Over the past few weeks, the South China Morning Post has been closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our attendees, exhibitors and speakers. As a result, we have made the difficult but important decision to postpone the Kindergartens Festival 2020 to Saturday, June 20 at the JW Marriott, Hong Kong. Learn More
