The organisers of Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo, Roar B2B have postponed the event for a third time due to the pandemic.
The event, which was due to take place at the NEC in Birmingham on 9-10 March, has now been moved to 15-16 September.
“We have been in consultation with various government departments and whilst the rollout of the vaccine has given the country much needed optimism, we have been advised that we will be unable to host the event in the spring,” Roar B2B said in a statement.
“The safety of our visitors, customers, partners and staff is paramount. We are confident that moving the event to September will enable us to run the safe, successful event the industry demands,” it added.
Roar B2B will hold a digital version of Dementia, Care & Nursing Home taking place on 9-10 March.
The event will provide a “digital meeting place, world class speaking sessions and access to the latest products and services”, it said.
The Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo was initially scheduled for 17-18 March 2020 before being postponed for the first time to 9-10 November.
