The annual motorhome and caravan show at the NEC in Birmingham, which normally takes place every October, has been cancelled for 2020.

NCC Events, the organiser of the October NEC show, said that it had taken the decision to cancel following extensive consultation. It confirmed that next year, the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2021 will take place between 12 – 17 October 2021.

It cited various reasons for cancelling this year’s show, including the ban on mass gatherings with no indication of when this may be lifted and the difficulty of operating the Motorhome & Caravan Show under the Covid-safe protocols. It also said that the predicted reduced public attendance based on a visitor survey was also a factor.

“NCC Events faced a very difficult decision. The postponement at this stage maximises the chances to both protect the health and well-being of attendees (exhibitor staff and visitors) and also the financial viability of our exhibitors and the show itself,” said John Lally, CEO of NCC Events. “All visitors and exhibitors are entitled to a full refund of monies paid for tickets and stand costs. This gives the opportunity for exhibitors to recover any secondary costs and in turn allows NCC Events the best opportunity to hold a successful show in 2021. We know the Motorhome & Caravan show plays a critically important role in the achievement of retail sales each season.  To this end we are working on initiatives to help and support the showcasing of the 2021 new-season products.”

NCC Events team said its focus is now on delivering a successful Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show, which will take place on 23 – 28 February 2021.
