ORGANISERS of Subsea Expo have decided to postpone the event due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.
Subsea UK announced today that the three-day conference and exhibition will instead take place on 25-27 May 2021.
Neil Gordon, Subsea UK chief executive, said postponing the event was the “sensible thing to do” and he “appreciated it will be disappointing for exhibitors and sponsors”.
The world’s largest underwater engineering event was shaping up to be the sector’s first post-pandemic, large scale physical event.
Mr Gordon said: ” At the time of setting the February dates, we were confident that the worst of the global pandemic would be behind us. Given the current situation with COVID cases rising and restrictions being re-imposed rather than lifting, we seem to be going backwards and the ability to host a large-scale event in late February next year is becoming increasingly unlikely.”
