PLASA Show postponed to 2021 with new dates announced

It is with great regret that PLASA announces that the PLASA Show will not take place at Olympia London from 6-8 September this year due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and uncertainty regarding social distancing and lockdown policies. However, PLASA Show will return to Olympia London in 2021 from 5-7 September.

PLASA’s head of events Sophie Atkinson comments: “It is of course very disappointing to have to postpone PLASA Show this year which would have been the first in Olympia’s Grand Hall. But I am in no doubt that it is the right thing to do for the industry at this challenging time. We will sorely miss PLASA Show this year and look forward to being able to meet you in London from 5-7 September 2021.”

Behind the scenes, PLASA the association is working hard to support its members and the wider industry through government lobbying, research, and cross-industry collaboration.

PLASA’s managing director Peter Heath comments: “We are all hugely aware of how the events industry is suffering, and as it stands there is no end in sight. PLASA is focussing all its efforts into supporting the industry and we invite you to join the cause so we can all enjoy concerts, theatre shows and festivals long into the future.”

PLASA hopes that by the time the PLASA Show 2021 comes around the industry will be restored back to full health and can celebrate with a fantastic ‘come-back’ show, face to face. In the meantime, keep safe and in keep in touch.
