Mindful of the impact of Coronavirus

 

“We have been closely following developments since COVID–19 began spreading, and we have consistently been mindful of its potential impact on global events like ours."

Chris Edwards

Group Director, Informa Markets

According to an official statement from Facilities Show:

“This decision has been made in the light of the ongoing consultation with exhibitors and other stakeholders in regard to the previously announced dateline, and allows all of the events to better fulfil their obligation to deliver the best possible platform for both exhibitors and visitors to do business. “

Chris Edwards, Group Director of Informa Markets, who produces the event said:

“We have been closely following developments since COVID–19 began spreading, and we have consistently been mindful of its potential impact on global events like ours.

By working closely with our venue partners ExCeL we have now been able to secure rescheduled dates for these events, which will now serve as an opportunity for our clients and exhibitors to regather in September —it gives the market time to recover as demand catches up.”

The rescheduled date provides clarity and ensures we have time and space to deliver the same fantastic event we promised, providing a safe and secure environment conducive to business, networking and career development for the health and safety and facilities management professions.”
