UPS E-commerce 2020 – Rescheduling

The United Arab Emirates has taken a set of precautionary measures in compliance with global health standards to prevent the spread of the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) and has applied the medical protocols required to reduce the spread of the disease, including rescheduling the dates of events and conferences in various fields, in line with the preventive measures taken by the government and to preserve the security, health, and safety of participants and visitors.

Based on the above, we would like to announce that the UPS E-commerce 2020 Event, which was scheduled to take place on 16th March, will be rescheduled to another date.

The decision comes after a series of consultations and deliberations, which support the move to reschedule the date of its commencement in line with the efforts and measures taken at the national level aimed at limiting the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in order to ensure the safety of the participants.

We will notify you of the latest updates through various UPS and SME10X communication channels. We will keep you informed on the rescheduled date of the event as soon as possible.
