Whereas many exhibitions and other in-person events are being cancelled or postponed in many other countries, business has gotten back on track again in China since the country has the virus under control.
Many companies continue to do business as usual again and large exhibitions are being organised again in China. Although, due to the travel restrictions, many of our clients cannot travel to China. Therefore, we seek to play an important role for our clients with their operations in China. In the past few months, we have noticed that the demand for our support has increased since life in China has started to become normal again. In the month April, our Shanghai Office has represented our clients at several large roadshows and exhibitions in China.
The Hortiflorexpo IPM 2021 was organised in Shanghai which is considered as the largest and most important specialised horticultural fair in China. This exhibition was very well attended where our Shanghai Office represented our clients DanDutcH ApS and Debets Schalke Turn-key greenhouse projects at the Dutch pavilion of the Hortiflorexpo IPM.
