Design was scheduled to take place from 12 to 15 March at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre. It will now take place in the same location from 26 to 29 May, assuming that the virus has been contained by then.

“After careful consideration and advice, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Design Shanghai to ensure the welfare and safety of visitors to our show, our exhibitors and our team,” said Design Shanghai director Zhuo Tan.

“We are grateful to have confirmed new dates in the same venue with the same layout so as not to compromise the quality and success of the fair,” she continued.

“We appreciate the show of support that we have received from the design community and our partners during this time.”

2020 FAIR POSTPONED TO 26-29 MAY 2020

Following the outbreak of the Coronavirus in China, Design Shanghai has been rescheduled to take place on May 26-29,2020. 

We have made this decision based on advice and information from government and local authorities in China and consultation with our partners, venue and local team. The safety of our customers and team is our first priority.
