Sixth edition of Myplant & Garden postponed due to corona


The organisational secretariat of International Trade Fair Myplant & Garden in Milan, Italy announces that the sixth edition of Myplant & Garden has been postponed due to the threat of corona virus.

The organisational secretariat – taking into consideration the health of all exhibitors, visitors and all their families – wishes to make clear immediately to all exhibitors, bodies and associations of the industry the postponement of the trade fair in the month of September 2020.

The secretariat considers the gravity of the unpredictable current situation. It also considers the fact that numerous exhibiting companies have canceled their participation because of the fear of contagion due to the diffusion of COVID-19. It furthermore considers the predictable participation of an inferior number of visitors.

Situation of emergency

The Organisational Secretariat of the trade fair Myplant & Garden has been in contact with representatives of the Prefecture of Milan and of Regione Lombardia in order to ask an opinion concerning the measures to be taken in regard to the current situation of emergency.”

The decision is grown out of unpredictable conditions of emergency. The secretariat calls the perspective of September 2020 the best solution in order to keep building, year after year, a path of shared growth.

According the secretariat the postponement takes into account its sense of responsibility and the need to protect the health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and all their families in the first place. „We are certain that the postponement of Myplant may become a further opportunity of growth and development for all exhibitors, visitors, partners and co-operators. This would have not been possible from 26 to 28 February. We will keep working by trusting each other, so that the VI edition of Myplant can be what should have been in the next few days: a great success.”
