After consulting with many brands and exhibitors about the coronavirus outbreak, the organisers of the NE Materials Show, scheduled to be held in Boston, U.S., on February 5 – 6, decided to cancel the event. “In light of recent information from brands and exhibitors, collectively we have made this difficult but right decision. Some government agencies have advised that travellers avoid non-essential travel to and from China in order to contain the virus”, said the organisers. “American Events is committed to the safety of our clients and partners and will continue to take measured steps to mitigate impacts. We apologise for any inconvenience and will share updates once we are able to reschedule this event.”

The NW Materials Show, to be held February 12 – 13 in Portland, U.S. state of Oregon, has also been postponed.
