ITT Hub has announced new dates of 30th June – 1st July 2021 at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre following government guidelines stating that no large-scale live events can take place until at least April 2021.
In making this decision now, the organiser Binswood Media believes that exhibitors and visitors alike will have extra time to plan with confidence, to create an experience which is safe and accessible for all.
Comments Mark Griffin CEO, Binswood Media: ‘ We are absolutely determined to be the first event in these sectors in 2021, where visitors can come along and experience latest vehicles, technology and innovation in a safe way. We remain in regular dialogue with our market and have been monitoring the situation extremely closely since the Prime Minister’s announcement in September.
“We have consulted our partners, stakeholders and vehicle manufacturer exhibitors about the new dates. The feedback has been extremely positive and totally supportive. There has been an appreciation of our practical and collaborative approach. We want to seize this opportunity to make difficult decisions swiftly in a pragmatic, responsible way, with safety as our key priority.’
Leon Daniels OBE Chairman, Binswood Media, adds: ‘We are on track to host over 160 exhibitors when the doors open on 30th June including 14 vehicle manufacturers from across the truck, van, bus and coach sectors, with more expected to confirm soon. Visitors to ITT Hub 2021 looking to future-proof their businesses will benefit from seeing first-hand the largest and most significant display of low emission and alternative fuelled vehicles found anywhere in the UK.’
And David Wells CEO, Logistics UK said: ‘We fully support Mark and his team in this decision. These extra six weeks will enable better planning, build confidence and deliver an enhanced, safe experience for all involved. We are really excited about being able to meet our customers, peers and transport sector colleagues for the first time for more than a year, in June and July.’
In 2022, the dates of the event will revert to the usual timeslot, 11th – 12th May at
