eWorld Procurement & Supply moves to 1st March 2022.
Revolution Events confirms postponement of UK’s leading procurement technology event.
With many still cautious about attending face-to-face events, Revolution Events has made the difficult decision to postpone the Autumn edition of eWorld Procurement & Supply until the coming Spring.
Our Autumn event was shaping up to be another fantastic outing despite the ongoing disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. We have, however a primary duty of care towards the safety of our delegates, exhibitors, sponsors, staff and speakers. We are also determined that eWorld should always deliver a high-quality experience that is not compromised by external factors. So, with just over two short weeks to go until the original planned date and with many people still concerned about meeting face to face, Revolution Events have made the difficult decision to postpone until Spring 2022, rather than risk a slightly more subdued event in the Autumn – however disappointing this may be in the short term. Although the percentage of vaccinated adults is steadily increasing, cases of Covid-19 are also on the rise and as a result, Revolution Events has taken the proactive decision to postpone eWorld Procurement & Supply until Tuesday,1st March 2022.
The decision is a direct response to the climbing number of Covid-19 cases across the UK and the obvious consequences of running a large-scale public gathering combined with an urgent need to finalise arrangements for this major annual event in the procurement and supply chain diary.
Claire Boffey, Group Event Director at Revolution Events said: “I would like to reassure all of our customers that we are constantly monitoring the prevailing health and safety risks for live events and we already have a range of precautions planned to reduce physical contact and proximity at our events, Spring eWorld included, should we need to. As always, we are 100% committed to providing highly productive opportunities for decision makers to learn, meet and do business together – which we will now be doing next March instead of this Autumn.”
Despite this undoubtedly disappointing news, with the support of our fantastic line-up of speakers, we are looking forward to hosting a truly spectacular event on the 1st of March 2022. The programme full to bursting with an incredible array of fascinating keynotes and topical cases studies, not forgetting an impressive showcase of the very best suppliers and solution providers in the procurement and supply sphere. It’ll be the same high-quality event our delegates, sponsors, speakers and exhibitors have come to expect, bi-annually since its inception in 2001.
