Making Pharmaceuticals - Covid-19 Statement

20 March 2020


New Dates Announced for Making Pharmaceuticals 26-27th October 2020

With concern escalating over the Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19); the announcement by the Prime Minister regarding the need for social distancing; and following consultation, we have concluded that it is in the best interest of all parties to reschedule Making Pharmaceuticals.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we believe that the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority. The new dates for Making Pharmaceuticals are 26-27 October 2020 at the Ricoh Arena.

The latest developments have significantly increased the concerns of participating companies about the health of their employees. Step Exhibitions has the same concerns, having the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, partners and staff as our number one priority.

It has not been easy to secure a tenancy options as many events in the UK calendar as also looking to reschedule. We were also keen to secure the same facilities to minimise any further disruption to the layout and format of Making Pharmaceuticals.

And we are mindful of the international calendar – making it prudent to avoid the week that CPHi takes place.

This decision to reschedule has taken this into account and has been made following consultation with a number of key supporting organisations about suitable action which is in the overall interests of exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and other stakeholders to determine the best outcome for all.

We believe in the circumstances that new dates will provide the best opportunity for our exhibitors, sponsors and attendees to do business and we are confident that these new dates will deliver an excellent alternative timing, and enable us to offer a successful event for everyone involved.

All exhibition bookings, delegate bookings, awards dinner bookings and visitor pre-registrations will be transferred automatically to the new dates and there will be further communication to all groups over the coming weeks to ensure that everyone is aware of this change in dates. Our aim is to facilitate a smooth transition.
