Southampton Boat Show 2020

Obviously I'm assuming SBS won't take place this year, but the organisers aren't exactly making an effort to keep us up to date:

https://www.southamptonboatshow.com/...vid-19-update/

The latest update on the website above isn't actually dated, but as it says the show is 6 months away it can't have been updated since March.

Which is a bit rubbish really.

Nasher.

I speak to many exhibitors who clearly feel that they won't be there this year even if they decide to hold it

I'm guessing not cancelling is just a device to hold on to those deposits a little longer????

Good to know, thanks.

Strange that they say postponed and not cancelled. Maybe a deposit or insurance thing.

Guess they will have to postpone the 2021 show as well now, or cancel it, as it will be at the same time

Hopefully they will have one and it doesn't suffer the same fate as some other shows.

Flybe used to do a similar thing with flights although in hindsight it didn't do them much good.

Hmmm, I remember. I had two business related flights that they did that with and vowed never to fly with them again. Obviously not alone on that.
