Facilities Show Postponed Until May 2021
23 June 2020 | Updated 24 June 2020
 

Facilities Show and its co-located events will now be held at ExCeL London on 18–20 May 2021.

Facilities Show 2020 was originally scheduled for 19-21 May 2020, and was postponed to 8–10 September 2020 after COVID-19 cases were announced in the UK. 

This rescheduling covers the following events:

 

  • IFSEC International
  • FIREX International
  • Safety & Health Expo
  • Facilities Show
  • Intelligent Building Europe
  • Workplace Wellbeing Show
  • Counter Terror Expo, Ambition, Forensics Expo Europe, and World Counter Terror Congress (organised by Clarion)

 

This decision, taken as a result of consultation with exhibitors and other stakeholders, comes as a result of the continued disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular social distancing regulations and restrictions to international travel.

The official statement says that, although the show's organisers are confident they can provide a safe and secure environment for visitors, they believe the new date provides the best possible platform for exhibitors and visitors to do business.

 

“We’re confident the new date will give the market time to recover, and ensure we can offer an event that meets the high standards our customers expect. We hope the rescheduled event will be a chance for the industry to come together after a challenging period.”

Group Director, Informa Markets

 

Giving the Market Time to Recover

 

Chris Edwards, Group Director, Informa Markets said: “We’ve always been mindful of the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on events like ours.

“We’ve been working closely with our partners to provide not just a safe and secure event environment, but also a platform for our exhibitors and visitors to network, do business and secure a return on investment.

“We’re confident the new date will give the market time to recover, and ensure we can offer an event that meets the high standards our customers expect. We hope the rescheduled event will be a chance for the industry to come together after a challenging period.”

Edwards added: “It remains a time of uncertainty, so our events team will be contacting exhibitors and partners to answer questions and provide some clarity regarding the rescheduled dates and ensure we can deliver the same event experience we have planned.

“I’d like to thank our exhibitors and partners for their understanding during this time.”
