SOLEX 2021 cancelled

by | Mar 9, 2021 | Associations, Community, News | 0 comments

The Leisure & Outdoor Furniture Association (LOFA) has taken the decision to cancel this year’s SOLEX Exhibition after much discussion with its members, exhibitors and registered visitors.

The next SOLEX will now take place at the NEC from 12-14 July 2022. A statement from LOFA says: “Every year we look forward to connecting with exhibitors, buyers and industry professionals and although there are positive signs that events may be able to restart sometime this year, thanks to the Government’s “way forward” plan, the current restrictions will compound the challenges faced in organising this event, and unlike other exhibitions we are unable to move the SOLEX Show to a later date in the year, because of the long lead times required for orders.

“We wanted to make the right decision for everyone involved and we did not want to continue with a show that would not be up to our customary high standards and so have decided not to run SOLEX in 2021 but move the exhibition to July 2022 when we can come back bigger, better and hopefully COVID free.”

For the second year in a row, a virtual SOLEX is being planned for this summer. LOFA says it will share its plans for this over the coming weeks.
