The Security Event and The Fire Safety Event Resceduled to September
Following the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe, Nineteen Events have taken the decision to reschedule The Security Event, The Fire Safety Event, The Health and Safety Event and The Facilities Event to 22-23 September 2020.
The decision has been taken in consideration of the recent spread of the virus, as well as the impact of current and likely future travel restrictions. Whilst government guidance has not restricted mass gatherings, we feel we need to uphold a duty-of-care to our community and have listened to our customers.
All four events are twice the size of last year, have exceeded their targets and even in the last weeks are enjoying record-breaking pre-registration, but the organizers feel this new date will be safer and gives the market time to deal with these unprecedented circumstances. The NEC has worked hard to provide a slot in September to give the market clarity and provide an even larger visitor base to do business with. Stand bookings and visitor registrations will be transferred to the new dates.
The new dateline also creates the opportunity to co-locate the existing series with one of Nineteen Group’s other events - The Emergency Services Show creating the UK’s largest event focused on the protection of people, places and assets.
