Facilities Show Announces New Plans for 2021
Facilities Show, the UK's largest gathering of FM professionals, has announced it will now take place from 12th to 14 July ExCeL London.
Organisers, Informa Markets, have also confirmed the exhibition will operate in line with the industry-recognised, and government approved AllSecure standard.
Chris Edwards, Group Director, explains:
"The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and exhibitors is our foremost priority which is why we have moved the date to the summer of 2021 and will be looking to operate under the highest possible level of health and safety standards, which Informa AllSecure enables us to do."
AllSecure was piloted in September 2020 and approved by the government of the United Kingdom on 19 November 2020 as a model for running large events safely. It involves several health and safety measures, including deep cleaning, social distancing on-site, staggered arrival times and PPE, such as face masks.
Informa Markets has additionally announced plans for a variety of online events which are set to take place in June 2021, with Edwards adding: "Whilst 2020 had its challenges for in-person events, Facilities Show was able to innovate and bring the industry together remotely via online platforms and we are looking to further build on that success in 2021."
Online experiences will include opportunities for audiences to organise live video calls with exhibitors, browse solution providers and products via an online marketplace while some of the very latest in tech innovation, industry best practice and thought leadership will be showcased.
