CORONAVIRUS FORCES FACILITIES EVENT TO POSTPONE

CORONAVIRUS FORCES FACILITIES EVENT TO POSTPONE

The Facilities Event and its co-located shows, which were originally scheduled to take place at the end of April, will now be held on 22-23 September 2020.

The decision has been taken in consideration of the recent spread of the coronavirus, as well as the impact of current and likely future travel restrictions. 

Nineteen Group, the company responsible for the events, says this new date will be safer and gives the market time to deal with these unprecedented circumstances. 

Stand bookings and visitor registrations will be transferred to the new dates and Nineteen Group began calling customers on Monday to help them through this process.

The new dateline also creates the opportunity to co-locate the existing series with one of Nineteen Group’s other events - The Emergency Services Show creating the UK’s largest event focused on the protection of people, places and assets.

The following events will co-locate:

  • The Emergency Services Show
  • The Fire Safety Event
  • The Security Event
  • The Health & Safety Event
  • The Facilities Event

Peter Jones, CEO of Nineteen Group said; "We have listened to the concerns of our customers regarding the escalation of Covid-19. Standing in their shoes, what is clear is we need to stand united with our community, and in a safe and responsible way, tackle the challenges that this virus brings. 

“We’ve held off sending out a blanket communication until today to allow our team to personally call each exhibitor. Feedback from the industry has been extremely positive. We would like to thank all our exhibitors, stakeholders and visitors for their continued support. We are committed to creating unprecedented business opportunities for the markets we serve”
