Routes Asia 2020

The route development forum for Asia

Chiang Mai, Thailand
7 - 9 June 2020

Informa Markets and the Routes team continue to monitor the developments of the Novel Coronavirus which first emerged from Wuhan, China in December of 2019. We have been adhering to the precautions and safety measures as recommended by government authorities, as well as the World Health Organisation (WHO) and are taking their guidance and recommendations seriously.

After careful consideration and consultation with our hosts, Airports of Thailand, it is with regret that we announce that Routes Asia, originally scheduled for 8-10 March 2020 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, will now be postponed and will take place on 7-9 June 2020. This is in line with the efforts by the local authorities, particularly in China, to control and limit the spread of this infectious disease. Read further information.

Routes Asia is the only route development event dedicated to the Asia Pacific region.
