Q. I have concerns about the outbreak of Coronavirus, where can I find more information?


A. Following the global outbreak of COVID-19, Clarion Events is continuing to monitor the latest public health and government advice one each of our markets around the world and acting in accordance with government and public health advice and World Health Organisation (“WHO”) guidelines. We support the stance taken by the Global Association for the Exhibition Industry, UFI and remain committed to delivering our events in a safe environment.

Q. Are additional safety measures being implemented?

A. There are no attendees to CTX registered from China. We are conscious of current advice relating to travel from at-risk areas, and will therefore be unable to admit any attendee who has been in highly affected areas in the 14 days preceding the show, as specified by local government guidelines in the host nation.
