Naidex has been postponed until March 2021.
After the initial show was moved from March to November this year, the show’s organisers have made the decision to push it back again.
ROAR B2B confirmed the event would now take place on March 9-10, 2021
It explained: “After extensive consultation with our partners, exhibitors and visitors, we have taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone the event until Spring 2021. ”
“We will be continuing our support of the independent living community through a number of digital initiatives in the run-up to the March event.
“Please check our website and follow us on social media for regular updates. We welcome any input from our visitors and customers on such initiatives and are proud to be able to support the industry as much as we can through this difficult time. ”
Concluding: “We look forward to welcoming you to Naidex on the 9th & 10th March 2021 at NEC, Birmingham.”
AMP had recently reported on how organisers had been doing their best to work on bringing the show back safely.
As part of the statement released on bringing the show back in 2020, the team behind the show stated: “Our priority for Naidex is to support everyone who is living with health conditions or impairments, as well as anyone caring for or supplying to this community.”
“We have been working closely with the NEC, Birmingham and internally to implement a number of measures, to ensure we can deliver a safe and meaningful event for the disability and independent living industries.”
Despite this, ROAR B2B becomes the latest in a number of healthcare shows and events having to make big changes to their 2020 plans.
The announcement comes as some business and sporting events across the country and preparing with pilot days to gauge how large gatherings can be managed safely following the Prime Minister’s go-ahead.
