Following the recent news that the NEC, Birmingham is being repurposed into a temporary NHS ‘Nightingale’ Hospital for patients with Coronavirus we have made the tough decision to move the British Tourism & Travel Show to the 24-25 March 2021.
With the NEC taking on an important role to help support the NHS during this national emergency, we had no other option but to delay the show until later this year.
We appreciate how hugely important BTTS is to the thousands of businesses that regularly visit and exhibit – including leading tour and travel organisers, GTOs, coach operators, hotels, visitor attractions, DMOs and popular destinations across the UK and Ireland. These businesses – many of which are now closed due to the COVID-19 restrictions – have been hugely affected. It has therefore now become clear that the best and most responsible decision for everyone involved is to wait and host even better show next year.
This industry is resilient, and we know that we’ll all continue to support each other through this, over the coming months. The BTTS team would like to thank everyone – our exhibitors, visitors, speakers and partners – for their continued support and patience, and we look forward to seeing you all at the show on 24-25 March 2021.
