Along with other events planned for autumn 2020, Euro Bus Expo organiser Diversified Communications UK has confirmed the inevitable postponement of the show due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The trade show will now be held on 26-28 October 2021 at the NEC Birmingham.
Helen Conway, Euro Bus Expo Event Director, says: “We have been closely following the rapidly changing developments during these testing times. While we know that the coach and bus industry is highly resilient, we are mindful that for many in the sector 2020 is likely to be the most difficult year that they have faced.
“Although we remain hopeful that tough measures on restricted social interaction will have been relaxed by the autumn, too many questions remain surrounding practical arrangements for it to be viable to run Euro Bus Expo this year.
“Planning is already underway for Euro Bus Expo 2021. We will go into the rescheduled event with a great deal of momentum and we look forward to delivering a show that the industry can be proud of.”
CPT chief executive Graham Vidler adds: “The coach and bus industry is currently facing challenges that are unprecedented. With that in mind, CPT understands the decision to postpone Euro Bus Expo. It is a highlight of the calendar and presents members of the industry with an unrivalled opportunity to network with our peers, but the safety and wellbeing of exhibitors, speakers and visitors must always come first.”
