William Reed, publisher of The Grocer, has further postponed the UK Food Shows until 12-14 April 2021, in light of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
The event organisers had hoped to run the Food & Drink Expo, National Convenience Show and Farm Shop & Deli Show, originally planned for April this year, in September. However, following discussions with partners they now feel a further postponement is in the best interests of all involved.
The events will still be held at the NEC in Birmingham.
“I am hopeful this will also be a clear rallying point for the food and drink sectors to get together after this disastrous and challenging time where we can share inspiration, learning and demonstrate some of the amazing innovation that continues to be the bedrock of the sector,” said William Reed events and exhibitions MD Andrew Reed.
“We would like to thank our exhibitors, visitors, speakers, partners and suppliers for their continued support and patience during this challenging time.
Thank you for your understanding and support and I look forward to coming out fighting in April 2021. In the meantime, stay safe.”
