ITT Hub 2021 signals go-ahead for summer show

The government roadmap to cautiously ease lockdown restrictions in England has resulted in confirmation that ITT Hub 2021 event will take place on 30 June and 1 July at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

The event falls into step three of the criteria, where events can open after 17 May, subject to the milestones set out in the roadmap being met. 

A potential limit of 4,000 attendees per day outdoors and 1,000 indoors applies to events which are mainly outdoors. 

Following the roadmap’s publication, the ITT Hub advisory board agreed to support the event taking place, subject to the milestones being achieved. The organisers say they will continue to proceed with cautious optimism to deliver a safe and secure exhibition and conference.

The Advisory Board said: “The opportunity to stage ITT Hub 2021 comes at a critical time. Whilst the world has been focusing on the global pandemic and economic consequences, the climate emergency has not gone away. 

“As we overcome Covid-19, we need to redouble our efforts on the climate. With caution and responsible planning, ITT Hub 2021 provides the platform for supporting the government’s policy for decarbonising road transport.”

An Exhibitor Open Day is scheduled for 19 May at Farnborough where exhibitors will receive presentations on planning and marketing of the event, meeting trade press and to attend an industry seminar related to the decarbonisation plan scheduled for publication this spring.
