RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 03 September, 2020

Category: Organisation Event
Location: Online
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards ceremonies in London, Birmingham and Glasgow will not be taking place during 2020. As you can imagine, the coronavirus pandemic has impacted our preparations, and it is hard to see how our ceremonies could go ahead when, as the UK Chief Medical Officer has said, some form of social distancing will be needed until at least the end of the year.

We are obviously disappointed because the ceremonies are such a highlight of our year at RoSPA.

But all is not lost! The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2020 is still running and we are planning a virtual ceremony on Thursday, 3rd September 2020 for winners to gather together to celebrate their achievements and we’re looking forward to running further Awards Excellence Forum webinars later in the year.

Award winners are being contacted about this year’s changes, and will have the option to receive their awards through the post in September.

Location: Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre
Southern Manufacturing & Electronics has confirmed that it will be returning to Farnborough International next year on the 20th, 21st and 22nd of April 2021. The show has been rescheduled from its regular dates in February to avoid conflicting with other events postponed from 2020, and to provide the greatest benefit to visitors and exhibitors as they bounce back from the effects of lockdown.

Show director, Phil Valentine said; “The first quarter of the exhibition calendar in 2021 is crowded with events postponed from their 2020 show dates and inevitably this means difficult decisions for exhibitors and visitors alike about how to maximise return on their time and investment over the challenging months ahead. Consequently, and in conjunction with Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, we’ve taken the decision to move the event to April 2021. We believe this decision will allow the show to take place under much more favourable economic and social conditions while also enabling all concerned to plan more effectively towards achieving a rewarding and successful event.”
