2020 Colva Annual Showcase Cancellation – Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

After careful consideration regarding the health and safety of our attendees, our employees, and exhibitors – we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Colva Annual Showcase, scheduled for Wednesday 16th September 2020. We have also ruled out the possibly of hosting the showcase at a future date this year.

The Colva team had hoped it would be possible to hold the event this year, however despite the encouraging progress that is being made towards the UK’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clear that running a large event this coming September will not be possible while sufficiently protecting the health and safety of all those involved.

Ashley Fernandes, Managing Director of Colva, said:

“We appreciate that the cancellation of the event will come as a huge disappointment to many involved, especially our attendees who really look forward to this event each year. However, no matter how passionate we are about hosting the event, we must mindful of the bigger picture and the safety of everyone involved and hope that all concerned will understand our decision. We encourage everyone to adhere to the Government requirements on social distancing and guidance on good hygiene, and hope that by 2021 we are safely able, once again, to host one of the best events in the IT industry calendar”.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our attendees and exhibitors for their continued support. The Colva team wishes you a safe and healthy remainder to 2020 and we look forward to welcoming our attendees to the next Colva Annual Showcase in 2021.
