Omicron forces organisers to cancel or postpone events globally

Events world over are getting deferred or cancelled, India is no exception.

The Gujarat government has decided to postpone its yearly flagship event, the Vibrant Gujarat Summit which was scheduled from January 10-12 at Gandhinagar. In the wake of rising cases of COVID-19, “Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel has taken a decision to postpone the summit after a comprehensive review of the emerging situation,” as per the government release.

The organisers of IMEX Frankfurt announced the cancellation of the event. Ray Bloom, Chairman, IMEX Group, said,  “First is the uncertainty caused by the fact that the German health minister has recently called for the ban on events with over 1,000 people which some German states have already endorsed, including the state of Hesse. This announcement makes the probability of factors outside our control forcing us to cancel the show at the last minute.” 

Informa Markets in India also postponed SATTE 2022, their major event in India. A message from the organisations that expressed their concern for visitors' health said, “We at Informa Markets in India have decided to postpone SATTE 2022 and the exhibition would now be held from May 18-20, 2022, at India Expo Mart, Noida.”
