Informa Markets has announced the launch of online versions of “ASEAN Sustainable Energy Week”, “Pumps & Valves Asia” and “Thai Water Expo” over 14-16 October. The announcement follows the postponement of this year’s in-person events, originally scheduled for 14-16 October, 2021, until 14-16 September 2022.
Mr. Sanchai Noombunnam, Deputy Managing Director of Informa Markets in Thailand explained that although the spread of COVID-19 has begun to show signs of a decrease in the number of infected cases, the government maintains various measures to control the situation and ensure a sustainable recovery.
“Informa Markets, as the co-organiser of three major events, has agreed to postpone the physical event out of concern for the safety of all participants as well as to prepare for the actual event in 2022,” he said.
In the meantime, the organiser continues to commit to the support of entrepreneurs in the energy, environment with ASEAN Sustainable Energy Week and Pumps & Valves Asia Virtual Edition (ASEW & PVA Virtual Edition). ASEW & PVA Virtual Edition will be full of interesting activities, including webinars hosted by experts from the energy, environment and innovation spaces.
There will also be networking activities to help build relationships between manufacturers, entrepreneurs and buyers through digital showrooms, via Virtual Marketplace, to pave the way for visitors to meet and buy products, solutions, and services on the online platform. An online meeting will also be prepared with a “pre-match service” and a business matching programme for entrepreneurs and foreign buyers.
“Informa Markets, as a leading organiser of world-class exhibitions, events, and business negotiation activities, has developed an event platform that can respond to rapid changes to accommodate the needs of the industry in all dimensions. The ASEW & PVA Virtual Edition event is expected to attract more than 4,000 visitors from across the ASEAN region. It will help create business opportunities and prepare entrepreneurs in the energy industry, environment, and related industries for the rising demand in the market following the easing situations in the future,” Mr. Sanchai concluded.
