The return of exhibitions!
July marked the start of the post-pandemic events surge, bringing positivity and growth to the industry.
July 2021 has been an incredibly significant month for the exhibition and events industry. As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, and as the demand for exhibitions and events resumes at pace, the industry approaches this growing demand with a positive outlook and renewed vigour.
During lockdown, event creators became accustomed to delivering events in increasingly innovative ways. However, in England on 19 July all limits on social contact were lifted, with Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Ireland eventually following suit, meaning venues that were closed until recently can now operate at full capacity again.
Boris Johnson has urged caution however, issuing guidance emphasising personal judgement and responsibility. Many venues and creators are bringing back live events with additional health and safety measures in place, with many venues requesting proof of vaccination prior to admittance. New guidance also comes into force on 2 August indicating that fully vaccinated travellers to England from an amber list country will no longer have to self-isolate, opening greater possibilities to kick-start in-person events and exhibitions overseas. This is welcome news to the UK events and tourist industry.
If you’re about to attend or exhibit one of the first shows or events of 2021, we’ve created top tips in preparation.
At Aboveline, we’re now gearing up for an expected increase in production across the whole range of our services and looking forward to all the events taking place in the latter part of the year. In particular some local events to our HQ – and being a North-West company – we’re thrilled to see the return of the Royal Cheshire Show on 31 July. This summertime agricultural event promises to be a real celebration of rural life and its community within.
We’ve also recently been helping clients set to appear at forthcoming events including Exclusively Housewares on 24-25 August and the world-leading Defence and Security event DSEI, which is due to take place 14-17 September. This has meant that our team has continued to focus on great customer service and emerging trends in the exhibition industry so that we’re able to provide the very best for both current and new clients, whatever their needs.
