Flower Expo China postponed due to COVID-19 virus

Since the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia (NCP), Guangdong Grandeur International Exhibition Group (organizer of Flower Expo China) has been actively engaged in the war against the disease by keeping a close watch on the rapidly evolving situation.

"The control and prevention of the epidemic is not only the responsibility of China, but also of the whole international society", according to the organization. "To better join hands with the global community to combat the virus and give international insiders a better understanding of the situation, we have drawn together the latest updates in China and Guangdong Province."

Nationwide signs of slowdown in spread of NCP
At the onset of the NCP outbreak, China has taken a series of measures to prevent the virus from spreading to the whole country, including suspending all passenger traffic from and to Hubei, banning massive gathering nationwide, advising citizens to undergo self-quarantine, educating the public on effective disease prevention via nationwide media, extending the Chinese New Year holiday to delay the resumption of business, etc.

Although Guangdong is miles apart from the epicenter of the outbreak, it has tightened measures to battle the novel coronavirus epidemic, including demanding all citizens to wear masks in public places, checking everyone’s temperature when entering public places or taking public transport, mandating frequent ventilation and disinfection in public places, etc. People coming back from Hubei Province, as well as those they have contacted will be quarantined for 14 days in designated hotels, for whom free necessities and health service are available.

With the Spring Festival coming to an end, local governments in Guangdong have launched corresponding measures to support enterprises to resume work, such as distributing masks to enterprises, requiring workers to wear masks in the workplace, and registering and measuring temperature of those who enter the office park.

Grandeur prevention work
Grandeur International Exhibition Group has postponed exhibitions initially held in February and March, as a response to national epidemic prevention work.

Moreover, during the Spring Festival, the company's staff has already self-quarantined and worked at home, and reported their health condition everyday. After resuming work on February 10th, the whole staff will receive temperature checks 3 times a day, and the company has adjusted the work hours to avoid the rush hour.

Show postponed
Due to the impact of the 2019-CoV, the 2020 China International Floriculture & Horticulture Trade Fair (Flower Expo China) will be rescheduled for a new date and venue.
The event was originally slated for March 16th-18th, 2020 at Guangzhou International Sourcing Center, and is now moved to May 11th-13th, 2020 at Hall 3 - Hall 4 at Guangzhou Poly World Trade Center Expo.
