n light of the COVID-19 outbreak, The Schoolwear Show Board has issued the following statement to all exhibitors regarding the upcoming event. “Firstly, the organisers of The Schoolwear Show hope that you and all your staff are safe and well. We find ourselves in unprecedented times, both personally and commercially, with a lot of uncertainty at the moment. “However, we must plan for the future while trying to get through the present. Following a meeting of the directors of The Schoolwear Show, there are a few

actions and decisions that we have taken.

“There are several companies that have already booked space at the October 2020 show and paid deposits. We will arrange to send those deposit payments back to you; we believe that money is currently better served in your business than with us. Please send your bank details to Cath Gibson to start this process.

“All companies that have booked stands at the October 2020 show will retain the positions they have booked without the need, for now, of having to pay a deposit.

“Because the situation is so fast-moving but currently without any idea of when it may end, we will review the future of the October 2020 show on a month by month basis. We will advise when and if any further decisions are made.

“Our collective view is that a show in October would provide a much- needed confidence boost for the industry; bringing together retailers, manufacturers, reps and agents to plan for the future. So, that is what we are currently planning for.

“Please stay safe and well. By the industry working together, we will get through this and out the other side.”

The Schoolwear Show 2020 is scheduled to take place at Cranmore Park in Solihull on from October 11 to 13.
