May 24, 2021 (Bangkok, Thailand): During this critical period, we trust that you are in good health and your business is thriving. In this email, we would like to share important updates with you as well as the latest developments at Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL and Bio Asia Pacific 2021.
To ensure our exhibitors and visitors can successfully prepare your trade show participation, Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL & Bio Asia Pacific management team, together with Science and Technology Trade Association (STTA) and Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS) would like to CONFIRM, that both shows WILL TAKE PLACE AS SCHEDULED on 1-3 September 2021 at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand. Bio Asia Pacific will open for pre-registration in the 1st week of JULY while Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL’s PRE-REGISTRATION NOW being OPEN for participants.
Evaluating the current situation in Thailand, until now, about 2.9 million people [i]in Thailand have been vaccinated – with one or both doses (as of May 23, 2021). Meanwhile, the country’s mass vaccination rollout is scheduled to begin in June when the first batch of six million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine will be produced locally by Siam Bioscience. The test batches of the Covid-19 vaccine made by Siam Bioscience had passed the quality testing at AstraZeneca’s designated laboratories and expected to deliver the first batch of vaccine to Thai Government in June 2021.[ii]*[iii]
The amount will increase to 10 million doses a month between July and November, and the last batch of five million doses in December. In addition to 63 million doses (61 million from AstraZeneca and two million from Sinovac), the government is in the process of acquiring 37 million more doses of vaccine to be delivered within this year. This may include 5-10 million doses each from Pfizer, Sputnik V, Johnson & Johnson and Sinovac, as well as from Moderna, Sinopharm and Bharat.
The Registration of Covid-19 vaccinated started since 1 May, 2021, and the vaccination starts on 7 June, 2021, for the priority group, comprising people aged 60 or older and those with seven chronic diseases. Other groups or people aged 18-59 can register in July 2021, and the vaccination starts in August 2021. The government expects the nationwide vaccine rollout to complete within four to seven months. [iv] The goal is to speed up the vaccination service to covered 70% of the total population in the country or about 50 million people by the end of this year.[v]
With the increasing number of vaccinations around the country, officially June onwards, we strongly believe that the COVID-19 situation in Thailand will get better quickly and we can continue to organize Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL & Bio Asia Pacific during 1-3 September 2021. However, for those International Exhibitors who are unable to travel due to the global travel restrictions, alternatively Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL and Bio Asia Pacific have created and shared the Virtual Exhibitor Packages to offer our exhibitors more flexibility and full maximize benefit with the virtual exhibition and activities through our substantially upgraded “Online Platform”.
This new digital platform will enable exhibitor and visitor of Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL and Bio Asia Pacific to pre-register online, gather show information, explore virtual exhibition, attend online conferences and conduct business matching with target buyers. The platform is currently on the development process and will be opened in July, 2021.
