Faversham House today announces Utility Week Live (UWL), due to take place at Birmingham’s NEC 10-11 November, has been moved to 18-19 May 2021. Faversham House has also announced the launch of Utility Week Live Online in November 2020.
Amanda Barnes, CEO of Faversham House, the organisers of UWL, says:
“We have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and awaiting the Government’s go-date and guidance on large scale events, now released. While the government guidelines permit us to go ahead safely with a physical show in November, we feel it is too early for our industry, particularly given the front-line status of the utility companies. After careful consideration we have therefore decided to move UWL to May 2021. We are proud of the UWL experience and committed to maintaining the volume of exhibitors and visitors which the industry has come to expect and enjoy.
“We have had extensive conversations with our exhibitors and visitors, and in light of their feedback, concluded their needs will best be met by a virtual event in November this year, leading into a physical exhibition in May 2021. To this end, we are excited to announce the launch of Utility Week Live Online in November, a cutting-edge, immersive digital experience bringing the industry together in a virtual space.
“This will lead into UWL, which will return to the NEC’s Hall 3 on May 18 & 19 2021, reuniting the industry at its flagship event, delivering a first class visitor and exhibitor experience, in line with the highest standards of health and safety. More details of both events will be published shortly.
“We thank everyone for their patience and understanding in these unusual times.”
