In a statement circulated today, Salon International announced the postponement of the exhibition which was originally due to run from the 10th-12th of October.
Executive Director of Hairdressers Journal, Jayne Lewis-Orr commented; “When the UK Government gave exhibitions the ‘go’ date in July, we were very excited and worked tirelessly to create an environment that was safe and would allow us to provide the inspiration and education the show is renowned for. However, that original announcement has not been matched with a practical commitment by the authorities; meaning that we may have been forced to cancel the October event at short notice. We are not prepared to put our visitors or our exhibitors through unnecessary cost and inconvenience, with the genuine prospect of last-minute cancellation.”
Salon International 2021 will take place on October 16-18th at the London ExCel .
