In view of the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the BHETA board has re-scheduled the Exclusively Show 2021 to 24-25 August, 2021.
Will Jones, chief operating officer of BHETA and chair of Exclusively said, "The health and well-being of all Exclusively attendees is of paramount importance. We consulted with our exhibitors and visitors and there is a genuine desire for the show to go ahead, but at the right time and in the right place. and there was strong support for a move to August.
"The Business Design Centre has an existing very well organised set of health and wellbeing protocols and we will confirm them to all stakeholders in the lead up to the Exclusively Show.
"Moving the date provides an opportunity for the industry to gain more confidence as the vaccination programme gathers momentum, and the timing fits with the Autumn buying season. The speed of the vaccine roll-out has given us genuine belief that by August the UK will be back to some form of normality – the pace of the roll-out is continuing to rise and we expect, based on todays' numbers, that by showtime a majority of UK adults will have had two vaccine shots; and our industry will be able to move forward."
