Coronavirus Derails Italian Amusement Show

The Italian Exhibition Group board of directors, in light of the critical international situation caused by the coronavirus emergency, decided at a Feb. 25 meeting to postpone the shows that were programmed in the month of March: Mir Tech Live Entertainment Expo, Enada Spring International Amusement and Gaming Show, the accompanying Rimini Amusement Show and the spring edition of Abilmente Vicenza Creative Idea Show.

The first three were scheduled to be held at Rimini Expo Centre, while Abilmente was set to run at Vicenza Expo Centre.

The new dates have already been set in consideration of the market needs of the three shows and in accordance with the international events. Enada Primavera, together with Rimini Amusement Show, will be re-scheduled to run April 21-22. Abilmente Vicenza will be postponed until May 21-24. The new dates for MIR TECH will be announced shortly after further consultation with the sector’s economic and associative references, and also in consideration of the international calendars.

IEG has taken this decision—which involves extraordinarily complex organization—in total responsibility, in respect of the complicated international scenario and with the conviction that its various public—exhibitors, buyers, visitors and media—will fully understand.

Similarly, on the congress front, IEG is already in talks with the organizers of the congresses programmed for March in Rimini and Vicenza in order to find opportunities to re-protect the events during the coming months.

Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), listed on the Milan Stock Exchange organized and managed by Borsa Italiana, is the Italian leader in the organization of trade expos and one of the main players in Europe in the expo and conference sector, with its venues in Rimini and Vicenza. The IEG Group stands out for the organization of events in five categories: Food & Beverage; Jewellery & Fashion; Tourism, Hospitality & Lifestyle; Wellness, Sports and Leisure; Green & Technology. In 2018, IEG held an overall total of 53 exhibitions organized or hosted and 181 conferences events in its Rimini and Vicenza expo and conference venues. For more info, visit www.iegexpo.it
