A statement from Reed Exhibitions – Organises of the London Book Fair.

Reed Exhibitions has today announced that the London Book Fair 2020 scheduled to take place at Olympia, London from 10 to 12 March will be cancelled following the escalations of CoVID-19 Coronavirus in Europe.

The effects actual and projected of  Coronavirus are becoming evident across all aspects of our lives here in the UK and across the world with many of our participants facing travel restrictions, we have been following UK government guidelines and working with the rolling advice from the public health authorities and other organisations and so it is with reluctance that we have taken the decision not to go ahead with this year’s event.

we recognise that business has to continue. With this in mind, we will of course support and collaborate with exhibitors and visitors to keep our world moving during this difficult period. We thank all those from the UK and a multitude of other countries who have prepared over the last year to deliver what promised to be wonderful book fair showcasing as ever the exciting best of the global book industry. The London Book Fair will return better than ever in 2021.
