BETT 2021 is the latest in-person trade show to be canceled — but is preparing virtual content in the show’s absence.
The organization released the following statement:
“After exhaustive conversations with our customers and visitors, as a consequence of changing government restrictions following the significant escalation of Covid-19 cases in the UK, we have reached the view that we have no option but to cancel Bett 2021.
The next in-person Bett show will take place on 19-21 January 2022 at ExCeL London.
Whilst we are devastated that we won’t be returning to ExCeL in January 2021, we recognise the urgent need to bring the education and technology community together to learn from this past year and to prepare for the future. We will therefore be launching several days of virtual content this coming January, featuring product showcases, practical CPD, strategic insights and much more. Further information will be shared in the coming weeks.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding throughout this difficult and uncertain time. We can’t wait for the time we can safely bring you all together again in person.”
