TCT Asia postponed in light of coronavirus fears

January 28, 2020

TCT Asia, organised by VNU Rapid News Ltd and originally set to take place in Shanghai, China, February 19–21, 2020, has been postponed due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus in China. In a statement released via the conference website, the TCT Asia Team explained that the decision made to postpone the event was taken after studying and evaluating announcements, guidance and news release by the relevant national departments.

“Thank you for your support and participation over the past five years to help TCT Asia become the leading 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing event in China,” the organisers wrote. “However, at this critical moment we are primarily concerned with your health and safety. Thank you for understanding.”

The rescheduled conference dates are expected to be confirmed as soon as possible following the national holiday period for Chinese New Year, January 24–30.
