The website may still be open but Reed Exhibitions announces abandonment of exhibition:
“It is with regret that due to the current economic trading conditions, Reed Exhibitions has decided not to run Business Continuity Expo 2009. Reed Exhibitions will review in the light of market conditions whether to hold the event from 2010 onwards. Our sincere thanks go to all partners, customers and media who have supported the event over the last two years. If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact Tamar Beck, Group Event Director, tel: +44 (0)20 8910 7884”.
Ironic that one of the first British exhibitions to cancel should be one addressing business continuity.
Exhibitions across the spectrum of business and leisure that have opened during the last six months have faced reduced take up of stand space, reduced stand sizes and reduced attendence figures.
