CCR 2020, as part of events company Easyfairs, has been postponed until October 14 and 15 next year.
Easyfairs explains that the company has been closely following and monitoring all advice and recommendations about COVID-19 from the World Health Organisation and from local governments, and that the safety of delegates is its top priority.
Alison Willis, divisional director of Easyfairs’ Aesthetics portfolio, commented, “We were very much expecting that the world would be open for business in order for the Autumn 2020 edition of CCR to be able to go ahead, especially after the green light had been given by the UK Government to run events back in July. However, as the situation continues to evolve, we have been in close consultation with the aesthetics community and all stakeholders in the event regarding their concerns around bringing the entire community together face to face at this time. Taking into account the global situation, the social distancing restrictions currently being imposed on live events and the requirements of our exhibitors, we have made the extremely difficult decision to have to postpone this year’s edition to 2021.”
She continued, “During this difficult and unprecedented time, I have been overwhelmed by the support that we have from the community for the event and its critical role in bringing the industry together. We know that CCR and its sister event ACE – that takes place in March 2021 – will both play a vital part in the economic recovery and we look forward to continuing to work closely with the aesthetics community to steer the industry out of the crisis and to a strong future. I would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone for their unwavering support and understanding and express our ongoing commitment to the incredible businesses in this sector.”
