Date changes decided by the Board of Directors: the timing of set-up and logistic operations for
these events are incompatible with national and regional dispositions for Covid-19
Verona, 26 February 2020 – The Board of Directors of Veronafiere SpA met today and acknowledged
the impossibility of ensure proper timing for set-up, dismantling and logistics operations for
upcoming trade fair events. In relation to the requirements of the ordinance issued by the Ministry
of Health and the Veneto Region concerning Covid-19, it was decided to postpone the events
scheduled for March and early April 2020.
Samoter, the international construction machinery exhibition, scheduled 21-25 March will now be
held 16-20 May 2020. The two events held in conjunction with Samoter will also share the same
date: Asphaltica, the road infrastructure event, and LetExpo, the sustainable logistics trade fair.
There is also a change of date for the first edition of B/Open, the certified organic food and natural
self-care event, which moves from 1-3 April 2020 to 22-24 June 2020.
The measures implemented by Veronafiere join the other changes to the calendar announced
yesterday which affect upcoming events in March: Model Expo Italy and Elettroexpo were
postponed to 21-22 November 2020 and Innovabiomed is now scheduled for 15-16 June 2020
