Vertikal Days moved to September

By Euan Youdale24 February 2021

Crane and access equipment exhibition Vertikal Days has been postponed until September.

Originally due to take place 12-13 May this year, the show has been moved to September following the UK government’s recently announced guidelines for the easing of Covid-19 lockdown rules in England. Under the four-step plan Vertikal Days will not be able to take place during May.

As a result, the show is now set for 22-23 September, at the East of England Showground in Peterborough, UK.

In a letter to exhibitors the show organiser said, “[On 22 February] the UK Prime Minister laid out the road map and plan for England’s emergence from the Covid-19 lockdown, clearly outlining the steps to be taken over the next five to six months.

“Whilst we have been deliberating since the start of the year on whether visitors would be ready and fully confident to attend a May event, [the] announcement clearly indicates that our May dates will be all but unworkable.”

Vertikal Days’ organiser added, “We will of course continue to monitor developments over the next few months and will step up our efforts to gather the views and feedback from both exhibitors and visitors.

“The feedback we have already received from a good number of you, gives us great confidence that holding the event in September will be successful. As organisers, we will be working closely with the East of England Showground to put everything in place to ensure a Covid safe show, which might mean that some things will need to be done a little differently, but not so differently as to destroy the soul and spirit of Vertikal Days.”
