Natural & Organic Products Europe 2020 event cancelled
Diversified Communications UK has confirmed that the 2020 Natural & Organic Products Europe trade show has been cancelled. The event will now run from 18-19 April 2021 at ExCeL London, where it will celebrate its 25th anniversary.
The decision follows the recent news that ExCeL is to become a temporary NHS ‘Nightingale’ hospital, providing support for thousands of patients with coronavirus.
Event director, Carol Dunning, said: “Like all businesses, we’ve been closely following the rapidly changing developments during these unprecedented and difficult times. With ExCeL, our venue, now taking on an important role to help the NHS during this national emergency, it became clear that we had no other option but to cancel the shows until next year.
“We appreciate how integral Natural & Organic Products Europe is to the industry it serves and are very sorry to disappoint the thousands of attendees that were planning on exhibiting and visiting this year. Many people have been hugely affected by events of the past few days and weeks and we will continue to support our communities in every way we can. I know that we’ll all continue to support each other in the months ahead.
“The success, as well as the safety of our exhibitors, speakers and visitors, has always been our priority and I know everyone will get behind this tough but necessary decision.
“We would like to thank everyone – our exhibitors, visitors, partners and suppliers, for their continued support and patience, and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021 for the busiest and biggest celebration of our industry yet.”
