Busworld Europe 2021 cancelled
Trade exhibition Busworld Europe 2021 has been cancelled.
Uncertainty brought about by the pandemic is behind the cancellation.
A statement from the organiser said: “Although the prospects were positive in the beginning of the year, the promised speed of the vaccination campaigns, especially in Europe, were not met at all. And since the preparations to participate to a trade show start at least six months before the actual show takes place, there are too many question marks for our exhibitors.”
The organisers said the decision to cancel the exhibition, now in its 50th year, was made with full support of its main exhibitors.
Some smaller, alternative events might take place in the ‘Busworld period’ of October 2021.
Busworld MD, Mieke Glorieux, said: “Our thoughts go out to the whole industry, who has suffered severely for over a year now. We said it before and we keep saying that we are all in this together! Today we bring you bad news, tomorrow is another day. We are agile. And we’ll be back!”
The next edition of Busworld Europe is scheduled to take place in Brussels from 7 to 12 October 2023.
