Another Design Fair Postponed Due to Current COVID-19 Outbreak | Design Shanghai

Design Shanghai

Originally slated to take place from June 9, 2022 to June 12, 2022, trade fair Design Shanghai has been rescheduled to October 13, 2022 as the city is in lockdown following a coronavirus outbreak. Asia’s leading international design event will now take place from October 13, 2022 to October 15, 2022.


China’s biggest city, Shanghai has been in lockdown since March 28, 2022, while other cities including Shenzhen are also under lockdown. The decision to postpone the show in October has been made as China continues to feel the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic with Shanghai city currently being under lockdown. “We have made this decision based on advice and information from government and local authorities in China and in consultation with our partners, venue and team in China and internationally. The safety of our visitors, exhibitors and team remains our top priority, as does our commitment to producing the best possible event for our exhibitors, visitors and partners,” informs a press release.

Just like the lockdown in 2020, the current lockdown is having an impact on architects and designers in the country as projects are being put on hold. Reports suggest that the restrictions issued by the government this year are more severe than in the previous wave of the pandemic.

Reportedly, the trade fair in October will take place at Shanghai World Expo & Convention Centre, the same venue as it would have been in June. Design Shanghai will showcase exceptional design, quality and inspiration and introduce the world’s established brands, exciting up-and-coming designers from China and abroad, as well as renowned galleries. Other updates on the fair are expected to be released soon.

Other than Salone del Mobile, which was supposed to be held in April and now moved to June, Design Shanghai is one the latest shows that has been postponed in 2022 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, while Sweden's Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair has been postponed until February 2023 which was earlier postponed from February to September.
