2020 Shenzhen China Watch and Clock Fair cancelled

Post by AlbertaTime » March 2nd 2020, 4:15am

I was just informed:

Information just received, as received:

"About 2020 China (Shenzhen) International Horologe Exhibition

Notice of suspension

Dear Exhibitors, Buyers and Consumers,
The 31st China (Shenzhen) International Horological and Watch Fair (Shenzhen Watch and Clock Fair), originally scheduled for June 20-23, 2020, has been suspended.

From the Order Fair and the Trade Fair to the UFI International Exhibition, the exhibition has experienced the trough of SARS and reached the peak of the combination of the two exhibitions in thirty years.

She records the endless life of an industry, but also carved the struggle for excellence in the industry, organizers, exhibitors, buyers and all those who love clocks condensed into a generation of golden years.

The Xinguan Pneumonia epidemic has changed the normal work pattern in 2020, and the Shenzhen Watch & Clock Fair also made the above decision according to the actual environment.
Due to exhibition and venue reasons, Shenzhen Watch & Clock Fair will not rule out restarting in 2021.

The industry will have ample time and space to make strategic adjustments to recuperate and recharge. The organizers will also deeply summarize the gains and losses of the previous phase, fully listen to and understand the needs of domestic and foreign customers, as one of the important industry exhibitions in the international market, and further enhance the influence.

Thank you again for your support and love for Shenzhen Watch Fair.

I wish the industry colleagues health, and strive to create brilliant!

Co-organizers:
China Watch Association Watch Industry Association
Shenzhen Jingpin Exhibition Culture Communication Co., Ltd.

"关于2020年中国(深圳)国际钟表展

暂停举办的通知

敬告尊敬的参展商、买家和广大消费者:

原定于2020年6月20-23日举办的第31届中国(深圳)国际钟表展(简称深圳钟表展)决定暂停举办。

深圳钟表展于1990-2019年连续举办了30届,与中国钟表业在市场经济阶段崛起和以深圳为龙头的粤港澳大湾区钟表业的蓬勃发展相伴而生。从订货会、展销会到中字头的(UFI)国际展,三十年间,展会经历过SARS那样的低谷,也升达至两展合一的高峰;她记录了一个产业的生生不息,也刻下了业界追求卓越的奋斗,组织者、参展商、买家和所有热爱“钟表”的人们凝聚成了一代人的黄金色岁月。新冠肺炎疫情改变了2020年的常态工作形式,深圳钟表展也根据现实环境做出以上决定。

由于展期及场地原因,深圳钟表展将不排除会重启于2021年。业界将会有充足的时间和空间做战略调整,休养生息,养精蓄锐。主承办单位也将深度总结上一阶段工作得失,充分听取和理解国内外业界客户的需求,作为国际市场的重要行业展会之一,更进一步提升影响力。

再次感谢大家对深圳钟表展的支持与厚爱。

祝业界同仁健康,励精图治再创辉煌!

联合主办单位:

中国钟表协会 深圳市钟表行业协会

深圳市晶品会展文化传播有限公司

Will the current goings on affect your plans? Did you have a trip planned this year?
I have to admit I would not travel there at this time. Or any other time. I mean, I would love to see it, but I'm the kind of asshole that goes to China and never comes back other than in a political prisoner exchange not that the US would be in any hurry to get my ass back.

I also have to admit that, regardless of their level of personal responsibility, I will not travel isles in stores on which some hunched over sick-o, or multiples are hacking up a lung, projectile sneezing, sneezing, wretching, coughing, blowing their nose, their spouse, or etc., so take my China policy accordingly. No travelogues this year would stink on ice though- perhaps we could pitch in on a case of N-95 breather masks and a waterproof (therefore germ proof) camera housing.

To Foggy: Yup, I had planned on May/June--now I hope for September :-( . If daily mask wearing is still in play everywhere, I'll pass till next year and hope for the best. No need to travel for that discomfort--I might end up doing that at home.

T 3F: I'm solidly with Hawk's tribe, and I was thinking the first time I went to China that I also would be "the kind of asshole that goes to China and never comes back other than in a political prisoner exchange" but it ain't exactly like that, there. I discovered I bristle there, and I bristle here--it's just about different things.

That said, I have COPD, so for a good while now, I also "will not travel isles in stores on which some hunched over sick-o, or multiples are hacking up a lung, projectile sneezing, sneezing, wretching, coughing, blowing their nose, their spouse." I move away if someone sneezes--and I often pointedly say something if folks don't cover their cough/sneeze, or come to work sniffling and hacking.

So I get that.

Re: "No travelogues this year would stink on ice though"...

No shit. There's zero I like about this situation. I'm homesick as hell because, for all its many faults, I love travelling in China and I love my friends there, and I hate this.

Damn, Ron. Sorry about delaying the trip, SKYPE and whatnot just ain't being there.

I was at Target picking up some crap on sale in the circular and was headed down the paper goods isle on the grocery side of the store just in time to see a guy about midway, hunched over his cart heaving up a lung one loose, productive spasm after another unleashed from an uncovered mouth onto his cart full of food and whatnot. I passed on paper towel. I think the lady who stopped short right behind me took her son and left the store.

This particular guy wound up OD'ed in a stall in the "Family Restroom". IV opioid antitussive of some sort, no doubt.. It is a commonplace occurrence here; there are sharps disposal units on the walls in the restrooms of most grocery stores and gas stations. Resources are slowly improving but the substance abuse situation here is intense. So I'm guessing that the gentleman's cart full of groceries and whatnot didn't get taken with in the ambulance and that the stuff likely got restocked.

Hell of a world we've made for ourselves.
