According to Naidex organiser Roar B2B Media, it took the decision to postpone again after speaking with attendees and exhibitors.

A statement from Roar B2B Media reads: “After extensive consultation with our partners, exhibitors and visitors, we have taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone the event until Spring 2021.

“We will be continuing our support of the independent living community through a number of digital initiatives in the run-up to the March event.”

The announcement continued: “ We welcome any input from our visitors and customers on such initiatives and are proud to be able to support the industry as much as we can through this difficult time. ”

It comes as the majority of events set to take place in 2020 have either been postponed or cancelled, including the OT Show, the Posture and Mobility Group (PMG) Conference, as well as the Kidz to Adultz events.

The Occupational Therapy Adaptations Conference (OTAC) has confirmed that there remaining six shows for 2020 will go ahead as planned, however, citing a need for healthcare professionals to receive in-depth CPD knowledge and discover new solutions to help clients.
