Intersec Saudi Arabia postponed

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

ACE Group and Messe Frankfurt, the organisers of the new Intersec Saudi Arabia have announced that the event due to take place in Riyadh this month has now been postponed until September 2020 due to the fears around the spread of the Covid 19 virus. 

An email from the Intersec Saudi Arabia team has been circulated saying, " In response to the escalating situation regarding the Covid-19 virus, ACE Group and Messe Frankfurt Middle East have decided to postpone Intersec Saudi Arabia 2020. The event will now take place from 1 - 3 September 2020 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre."

According to the announcement, the postponement has come about following concerns from all parties involved including, Intersec Saudi Arabia exhibitors, speakers, and visitors around recent developments of Covid-19 in Saudi, including visa issuing and travel restrictions that would limit the ability of many stakeholders to attend the show.

The statement reads, "ACE Group and Messe Frankfurt Middle East consulted key stakeholders on whether to hold Intersec Saudi Arabia in March or postpone to a later date, with the vast majority backing the decision to move the exhibition to September 2020.

Our first priority is to the health and well-being of our exhibitors and visitors. We remain committed to delivering a standout exhibition in September 2020, and look forward to welcoming everyone then."

After three years of its successful run in the city of Jeddah, the organisers received an overwhelming response from launch partners, exhibitors and visitors that indicated the industry’s need for a larger fourth edition in Saudi Arabia. And as a result, the fourth Intersec Saudi Arabia 2020 will take place for the first time at this brand new show location - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
