we will spare no effort and continue to work unrelentingly to make ADAS 2021 another great success,” the statement said. shp/mgm
