UK - PLASA has announced the postponement of the 2020 PLASA Show due to the COVID-19 crisis. The popular trade event was set to take place on 6-8 September at London Olympia.
The Association says in a statement: “It is with great regret that we announce that PLASA Show will not take place at Olympia London from 6-8 September this year due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and uncertainty regarding social distancing and lockdown policies. However, PLASA Show will return to Olympia London in 2021 from 5-7 September and we look forward to seeing you there.
“We hope that by the time PLASA Show 2021 comes around the industry will be restored back to full health and we can celebrate with a fantastic ‘come-back’ show, face to face. In the meantime, keep safe and in keep in touch. ”
Sophie Atkinson, head of events at PLASA, comments: “It is of course very disappointing to have to postpone PLASA Show this year which would have been the first in Olympia’s Grand Hall. But I am in no doubt that it is the right thing to do for the industry at this challenging time. We will sorely miss PLASA Show this year and look forward to being able to meet you in London from 5-7 September 2021.”
PLASA’s managing director Peter Heath comments: “We are all hugely aware of how the events industry is suffering, and as it stands there is no end in sight. PLASA is focussing all its efforts into supporting the industry and we invite you to join the cause so we can all enjoy concerts, theatre shows and festivals long into the future.”
During the pandemic, PLASA has been supporting its members and the wider industry through government lobbying, research, and cross-industry collaboration. Find out more about the organisation’s activity at
