This year’s Pharmacy Show has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and will instead take place on October 17-18 2021 at the Birmingham NEC.
Event organisers CloserStill Media said that in the meantime they will be focusing on how they can support the pharmacist profession during the Covid-19 crisis
National Pharmacy Association chief executive Mark Lyonette said: “The Pharmacy Show is an important event in the pharmacy calendar and one which our members look forward to attending. Unfortunately, this year they will miss on the expert opinion, networking and support they get from this well organised conference and exhibition.
“I’m sure the decision to postpone this year’s show has not been taken lightly and we look forward to working with CloserStill for the event in 20201.”
Event director Garry Tyson said: “In difficult times like the one that affects us today across the globe, it is important to remember the primary objective of trade shows: a trade show is above all the opportunity for the market to meet, learn and collaborate together. The safety of our communities is of paramount importance.
“The events industry supports businesses of all sizes and the economy in general. The Pharmacy Show is part of this and we will overcome all obstacles so our annual meeting fulfils this mission, stronger together. We would like to thank you for your patience and continued support during these difficult times and trust you and your families are safe and well.”
More information will be made available on the Pharmacy Show website.
