The inaugural edition of Hanoi Wood that was originally expected to happen from April 28 to 30, 2020 has been postponed in the light of the COVID-19 situation. Due to the sudden health emergency the organisers have decided to postpone the exhibition to January 20, 2021 for the safety and well-being of exhibitors, sponsors, delegates, trade attendees and staffs. The trade fair is scheduled at the International Centre of Exhibition (I.C.E), Hanoi.
As the growing uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation develops, the postponement of Hanoi Wood will help the industry’s movers and shakers; from top exhibitors to buyers to be given time to participate.
