Channel Live to be postponed until 30-31 March 2022.

MA Exhibitions Limited, which owns and runs Channel Live, have taken the decision to postpone the event from 21-22 September 2021 to 30-31 March 2022, remaining at the NEC Birmingham.

Monday 21st June should have marked the end of lock-down measures in the UK. However, the announcement of a minimum four-week delay to the lifting of restrictions has now been implemented, adding to the ongoing uncertainty that is understandably impacting the confidence of visitors, speakers and exhibitors in committing their attendance to trade shows this year. With cases rising 59% in the last week alone and ongoing concern over the spread of the delta variant, we feel this is the right decision for everyone concerned.

As organisers, our absolute priority remains the health, safety and confidence of all of our exhibitors, visitors and staff. However, it is also our responsibility to provide the community that we serve with the event it deserves. The ongoing lack of clarity from Government on what measures will be required upon the reopening of large scale live events, means that in our view, moving the event to March 2022 will allow us as organisers to offer a greater experience for all parties involved.

All existing exhibitor bookings will be automatically transferred to the new dates and a member of the team will be in touch with you over the coming days to discuss any questions you might have.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of the show’s partners for their ongoing understanding and apologise for any disruption that this may have caused. Rest-assured this is not a decision we have taken lightly, but firmly believe it to be the correct one for everyone involved.

We hope you understand the reasoning behind the decision and look forward to working with you in delivering the event that the Channel community deserves in March 2022.
