Salon International Postponed for the First Time in 47 Years
For the first time since 1973, Salon International will not be taking place in 2020. The organisers, who had been working towards running the exhibition which normally attracts visitors from across the UK and overseas, have announced their reluctant decision to postpone the event which was due to run from 10th– 12th October 2020.
“When the UK Government gave exhibitions the ‘go’ date in July, we were very excited and worked tirelessly to create an environment that was safe and would allow us to provide the inspiration and education the show is renowned for. However, that original announcement has not been matched with a practical commitment by the authorities; meaning that we may have been forced to cancel the October event at short notice. We are not prepared to put our visitors or our exhibitors through unnecessary cost and inconvenience, with the genuine prospect of a last-minute cancellation,” commented Executive Director of Hairdressers Journal, Jayne Lewis-Orr.
The Salon International show dates are booked for next year – October 16 – 18th2021 – at ExCeL London.
