PCIM Asia 2022 to be postponed

11 Aug 2022

The organisers of PCIM Asia made the decision today to defer the fair in view of current circumstances regarding the pandemic in Shanghai. Originally scheduled to open from 31 August – 2 September at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, new dates for the exhibition and conference will be announced in due course.

Mr Louis Leung, Deputy General Manager of Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, outlined the rationale behind the postponement: “With the evolving situation of the pandemic and the well-being of our exhibitors and participants in mind, we have chosen to postpone PCIM Asia. Our co-organisers and supporters of the fair and conference, as well as our exhibitors are all on-board with this decision. They believe, as do we, that it is better to host the event at a later date in order to give all parties concerned the confidence that it will go ahead with minimal disruption. Finally, I’d like to express our gratitude to all participants for their understanding and support.”

PCIM Asia is jointly organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd and Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. To find out more about PCIM Asia, please visit or email
