Coronavirus Statement – Changes to Upcoming Shows
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to develop both in the UK and globally, the health and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is our number one priority.
It is with great regret that we have taken the decision to move Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion & Embroidery and the Creative Craft Show – 19-22 March, NEC Birmingham.
Following talks with the NEC we have secured new dates to run Sewing for Pleasure and Fashion & Embroidery alongside the Creative Craft Show at the NEC, Birmingham from 25-28 June.
This move will mean we will deliver these three major shows, at the same size and scale of the March event, in June.
Exhibitors who have booked a stand and visitors who have purchased tickets for the March NEC show will be transferred to the new dates in June or alternatively offered a refund.
Cake International on Tour and the Creative Craft Show – 24-25 April, Excel London
We have also taken the difficult decision to cancel The Creative Craft Show and Cake International on Tour at ExCel, London, from 24-25 April.
Exhibitors who have booked a stand and visitors who have purchased tickets for Cake International on Tour will be offered a refund. Competition entrants will be offered the option to transfer to the NEC November show or alternatively offered a refund.
Exhibitors who have booked a stand and visitors who have purchased tickets for the Creative Craft Show will be offered the option to transfer/upgrade to an alternative show or offered a refund.
We are of course extremely disappointed given the preparation that goes into the shows from all involved. We look forward to continuing to work with our community of exhibitors, sponsors and visitors to deliver great shows for everyone.
