Following the current lockdown and continuing Covid-19 uncertainty, the South West’s biggest gift & home trade show, Giving & Living, has been postponed until Spring 2021.
The show will now take place from Monday May 10 – Wednesday May 12, at Westpoint, Exeter.
“We are delighted to have secured these dates, which provide more than two months lead time before the summer season,” says Mike Anderson, managing director of Hale Events.“We know how much our exhibitors and buyers are looking forward to getting back together face to face. These dates will allow businesses to trade though Easter and early Spring, and attend with confidence to buy, after what will be a have been a very disrupted winter for us all.”
“With travel restrictions and uncertainty deterring people from holidaying abroad, domestic holidays are forecast to dominate over the next few years, as the after-shocks of the Covid virus continue to be felt around the world,” adds Mike. “The South West is set to be one of the leading UK destinations, and the summer showed how well it coped with increased tourist numbers.”
