Organiser of trade show Kbb Birmingham Informa has made the decision to close the Chinese pavilion, and instead offer an online presence to the Far East companies.
In a statement, Kbb Birmingham said it wished to reassure visitors, customers and colleagues their health and safety is always the top priority and the show would continue to go ahead.
Registrations for the show are reported, by Informa, to be ahead year-on-year with the highest recorded registrations received last week.
The show said it continues to follow all safety advice and precautions, as recommended by the UK’s Department of Health and Social Care and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as well as the World Health Organisation (WHO).
And it recommended attendees “maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene.”
VP of Kbb Birmingham Dana Teague commented: “Top priority is ensuring the safest and most enjoyable experience.
“We look forward to kbb and forecast this year’s edition to be among the largest and most well-attended.”
Kbb Birmingham is the UK’s largest dedicated trade show for kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms.
The biennial show takes place at the NEC in March 1-4 and expects around 15,000 visitors to the event.
