    Singapore Airshow 2020 will proceed as planned from 11 – 16 February 2020, at the Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC). In view of the evolving 2019 novel coronavirus situation, Experia Events will introduce enhanced precautionary measures to safeguard the well-being and safety of all attendees.

    Singapore remains at the DORSCON (Disease Outbreak Response System Condition) yellow level. In addition to the current measures called out for at this level - enhanced cleaning and refuse management to maintain high standards of hygiene and cleanliness, availing hand sanitisers to attendees and a team of doctors and medics to attend to visitors who are feeling unwell - Experia Events will implement additional temperature screening at access points at Singapore Expo and CEC.

    The health and well-being of our attendees is of utmost priority. Alongside these additional measures, Experia Events remains ready and prepared to implement further enhanced measures as required by the authorities and will be providing further periodic updates leading up to the Singapore Airshow 2020.
