Breakbulk Asia will take place in Shanghai from August 3-4 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, as China’s State Council updates its guidelines to allow conferences and exhibitions to resume from July 1.

Sarah Gu, event director for Breakbulk Asia, said the event would follow all Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to protect exhibitors and visitors.

Tickets can still be purchased at the super-early rate until May 29 using the code BreakbulkONEAsia.

“There is no better time to join with the project cargo and breakbulk industry to plan for new jobs in the months ahead,” Gu said. “China was the first to feel the effects of the pandemic, but it is also the first to begin the steps to recovery.”

Gu said the conference programme would focus on finding opportunities not only in China, but throughout Asia and the world.
