Why is the event moving?

Whilst Boris Johnson has given the exhibitions industry a restart date (1 October); sadly, the venue is unable to confirm it will be able to stage the event, and there has now been too much time lost in the planning stages for the event to go ahead and deliver the kind of result we would expect it to. We feel at this stage it is better to protect the investment of exhibitors and start planning for October 2021, when we feel the country will be much better equipped in dealing with the virus and people will feel more confident about attending exhibitions.

What will happen in October 2020 now?

The whole working week, Monday 5- Friday 9th October 2020 will be host to a number of online events. These will be keynote presentations, panel debates and webinars all hosted online. There will also be opportunities for product supplier and customers to meet and do business online.

I have booked travel and/or hotel for the show, is there any compensation to cover this?

Unfortunately, we are unable to cover travel costs. You may want to contact your provider directly to discuss amending your booking to the new dates. Given the circumstances and lack of government guidelines around events at this stage, we believe most hotels will be open to moving your booking to 2021 rather than risk losing your business.

How do I register for the event?

Registration is free for all trade professionals. You can register your interest here and we will send you an email when the registration is live.

Does my UK Construction Week pass get me into Grand Designs Live?

Your UK Construction Week (UKCW) pass gets you free access into Grand Designs Live.
