Homebuilding show postponed
The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show, due to be staged at the NEC later this month, has been postponed until the summer, organisers said in an announcement earlier today.
The event, used by many in the industry to showcase products direct to consumers, was still declaring its intention to go ahead until the statement was posted, saying the decision was in light of growing concern for the well-being of visitors and staff.
The statement read: “The Homebuilding & Renovating Show has been following Government guidelines regarding the continuation of our event surrounding the outbreak of Coronavirus. However, as the news has been progressing we have listened to the concerns, from all parties, around the health and welfare of their staff.
“As a company we are becoming increasingly concerned for the wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors and staff, and as this is our first priority, we have taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the NEC, until the Summer. We are now working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation. Please bear with us while we try to establish new dates.
“We will be in touch with all our visitors as soon as we have more information to share.”
