Due to the global escalation of COVID-19, Reed Exhibitions has announced that the next edition of Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX), World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) and the Passenger Experience Conference (PEC) will now take place from 12-15 April 2021.
“Our thoughts are with all those affected by this crisis,” said Katie Murphy, portfolio director at Reed Exhibitions. “After closely monitoring the evolving situation and having listened to our customers and carefully considered the options available to us, we are postponing AIX, WTCE and PEC to April 2021.
“We are in unprecedented times and we’re witnessing first-hand the challenging impact of COVID-19 on airlines and the wider industry, from both a professional and personal perspective. Initially, we were optimistic that our events would run later this year, however, in light of the ongoing uncertainty in the industry and the immense pressure our customers are experiencing, we have concluded that the best option is to postpone AIX, WTCE and PEC until 2021.
“We understand how important it is for the industry to stay connected during this time. While we are disappointed we can’t meet face-to-face this year, we are working with our partners to keep the AIX, WTCE and PEC community connected over the coming months. Details will be announced shortly.
“We once again thank all of our exhibitors, visitors and partners for their patience and support, and we look forward to returning to Hamburg next year.”
