TAIPEI, Taiwan (BRAIN) — Organizers of Taipei Cycle, the trade show originally scheduled to be held this month, have canceled a subsitute event that had been scheduled for mid-May.

The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) said the COVID-19 pandemic creates significant travel and logistical restrictions for the May event, which would have include bike and sporting goods exhibitors.

"Each government has taken necessary measures to contain the virus and Taiwan Center for Disease Control has also urged the local government to hold or cancel public events with over 1,000 participants," the organization said.

Taipei Cycle and TaiSPO, a sporting goods show, will still offer online trade meetings and an online exhibition in May.

Walter Yeh, the president and CEO of TAITRA said, "We respectfully apologize for the inconvenience incurred surrounding the cancellation of the 2020 Taipei Cycle show. We have decided to put people's concerns, health and well being ahead of the prosperity of the show and will return once we can guarantee the safe and inclusive environment we have always provided to the global cycling industry."
