Organisers have announced that the 2021 edition of London Stationery Show will take place from 18-19 May at the Business Design Centre.
Exhibitions in the UK have been halted over the course of the pandemic and were originally due to resume in October. The government Department for Culture, Media and Sport has already approved the event industry’s Covid-19 guidance, and was also satisfied with pilot events which took place in September. It is now expected that events will be allowed to restart from March 2021.
“We are confident that exhibitions will resume in the spring” said Event Director, Alex Butler “and to ensure we’re in the best position possible to host a second-to-none event, we have secured a slightly later date than usual for next year’s show. From speaking with exhibitors and visitors over the course of this year we know that everyone is craving the opportunity to meet face-to-face. The industry is in agreement that nothing can replace the organic business which comes from an exhibition.”
“The health and safety of everyone involved will continue to be at the core of our planning, and we will be working hard to communicate our plans to ensure everyone feels confident attending the show” Alex continued. “We are ready to safely open London Stationery Show’s doors and cannot wait to see everyone there.”
