Communication just came from Swatch Group: the event Time to Move scheduled in Zurich from 4 to 6 March will be canceled due to the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The press release on the cancellation of Time to Move says: "Considering the uncertainty related to the Coronavirus epidemic, in order to ensure the well-being and health of our guests, partners and colleagues, Swatch Group decided not to organize the Time to Move event, which was supposed to take place in Zurich from 4-6 March 2020. Swatch Group Prestige brands will introduce their new products to the markets at a later stage during regional events, in order to prevent their partners from traveling internationally in an insecure climate. Representatives of the brand will contact you soon with further details. Thanks for your understanding and valuable cooperation. "
For those who do not remember, a similar thing already happened during Baselworld 2003, where exhibitors from the Asian region were banned from the fair due to the outbreak of SARS. However, the demonstration was held and no cases of contagion were found.
