Korea Build, an interior, building and housing products exhibition was cancelled for the first time in its 35-year history over the COVID-19 outbreak. The trade fair has long been a key business platform where construction, architecture, and interior companies announce new products and exchange information.


The spread of the coronavirus has affected the trade fair programme around the Asian countries and the globe. Trade fairs have been either postponed or cancelled in Korea, China and Japan.


Weeks ago, the Korean government has declared the national emergency and the country is working collaboratively with China and to discuss cooperation on the coronavirus pandemic amid growing concern over the number of infected people arriving in their countries from overseas.
