It has been announced that Natural & Organic Products Europe is to be cancelled until 2021.
Diversified Communications UK has confirmed that this year’s trade show has sadly been cancelled and will now run on April 18-19, 2021 at ExCeL London, where it will celebrate its 25th anniversary.
The decision follows the recent and unexpected news that ExCeL is to become a temporary NHS ‘Nightingale’ hospital providing support for thousands of patients with coronavirus.
Event director, Carol Dunning, commented: “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.”
