Last June the organisers announced that China Cycle would move to August and outside Shanghai to avoid the strict COVID measures in place in the city at that time. However, a new recent outbreak in Anhui province, where the show was scheduled to take place from 4 to 7 August, makes it again not possible to organise an event of this scale.
Lockdown in Anhui Province
According to recent media reports, China placed millions of people under lockdown in central Anhui province, in the latest of a string of outbreaks testing Beijing’s no-tolerance approach to COVID-19.
In a public statement, the organising committee says, “we sincerely apologise for the adverse impact on all parties due to the postponement of the exhibition. We will restart the preparation for the China Cycle 2022 at the right time while ensuring the health of the majority of the exhibitors and visitors and the effect of the exhibition.”
