It is, with the greatest disappointment, that we wish to advise you that after many months effort in the background, we are now faced with the only option open to us, that is, to cancel Autumn Gift & Home for 2020.
Citywest Convention Centre was taken over by the Health Service Executive and our normal venue was, therefore, not available to us. We then provisionally moved our Event to the Main Hall of the RDS with planned dates of 13-15 September.
In light of Covid -19, along with other organisers in the Irish Exhibition Organisers Association, we prepared a detailed Roadmap and set of protocols for Safe Exhibitions in Ireland, that matches, and indeed exceeds, those in other countries. Regretfully, despite IBEC/SFA intervention we have been unable to get any Government clarity on the situation about the resumption of controlled Trade Events in Ireland and consequently we have no choice but to make the decision we have made.
On a much more positive note, the Good News is that we look forward to welcoming you back to Citywest in 2021 and our dates for next year are 22-25 August 2021.
Normality will return, and so will your favourite trade show!
