Exhibitions in the UK have been on hold now for twelve months. One of the first industries to close due to Covid-19, exhibitions and business events will be one of the last to reopen.
On the 22nd February, the UK Prime Minister outlined his roadmap to reopening the economy in Britain. Hopefully, small events will run from May 17th and larger events from June 21st, but we have a long way to go yet. These opening dates depend upon the outcome of “pilot events” which will determine which procedures organisers and venues will have to put into place to be “Covid-Secure”.
These pilot events are due to take place at the beginning of April, and then the organisers of events will take the decision as to whether or not their events will run in the second half of 2021. Naturally, we hope that July 2021 onwards will see the return of exhibitions and business events so we can get back to site at places like the Telford International Centre, NEC Birmingham, and ExCel London, doing what we do best – hiring great Audio-Visual, Sound, Lighting, Video and Computer equipment to customers like you.
We are pleased to be able to launch this new ExpoRent website ready for the return of exhibitions in the UK. This simple to use webshop make it to book the equipment you need for your stand quickly and easily on-line. We are aiming to provide our hire services at all of the major business to business shows across the UK. A full list of those shows can be found on our Show Dates page. And if you’re worried about making a booking with us for a show that subsequently gets postponed or cancelled, don’t panic. Our Covid guarantee will simply move your booking to the new show dates in the case of postponement, and you’ll get a full refund if the show is cancelled.
We look forward to seeing you on the show floor somewhere soon. Happy Hiring!
