Rapid News Group has announced the decision to reschedule the Med-Tech Innovation Expo for September 28-29 2021. The event, the UK’s flagship exhibition for the medical technology sector, is set to be hosted in Hall 2 of the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham.
The organisers opted to move the event from its originally scheduled dates of June 29-30 2021 in order to enable those involved to plan with more confidence. Organisers say a September date gives more time for the UK’s vaccine programme to take effect and offers a better chance for a successful event.
Rapid News Group CEO Duncan Wood commented: “The latest information in the UK means the right thing to do is to reschedule the event to enable a further 13 weeks of vaccinations to take place ahead of the event. “
“On current deployment projections this has the potential to have a huge impact on attendee’s ability to visit and of course the subsequent ability for our community to come together for education, insight, networking and to do business.”
“As an organiser we recognise these connections are what makes live events work and this adjustment means we can be sure of creating more of these connections for the community whilst safeguarding the health and wellbeing of all attendees.”
“We are grateful to the NEC for working alongside us to identify a new dateline and I must also recognise the support of our key supporting associations and major exhibitors who have been steadfast in their support. This support gives us renewed resolve to deliver the event the industry deserves when we get to September.”
