ORGANISERS of the Executive Hire Show have rescheduled next year’s event from February to April 28 and 29 due the ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The show will still take place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, with the organisers saying they felt it was important to get back to business ‘safely, securely, and in line with strict government guidelines to the benefit of exhibitors and visitors alike and stage a Covid-safe exhibition’.
Chris Moore, Executive Hire Show publishing and events director, explained, “I have not taken this decision lightly and have consulted with event managers, hirers and many of our commercial partners and all have agreed with this prudent measure and have confirmed that they would rather the event is moved, and that stringent safety procedures are implemented, than the show is postponed to any later in the year, or indeed cancelled.
“I appreciate that this decision will impact on organisations and visitors’ travel plans. However, the health, safety and wellbeing of all Executive Hire Show attendees and exhibitors has to be our number one priority and I hope people will understand why we have had to take this course of action in the face of unprecedented circumstances.”
