BANGKOK, April 30, 2010 - In view of the recent closure of some major airports in Europe due to
Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruptions in Iceland, potentially affecting travel
for exhibitors and visitors from Europe and around the world along with the
current situation in Bangkok, Thailand, a joint decision has been made by the
organizers to reschedule THAIFEX-World of Food ASIA 2010 to 30 June-4 July

Promotion, the Ministry of Commerce stated, because of these unfortunate
events, the three co-organizing partners of the THAIFEX - World of Food ASIA

May 12th-16th, 2010, to June 30th-July 4th, 2010. The venue of the event will
remain unchanged, at Challenger, IMPACT Muang-Thong-Thani.

discussion and feedback from the industry. Our purpose is to ensure that
participants' experience at THAIFEX-2010 is more safety. However a stronger
