SIMTOS 2020 Int’l
Manufacturing Innovation Conference Postponement
SIMTOS secretariat, Korea Machine Tool
Manufacturers’ Association(KOMMA) had announced that SIMTOS 2020 would be held
from March 31st (Tue.) to April 4th (Sat.) at KINTEX as planned
complying with the restrictions of the World Health Organization (WHO) and
Korea Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (KDCD) to prevent the spread
of the virus and host the exhibition.
However, Korean government raised the national
alert for the COVID-19 outbreak to the highest level of ‘serious’ last Feb. 23rd,
as the reported cases of COVID-19 has been growing rapidly. The government strongly
recommended to host any group events. Moreover, exhibitors have more concerns
about participating in SIMTOS 2020 since they have difficulties with
manufacturing and shipping products recently.
Considering health and disinfection of
exhibitors, attendees and official contractors as top priority, KOMMA has
confirmed that SIMTOS 2020 will be postponed to October 5th (Mon.) ~
October 9th (Fri.), 2020 eventually.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude
to all the registrants who applied to SIMTOS 2020 Int’l Manufacturing
Innovation Conference, which was scheduled to be held along with SIMTOS 2020,
and would like to thank you for your kind understanding due to the postponement.
Even though the current circumstances are
against our will and efforts, KOMMA believes that we would overcome the
difficulties. SIMTOS will be coming in October as the leading manufacturing
technology show in Korea to the new leap forward of manufacturing industry.
Further information regarding detailed schedule
of SIMTOS 2020 Int’l Manufacturing Innovation Conference will be announced
