The organisers of UKIFDA EXPO 2021, the UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association, have continued to monitor the situation in relation to COVID-19.
Following the UK government’s recent national lockdown announcement, they have taken the decision to move the event from 19 & 20 May to 7 & 8 July 2021 at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool.
Chief executive Guy Pulham announced: “As you are all aware, COVID-19 is still presenting an unprecedented challenge with the situation evolving weekly. Changing the date was not an easy decision to take, but by doing so, we believe it helps ensure confidence in the event for our exhibitors and attendees.
“We wanted to move the date to a time when more people will be vaccinated and restrictions lifted so the news last week about the increased number of vaccinations allied to the government’s vaccination timetable means July will be an ideal time for the industry to get together for some much-needed networking.”
He added: “We have lots planned for UKIFDA EXPO 2021 including a great line up of speakers together with both new and long-standing exhibitors in place. By moving the date to July, it gives our liquid fuels distribution industry a great opportunity to discuss and showcase the transition to liquid biofuels highlighted in the recently published UKIFDA decarbonisation strategy document available on our website.”
