The organisers of the annual Executive Hire Show have taken the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 event by 12 months.
This year’s event had already been delayed by eight-weeks from its original dates in February, this being due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, ongoing public health concerns have made cancelling this year’s Show unavoidable.
The UK’s premier hire event will now be held between 9th and 10th February 2022 at its established home at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
In arriving at this decision, the EHS team surveyed Show exhibitors and key visitors. The response rate was certainly impressive, with 80% replying – 60% of exhibitors saying they wanted to postpone the Executive Hire Show to 2022. Although this news is disappointing for the sector and the Executive Hire team, it is the right decision based on all the feedback the Show had received.
Chris Moore, Executive Hire Show, publishing and events director, explained the decision: “It is with heavy hearts that we decided to move the event to 2022. Having surveyed our loyal exhibitors, this decision received the majority vote. We investigated all possibilities to stage the Show in 2021, but the unpredictable nature of COVID-19 and ongoing uncertainties have made our decision unavoidable. We are 100% committed to supporting our exhibitors, visitors, and other personnel associated with hosting the event – their health, safety, and wellbeing must be our number one priority.”
The EHS plans to continue to engage with the Show's exhibitors and keep up to date with product launches and hire news via the Executive Hire Show website and social media channels.
