Reed Exhibitions has announced that RetailEXPO will not take place in 2021. It didn’t happen this year also, back in April 2020.
A statement from the organisers said “Following the cancellation of RetailEXPO 2020, we have taken the even more difficult decision to not run RetailEXPO in 2021. Both the UK live events and retail industries are in uncertain positions and whilst we are confident that they will return in due course, a combination of these factors have lead us to this decision. We have made this announcement at an early stage to give clarity to all of our partners as they continue to navigate this global pandemic”.
RetailEXPO is one of Reed Exhibitions most valued brands and we are told that they will continue to monitor the industry as the situation becomes clearer over the coming months – no doubt to see if this event can be resurrected for 2020.
