General Election prompts ABTT Theatre Show change of dates

UK - Due to the General Election being held on Thursday 8th June, The ABTT Theatre Show will now take place on Tuesday 6th June and Wednesday 7th June.

Last year, the EU Referendum took place on the second day of the exhibition with the result that visitor attendance was lower than what would have been expected. In addition, Alexandra Palace is used by the London Borough of Haringey for election counts, so there were a few ‘logistical challenges’! "As organisers, it is our commitment to look after exhibitors and visitors alike," said the ABTT's David Mayo.

"The cornerstone of the ABTT Theatre Show is the networking opportunity for operators in the live performance industry in the UK. Voting in a General Election is more important than business networking and predictably, we have had an overwhelmingly positive response to our pro-active proposal to open the exhibition on the Tuesday 6th June. The full programme of events and attractions at the show will be announced as soon as our own reshuffle is complete."

Registration is free and the link can be found on the ABTT Theatre Show Facebook page as well as on www.abtttheatreshow.co.uk
