ALL-Energy, the UK’s largest annual renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference, is now scheduled to take place on May 12-13, 2021 at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC).
The SEC said: “The SEC has now concluded a licence extension with the Scottish Government to extend the tenancy period for NHS Louisa Jordan until 30 April.
“The extension accommodates an appropriate decommissioning period which allows full reinstatement to be made to the venue followed by a thorough clean. SEC will be back as a fully operational event venue from 1 May 2021.”
Peter Bloor, All-Energy event director of Reed Exhibitions, said: “Naturally, without access to SEC we are unable to hold All-Energy and Dcarbonise in November and we have therefore postponed the duo of events until May 2021 after having consulted our exhibitors and key stakeholders. NHS Louisa Jordan is doing fantastic work both as a centre for outpatients and as a training facility.
“We believe that postponing the show until May, six months before COP26, the UN’s Climate Change Summit (also at SEC), will enable us to deliver the true value of this industry-leading event.
“We will be marking the show’s November 2020 dates by holding the first ever ‘All-Energy / Dcarbonise 2020 Virtual Summit’, an event which has the support of the Scottish Government.
“This is in addition to the monthly series of free webinars we have been hosting since May 2020, a programme that has now attracted 10,322 registrations for 13 webinars across a broad range of topics. This has resulted in over 6,500 unique viewers ‘on the day’ or using the ‘on-demand’ service.
“We are delighted by this level of interest and uptake, and thank our chairs, panellists and sponsors for their contributions and enthusiastic support. We have already reached the equivalent commitment in numbers to our usual face-to-face event; and that will be surpassed by the remaining webinars from September onwards (not forgetting the inaugural Summit too).
“Naturally, in the ‘new normal’ the health and safety of our exhibitors, speakers, visitors, and staff will remain our number one priority and we will stage next May’s show with their health and safety very much in mind. Reed Exhibitions has developed a formal set of enhanced health and safety protocols in collaboration with industry task forces for our future events.
“We would like to thank our exhibitors, speakers, partners, suppliers, visitors and of course the SEC for their continuing support during this challenging time.”
