Southern Manufacturing & Electronics to take place in April 2021

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics has confirmed that it will be returning to Farnborough International next year on the 20th, 21st and 22nd of April 2021. The show has been rescheduled from its regular dates in February to avoid conflicting with other events postponed from 2020, and to provide the greatest benefit to visitors and exhibitors as they bounce back from the effects of lockdown.
Show director, Phil Valentine said: “The first quarter of the exhibition calendar in 2021 is crowded with events postponed from their 2020 show dates and inevitably this means difficult decisions for exhibitors and visitors alike about how to maximise return on their time and investment over the challenging months ahead. Consequently, and in conjunction with Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, we’ve taken the decision to move the event to April 2021. We believe this decision will allow the show to take place under much more favourable economic and social conditions while also enabling all concerned to plan more effectively towards achieving a rewarding and successful event.”
The floorplan of Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2021 will remain unchanged. Unprecedented re-bookings following the record-breaking 2020 event mean the show is already close to capacity, although some space still remains for firms wishing to take part.
