NETHERLANDS: The coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt the international exhibition calendar, this time forcing the postponement of the Dutch HVACR Show, VSK 2022, to dates in May.
Originally scheduled to be held at the Jaarbeurs Utrecht next month, the show has now been moved to 17 to 20 May 2022.
Last week it was announced that the Italian show, Mostra Convegno MCE, would be moving to dates in June due to ongoing concerns over the coronavirus.
Meanwhile, the AHR Expo in Las Vegas at the end of this month still goes ahead, as does the HVAC&R Japan 2022 show in Tokyo at the beginning of February.
The decision to postpone VSK was said to have been taken in consultation with the industry. It was felt that at the moment there are too many uncertainties for exhibitors and visitors about the duration of the coronavirus measures by the Dutch government and their impact on the fair. The fair was due to take place from 8 to 11 February.
