The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (Taitra) has announced the cancellation of the new combined Taipei Cycle+ and Taispo+ trade shows, which were scheduled for May 14-16, as the government of Taiwan placed restrictions on international travel and events, in spite of its relatively successful containment of the coronavirus epidemic. The trade show was originally scheduled for early March, but was then postponed. A virtual exhibition with online meetings is due to be organized in its place. On the other hand, the second edition of the Paris’ Velo Show took place as scheduled on March 6-8, escaping the wave of cancelations and postponements that are sweeping away the majority of trade shows and other events. The French bicycle show attracted about 6,000 visitors and 75 exhibitors, with some 100 brands on display. Separately, Efttex, the international fishing tackle show, confirmed on March 19 that its next event will take place as planned in Prague on June 11-13. The June dates for the Outdoor Retailer show in Denver have been maintained as well.
