Anaesthesia & Critical Care is postponing to 2021

Anaesthesia & Critical Care at ExCel London, November 11-12, Postponed to 2021

LONDON (28 August, 2020) - In light of ongoing developments regarding COVID-19 and extensive consultation with our partners in the medical industry, we are postponing Anaesthesia & Critical Care 2020 to 9-10 November 2021. The 2021 event will continue to be hosted at the ExCel London location.

We have decided to postpone Anaesthesia & Critical Care out of an abundance of caution. We will continue to monitor all developments related to COVID-19 and follow all public health measures set out by the government. The last several months have had a huge impact on both the mental and physical well-being of our community and we are dedicated to protecting the safety of our delegates, sponsors and speakers as our top priority.

“We have been on top of the news and guidelines regarding COVID-19 since day one,” said Matthew Butler, Executive Director. “Our main concern, above all, is the health and safety of everyone involved with Anaesthesia & Critical Care. We have made this decision to postpone based on public health recommendations and discussions with our partners. We know with full certainty that we will put on an extraordinary show once these concerns have been dealt with and our community feels safe again.”

During times like these, it is important to be reminded of the purpose that trade shows and events serve. They are essential to businesses and people all over the world as a way to meet, learn, and collaborate. Events help support businesses of all sizes, and the economy. Our healthcare shows are a platform to support people with shared values and interests, and we will push through any obstacle to fulfill our mission to create these types of opportunities.
