Due to take place on 13 and 14 May, the event at the Donington motor racing circuit in the English Midlands will be moved to a date yet to be confirmed. The organiser said possible alternative dates have already been reserved at the same venue. A final decision will be made according to the way the pandemic develops over the next two to three weeks, during which time consultations will be held with exhibitors and visitors.

“Based on previous periods of crisis, once everyone is satisfied that we are all well past the worst of it, and life begins to settle down, all those involved with lifting, and working at height will want to meet up, talk about the return to normal business and even look at the latest new product developments, in a relaxed atmosphere,” the organiser said.

Look out here for an update when new dates are announced. Other news on the impact of the coronavirus on the construction industry and equipment manufacturers is regularly updated here.
