CineAsia 2020, set to be held December 7-10 in Bangkok, Thailand, has been cancelled by the Film Expo Group. According to the group’s official announcement, “Given ongoing uncertainty over the COVID-19 pandemic and taking into account travel restrictions by governments as well as employers, we feel this is the prudent decision.”
One of the group’s other trade shows, ShowEast, is now set to be held on those days – December 7-10 – in Miami, Florida at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Initially, ShowEast had been set to run October 19-22.
Film Expo Group chairman Robert Sunshine said in a statement, “ShowEast will be the first live convention for the industry in more than a year. It will be a time to celebrate our business and get us back on the road to the new normal. We believe that by moving the dates back nearly two months we can achieve this goal and to continue to support this industry we love.”
