In light of the ongoing Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic the Natural Stone Show & Hard Surfaces 2021 exhibitions due to take place in London in their usual two-yearly spot in the Spring have been postponed for 12 months.
They will now take place 26-28 April 2022 in their usual venue, ExCeL London.
Event director Richard Bradbury explains: "‘We are conscious that the industry has been severely disrupted by the economic and social challenges brought about by Covid-19. Following an extensive consultation process, the decision has been taken to delay the event by a year to allow market conditions to improve and to best support the natural stone and hard surfaces industry during this period.
"With plans for a vaccination programme to be rolled out during the first half of next year, we anticipate a return to a more normal trading environment by the end of 2021. This leaves the Spring 2022 event ideally placed, for visitors and exhibitors alike, to make the most of the recovery."
The Natural Stone Show is celebrating its 25th anniversary. At the previous event, The Natural Stone Show & Hard Surfaces team will announce a range of exciting visitor features throughout 2021.
