I have booked travel and/or hotel for the show, is there any compensation to cover this?

Unfortunately, we are unable to cover travel costs. You may want to contact your provider directly to discuss amending your booking to the new dates. Given the circumstances and lack of government guidelines around events at this stage, we believe most hotels will be open to moving your booking to 2021 and 2022 rather than risk losing your business. 

How do I register for the event?

Registration is free for all trade professionals.
