SIAL China 2020 To Be Postponed to September 28th – 30th, 2020 At National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai)

Dear SIAL China Community,

In view of the global spread of the coronavirus and after intensive consultation and communication with exhibitors and partners, we have decided to postpone SIAL China 2020 to September 28th – 30th, 2020 at National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) (NECC).

The serious international concerns related to the pandemic of novel coronavirus has dictated that health and safety of exhibitors and visitors must be taken as priority and demanded an updating analysis of the current situation. Furthermore, in most cities like Beijing and Shanghai in China, upgraded restrictions will definitely affect the travel of our international participants in May as all tourists travelled from other countries 14 days prior to their arrival must undergo a 14-day quarantine at home or in a designated place. Therefore, as the organizer of SIAL China, we have decided to postpone the SIAL China 2020 to September and we are glad this decision is supported by both international and domestic exhibitors and partners.

Currently all our work, preparation and promotion for SIAL China 2020 has adapted to the new exhibition date and venue. We will work closely with the venue and all partners in the coming months to make sure SIAL China 2020 could smoothly open in September. At this moment we invite all our international exhibitors, visitors and partners to follow up the most updated news of SIAL China 2020 through our official website and social media accounts. For more information, free visitor registration and the pre-cautions will be taken onsite, please visit

SIAL China thank you for your understanding and support. We sincerely hope to welcome all of you to SIAL China 2020 in September 28th-30th at NECC.
