March 16, 2020 – Spartanburg, SC – Due to growing Covid-19 health concerns regarding travel and large gatherings, several cleanroom conferences, meetings and tradeshows have been rescheduled or postponed. Contec will continue participating in these events on the rescheduled date and will inform our customers with any other news or changes.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Interphex has been canceled for 2020. Contec will be attending April 20-22, 2021 to showcase new products and technology.
“While facing an unprecedented situation, we needed to make tough choices and felt this was the best way to proceed for everyone involved”, said Randy Field, Group Vice President, Reed Exhibitions. “We are grateful for and proud of our customers and the entire industry who supported the event in 2020. Each play a critical role in making INTERPHEX by far the most important gathering for pharmaceutical, bio and device development and manufacturing professionals. While we recognize and appreciate how important INTERPHEX is to the industry, based upon the current COVID-19 situation and in the interest of the safety of all of our customers, we believe it is the right decision to hold INTERPHEX in 2021 when we can ensure the industry is ready and able to get back to business.”
