The Latest News on COVID
For contractors and professionals in the construction industry, it will be another three years until they’ll be able to meet face to face at INTERMAT. COMEXPOSIUM was forced to cancel the international exhibition due to travel restrictions and changing coronavirus guidelines. It didn’t make sense to hold a live edition of such proportions. Instead, organisers are skipping 2021 and moving to 2024 directly. Paris-Nord Villepinte (VIPARIS) will welcome trade visitors from April 19th to April 24th, 2024 amidst strict COVID-19 protective measures. The reasoning behind the decision is that waiting longer will give enough time for the pandemic to be put under control and allow for large exhibitions to be held safely.
