OS+H Asia 2020 postponed to December

The 12th edition of Occupational Safety and Health Exhibition for Asia (OS+H Asia) has been postponed to the end of the year and will take place from 9 to 11 December 2020. The show was originally scheduled for 26-28 August.

As the region’s leading exhibition focusing on workplace safety and health, OS+H Asia 2020 will now be held alongside Medical Fair Asia at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

“In light of the evolving Covid-19 situation surrounding border restrictions and heightened social distancing measures, and in consultation with industry partners, we have taken the decision to postpone OS+H Asia 2020 to December this year,” said Gernot Ringling, managing director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia.

“Delivering an exhibition that optimises participants’ investment in time and resources is one of our top priorities, so we anticipate that the December dates will maximise participation and engagement from regional and international attendees.”

Mr Ringling added, “We are optimistic that the co-location of OS+H Asia with Medical Fair Asia - representing the synergistic portfolios of occupational safety, security and healthcare - will come at a time when businesses will be on the lookout for sourcing and networking platforms, as well as heightened industry demand for solutions as companies look to adapt workplaces and protect employees for the future.

“We would like to thank all OS+H Asia partners, exhibitors, and registered visitors from around the region for their continued support and look forward to welcoming them in December.”

The last edition of OS+H Asia took place in 2018 at Suntec Singapore, attracting more than 5,000 trade visitors from 36 countries - a 15% increase over the 2016 edition. The show also welcomed more than 40 visiting delegations and groups representing various sectors such as building and construction, offshore marine, electrical and electronics, engineering services, and warehousing and logistics.

OS+H Asia is held in Singapore biennially, and was inaugurated in 1998. The exhibition is driven by A+A, the world’s leading trade fair for all aspects of safety, security and health at work, organised by Messe Düsseldorf in Germany.

The OS+H Asia team said it will be in touch with all confirmed exhibitors and participants regarding event logistics and planning for the 2020 edition.
