Antwerp XL moves online, live event further postponed
PRESS RELEASE – Breakbulk event Antwerp XL has been further postponed to 10-12 March 2021. Belgian restrictions in force to August 30th make it “extremely difficult” to plan and promote the event, which had initially been rescheduled for September this year, organizer Easyfairs states.
“Whilst we were deeply disappointed to cancel our April edition earlier this year, we had hoped things might return to a form of normality come September. With the Belgian government’s announcement that all events cannot run until after 30th August 2020, it makes it extremely difficult to plan, promote & run a large-scale international event”, comments Easyfairs divisional director Mark Rimmer.
To offer an alternative, Antwerp XL will host an online event from 14-18 September and host a series of online seminars dubbed the “Summer of Breakbulk”. The first instalment is planned on Wednesday 24 June with an interactive webinar on Global Trends and Economic Factors impacting the breakbulk industry.
