We are sure you have all heard the fantastic news that we finally have a firm start date for recommencing our shows. We have already started a plan of action covering the required safety measures. We will be releasing more details over the coming weeks
Please see below for updates relating to each of our shows:
- Event City Manchester 3 – 5th September – Going Virtual!
As these dates fall before the Government’s October start date, this event will no longer be going ahead. Instead we will be running our second CCS LIVE on the 5-6th September. Our last LIVE show reached over 100,000 keen crafters and was viewed for over 300,000 minutes! We have opportunities for advertising, sponsorship and demonstration slots (more information to follow next week) – if you would like to be part of this, please contact Rebecca on: 07779975916. If you have put down a deposit for Manchester, you have the option to move to Manchester 4-6 Feb 2021 or use it to be be included in our CCS LIVE virtual show plan. Please let Rebecca or Steve know your preference and they will be able to talk through the options available.
- Westpoint Exeter 24-27th September 2020 – Moving
As these dates fall before the Government’s October start date this event will be changing dates. We have been able to secure new dates of the 22-25th October 2020. Exeter is always such a popular show so we are thrilled to be able to go ahead on these dates! The venue is ideally laid out to enable us to incorporate all of the elements of a show that our visitors know and love!
- SEC Glasgow 22-25 October 2020 – Cancelled
Unfortunately The SEC who are owned by Glasgow City Council have been asked to remain as a Nightingale hospital which means that our event is unable to go ahead at this time. The eagle eyed amongst you will have spotted that our new Exeter dates are on the same weekend. For many of you it will be as simple as moving your booking to Exeter. We will be contacting exhibitors with bookings, but if you have any questions please call Rebecca on: 07779975916
- NEC Birmingham 5-8 November 2020 – Let’s Go!
We can’t wait to welcome you all back to our flagship show! It’s the biggest in our calendar and attracts more visitors than any of our other autumn shows.
If you have already booked you don’t need to do anything, though we recommend you read our safety guidelines. If you haven’t yet secured your space, please phone Rebecca on: 07779975916 to do so. Our visitors are keen to start supporting the shows as soon as possible so we expect this to be a successful event.
Keeping our exhibitors and visitors safe:
Stay safe. We’re all in this together.
