For the second time in 2020, organisers of the Facilities Show – and other co-located events at London ExCeL – have postponed the event. The new date is 18-20 May 2021.
Originally scheduled for May 2020 at London ExCeL, the show was moved to 8-10 September 2020 after the pandemic put an end to large public gatherings.
Chris Edwards, events director, said: “We know how important our events are as a forum where our communities come together to learn, network and meet suppliers. Our focus over the last three months has been on ensuring that we can provide a safe and secure environment for our visitors and whilst we felt confident of achieving this we also have a duty to provide an event that matches the high standards that customers expect of us. Additionally, these events have strong international participation, and this would be severely compromised given the current restrictions.
“As each of our communities look to rebuild and recover in 2021 our team will also be working hard to ensure we return next year with an event that brings people back together for the reunion everyone will be crying out for. Details on how our events will continue to evolve and develop for next year will be forthcoming over the summer.”
Edwards added that the Digital Week in May attracted thousands of participants and new online initiatives will be launched later this year.
