The following is a reprint of an email received by our Editorial department Monday morning, Apr. 6.
As a valued exhibitor/visitor of Hong Kong Coin Show, you are at the heart of our team. In the hope of the alleviation of the coronavirus situation, we had postponed the event till May, meanwhile closely monitoring the situation as it evolved. At this stage, the effects of coronavirus are evident across the world, with burgeoning travel restrictions.
As per the announcement of Hong Kong SAR government on March 17, 2020, compulsory quarantine is required to people arriving in Hong Kong who have been to all overseas countries in the past 14 days. We also received a letter from the Centre for Health Protection that organizers should cancel or defer mass events until the pandemic is settled. Consequently, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel the May show. It is our full intention to host our August Show, currently scheduled for Aug. 21-23, 2020. We will keep you informed of any new developments of the legal measures as we receive them.
The team wishes that you and your family stay well and take very good care. We look forward to having travel return to normal and welcoming you again in our next show.
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments. We would love to hear from you.
Hong Kong Coin Show Team
Please take very good care and hope you stay healthy and safe!
Thank you very much.
