The Electronic Component Show (ECS) has announced that this year’s show will be rescheduled to 2021, following the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United Kingdom.

Now due to take place on Thursday 20th May 2021, the organiser’s decision to move the event back a full year stems from a large number of shows already being postponed until late Q3 and Q4 of 2020. In what is already a busy time of the year for shows, and with the health and safety of visitors and exhibitors the number one priority, the postponement of the show by a year will ensure safety and give the industry time to deal with these unprecedented circumstances.

All pre-registrations and exhibitors will automatically be transferred over to the 2021 event; and in June, the show will be providing a tabloid ECS edition containing written presentations of the seminars that were due to take place and information about the exhibitors. If you are a registered reader of Electronics Sourcing UK or you were pre-registered for the event, you will receive a free copy.

The Electronic Component Show is the latest in a long line of events to postpone to 2021. With the uncertainty of the future and the long-lasting effects of the UK lockdown, it’s no doubt that this is a wise decision, and we look forward to seeing the success of the show in 2021.
