ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2019 will be held from September 4 to 6, 2019 at AsiaWorld-Expo Hong Kong, as planned. This decision has been made after the organisers of the leading continental trade show for Asia's fresh produce business conducted an opinion poll among exhibitors with a representative majority of exhibitors voting for the event to take place as scheduled. "We want to thank our exhibitors for providing us with their opinions and feedback that helped us making this truly tough decision." says Wilfried Wollbold, commercial director of ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA. "We remain confident that we can hold a fruitful ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA even though the situation in Hong Kong continues to be challenging and developments are not easy to foresee." The forecast visitor attendance based on pre-show sales and redeemed vouchers indicates an attendance level of 80 per cent of the 2018 show. Furthermore, 15 per cent of visitors purchase tickets onsite, so a good visitor turnout can be expected. "We will do everything we can to reassure visitors in the two weeks before ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA opens its doors and are asking our exhibitors to support us with this objective by reaching out to their clients." The event is organised by Global Produce Events GmbH (GPE). GPE is a joint venture company owned by Messe Berlin GmbH, organisers of FRUIT LOGISTICA, and Fruitnet Ltd.
