The annual ARLA Propertymark conference and exhibition, which wasn’t held at all last year because of Coronavirus, has been pushed back yet again.
The event - regarded as one of the very best on the property industry calendar - was originally scheduled for March 2020, then put off to September, and moved yet again to April 21 2021.
Now it’s off again until near the very end of this year - although the one constant is that it’s still going to be held at London’s ExCel.
An ARLA Propertymark statement says: “Following the government’s recent announcement of a national lockdown in England and announcements across the UK reflecting the continued uncertainty we are all facing as a result of the pandemic, we have taken the decision to postpone ARLA Propertymark Conference & Exhibition to 7 December 2021.”
It continues: “Our hope is that by pushing the event back to much later in the year, we will all be in a position to safely come together for an informative and successful event. We can confirm that all existing conference registrations for delegates will be automatically transferred to the new conference date.“
A wide range of conferences and exhibitions in 2020 were postponed, or went virtual with mixed results and usually much-reduced attendances.
