The Triathlon Show: London and the London Bike show have been postponed due to concerns regarding the Coronavirus.
With more positive tests of COVID-19 being reported, the organisers of the shows, which were to be held at London ExCel on March 27-29, and were set to have attracted thousands of visitors to see the latest bikes, kit, innovative triathlon technology and accessories from 200 brands, have decided to push the events back to later in the year.
A statement from Newtimber Media read: “Sadly, it is with great regret that Newtimber Media have to announce today that the London Bike Show and Triathlon Show: London will be postponed until July 3-5, 2020, following the escalation of COVID-19 Coronavirus across Europe and the UK.
“The coronavirus outbreak has been labelled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). The effects are becoming evident across all aspects of our lives here in the UK and across the world. We have been following UK government guidelines and working with the rolling advice from the public health authorities and other organisations, but it is now with reluctance that we have taken the decision to postpone the event at this time.
“The safety and wellbeing of our staff, exhibitors, visitors, partners and contractors is of the utmost importance to us, and therefore feel the protection and prevention of harm to the public has been paramount to this decision.
“We recognise that business has to continue and with this in mind we will continue to support and collaborate with exhibitors and visitors during this difficult period. The London Bike Show and Triathlon Show: London will be back stronger, full steam ahead in July! Thank you to everyone who has supported us at this time.
