As at Friday (January 31th) there are about more than 9600 reported cases confirmed and has so far claimed 213 lives as a result of Wuhan coronavirus outbreak in China.
Our Stage Lighting manufacturer has been told by their government to extend their Chinese Lunar new year to Feb 9th and the factory will remain closed till then. Workers are not allowed to go to work and are encouraged to stay at home. Email and enquiry do not get any reply. Fortunately, we are still able to communicate with our normal supplier via WeChat.
This has somehow affected the delivery of the led stage lighting to us. Logistic is affected as well. There will be delay in the delivery according to our supplier. Nevertheless, our current project and customer do understand the situation and has given some leniency in the delivery.
Another news that we received is that this year Prolight And Sound Guangzhou 2020 will be postponed.
According to the email received mentioned that they are supporting the government’s efforts in controlling the novel coronavirus outbreak in China hence the Prolight + Sound Guangzhou organisers have decided to postpone the 2020 fair, originally scheduled to be held on 19 – 22 February at Area A & B China Import & Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou.
The new show dates will be further announced by the show’s organisers Messe Frankfurt and Guangdong International Science & Technology Exhibition Company (STE).
We certainly hope the outbreak will be under control in a very short time and pray for the safety of the people who are affected.
