The sixth edition of TCT Asia, which took place in Shanghai, China, July 8–10, 2020, has been reported a success despite the challenges of coronavirus (COVID-19). Organised by VNU Rapid News Ltd, the event featured 220 exhibitors and welcomed 8,469 visitors. 

According to the organisers, despite overseas travel restrictions, this year’s edition of TCT Asia saw the total number of professional visitors increase by 2.12% compared to 2019. 

“We are delighted that TCT Asia played its part early in the post-COVID-19 resurgence,” stated Duncan Wood, chairman of VNU Rapid News Co. Ltd. “It sends an important message to the wider exhibition industry and to the market that we serve.”

“Understandably international participation was lower this year, but domestic attendance was up, and China has an ever-growing range of machine manufacturers emerging with world-class technology, which was all on show, cementing TCT Asia as the home of industrial Additive Manufacturing in China,” he continued.

“Looking ahead to 2021 we will move to a new venue at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre, with a new timeline,” he added.  TCT Asia 2021 will take place at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre, Shanghai, China, from May 26–28, 2021.
