The 17th edition of Paperworld China in Shanghai, originally scheduled for May 12-14, is being postponed. However, a new date has not yet been set.
The postponement comes amid a fresh wave of Covid-19 cases across the country, particularly in Shanghai. A number of exhibition sites have been converted into temporary treatment centers, which, combined with the recent tightening of travel restrictions, has led to uncertainties regarding the scheduled opening of exhibitions and the travel plans of exhibition participants, the organizer said. In coordination with the anti-pandemic measures in Shanghai, it was deemed necessary to postpone the exhibition to a later date.
