Manchester Cleaning Show moves to Sept 2021: virtual exhibition & conference will replace next month's event...
The Manchester Cleaning Show – due to take place next month – has been postponed until September 2021 because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
A virtual exhibition & conference will replace next month's event, on 14th and 15th October.
"This has been a saddening decision for everyone working on the Show, but we have unanimously agreed that the best course of action is to reschedule the event,” say the organisers. The latest government rules regarding social gatherings and the ongoing local lockdown in the Greater Manchester are has forced us to re-evaluate our plans for the event.
“We have been, and remain, steadfast in our commitment to stage a much-needed physical exhibition and conference for the industry. We hope that the move to 2021 will see us able to operate freely without social distancing restrictions, and ensure that we do not interfere or clash with other planned industry events.
“But there is so much to discuss right now. So many of our exhibitors have products that can help the UK get back to business; and so many individuals need the support and the contacts that an event brings. The UK cleaning industry needs an opportunity to come together now so we will be staging a virtual version of the Manchester Cleaning Show on the same dates of the planned event on 14th and 15th October, 2020.
“This isn't what we had hoped for but the opportunities that this virtual event presents are exciting and we have a really innovative platform to show you. There are no apps to download, you can view everything on a device of your choice, and it will deliver exciting content and business solutions for our visitors and a vital commercial opportunity for our exhibitors.
“It's important that we come together. Exhibitors are being contacted individually regarding the multiple opportunities available to them, and those professionals already registered to attend the Manchester Cleaning Show will soon receive an invitation and access details to enjoy the virtual version.
“The industry has demonstrated resilience, adaptability, and innovation throughout this pandemic and we must thank all our exhibitors, visitors and speakers for their continued support and patience.
“We look forward to welcoming you to the Manchester Cleaning Show Virtual in October.”
