(UK) – In light of the global impact caused by COVID-19 and following careful consideration, Clerkenwell Design Week will now take place 14 – 16 July 2020.
In a statement the organisers have said that, as one of the UK’s leading independent design festivals, this decision has not been taken lightly, but the health, safety and wellbeing of the show’s visitors, exhibitors, clients and staff is its number one priority.
Agreement has been reached, following productive discussions with Islington Council, to ensure that the new date will deliver the much-loved festival without compromise. All of the show’s suppliers, venues and stakeholders have collaborated to agree this new date and to ensure that the event goes ahead.
“We will continue to consult with all relevant parties on a regular basis as we work towards delivering the best possible CDW this summer,” says Lee Newton, CEO, Media 10. “The safety and wellbeing of all those involved is our priority and we are grateful for the support we have received from our exhibitors and partners in making this difficult decision. We believe that these new dates provide us with an opportunity to deliver what will be a very successful CDW in the height of British Summer.”
