​Covid concerns see London Textile Fair postponed until March

Dec 23, 2021

The (TLTF), due to take place next month, has now been delayed until March, with its organisers citing uncertainty over the spread of the latest Coronavirus variant. Almost 250 exhibitors had registered to show at TLTF in January.

The event is now scheduled to take place on 22-23 March at Islington’s Business Design Centre in north London. 

In a statement, the event organisers said: “As we are all aware, the situation in the UK is very uncertain, due to the strong surge of the new coronavirus variant. The UK government has recently imposed new restrictions, which include the advice of working from home whenever possible. We also expect the government to impose further, more stringent restrictions, before the end of the year. 

The statement added: “Unfortunately, we have to face the reality that even if all our exhibitors will be allowed to travel to the fair, visitors will still be under the instruction to work from home, and not able to attend the event.

"We really feel this is the best decision for everyone involved with the fair and we appreciate your continued support and understanding." 

Exhibitors will be contacted by the show's organisers with further information about the updated event plans.
