Following the announcement that Naidex has postponed its event as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the organisers have confirmed the show will now take place in November 2020.

Originally set to take place on the 17th and 18th of March, Naidex confirmed last week that it was pushing back the event in response to growing safety concerns regarding COVID-19.

“This includes all events co-located with Naidex including Smart Home for Assisted Living, Dementia, Care & Nursing Home, Home Care Expo, Care Tech Live, European Neuro Convention, Medical Imaging Convention, European Oncology Convention and AI&ML Convention.

“Like many large event organisers, this has been a complex situation and difficult for everyone involved. We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our exhibitors, speakers and partners for their messages of support.

“We very much look forward to welcoming you all later in the year.”

The event postponement until late in the year will come as a blow to trade professionals keen to get their ranges in front of retailers ahead of the summertime when mobility aids, particularly in the lucrative lightweight travel segment, will be in highest demand.

Recently, Motion Healthcare confirmed it was hosting a spring launch event on the 17th March to ensure mobility dealers still have an opportunity to see new products in the spring ahead of the busy summer trading period.

After the initial postponement announcement, retailers and suppliers shared their thoughts on the delay, however, now the date is known, THIIS is inviting the trade to share their thoughts on the move. Get in touch with THIIS by contacting editor Calvin Barnett at calvin@thiis.co.uk
