Laser World of Photonics China to go ahead in July, organisers confirm

Share this on social media:

Laser World of Photonics China, including the machine vision technology and application conference, is to go ahead from 3 to 5 July in Shanghai, the show organisers have confirmed.

China was the first country to impose lockdown restrictions, causing Laser World of Photonics to be postponed from March until July.

Messe Munich has confirmed that Electronica China, Productronica China and Laser World of Photonics China will be held from 3 to 5 July, after communication with exhibitors, visitors, partners and venue counterparts.

On 8 May, the Chinese government issued the guidelines of preventing and controlling the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). On 9 May, the emergency response level of major public health emergencies in Shanghai was adjusted to level 3.

'With the controlling of the epidemic in China, work resumption is taking place across the country and the national economy is believed to be recovered in a rapid and strong pace,' Laser World of Photonics organisers said in a statement. 'The accelerated deployment of 5G, new infrastructure and intelligent manufacturing will promote the overall recovery of the electronics and photonics industries in China. The end market is still full of opportunities and the industry as a whole is expected to rebound in the second quarter or the second half of the year.'

The organisers stated that 'the health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and partners will continue to be top priority. The relevant policies and regulations will strictly be followed during the shows, the various prevention and controlling security measures will be effectively implemented to ensure the safety and orderliness of the exhibition.'

The statement didn't make explicit what the measures are that will be taken for visitors and exhibitors.
