FAQ on Event Announcement (Updated on April 02, 2020)

------

General

1. Why have we decided to reschedule the 2020 event to July 27-30, 2020?

Since February 24, the emergency response level of major public health emergencies in Guangdong province has been downgraded from first level to second level. With proper control, the Chinese government is also actively promoting the resumption of work and production.

The safety and well being of all our exhibitors, visitors, and industry partners remain of top priority to us. After a long and careful deliberation with all organizing bodies, taking industry cycles and capacities into account, we have decided to reschedule CIFM/interzum guangzhou to 27–30 July 2020. The exhibition will still be held alongside the China International Furniture Fair (Office Show), also known as CIFF (Office Show). Comprising two segments, the first installation of CIFF, featuring home furniture, will take place about a week earlier from July 18-21.

2. Will it be safe to travel to China in July?

The China government is making the containment of the spread of COVID-19 their top priority and has implemented a slew of measures to control the situation.

Currently, the spread of the epidemic has been basically curbed. At the same time, prevention and control is improving with general production and daily life gradually being restored. On April 02, fewer than 3,000 confirmed coronavirus cases were found in mainland China, and fewer than 1,000 cases were confirmed outside Hubei province. To strictly prevent the spread of the disease imported from abroad, Guangdong province has officially announced the latest prevention and control measures for the classification and treatment of inbound tourists to Guangdong on March 16, with the goal of resumption of work and production in the province and safeguarding the health and safety of the people to the greatest extent.

While the situation is still unpredictable, please be assured that the safety of our participants is our top priority and we will continue to closely monitor the latest developments. In addition, we are working closely with the venue to prepare precautionary measures as recommended by the local governing bodies to ensure that all participants are safe.

3. How do I get the latest updates on the COVID-19 situation in China?

The Chinese Government is taking this very seriously and has an active surveillance and screening system for disease control, thanks to its experience in dealing with medical conditions such as SARS, MERS, avian flu and others. The latest advisories are available and published by the National Health Commission of China.
