New dates for ScotPlant 2020 show

In view of the escalating coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, ScotPlant 2020 has been rescheduled for September 25th and 26 ththis year, organisers have said. “The exhibition was due to take place at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, on April 24th and 25th. However, after monitoring events closely in recent days, including plans to curtail mass gathering events in Scotland and growing concern around the spread of the virus, we have reluctantly taken the decision to postpone the show until later in the year."

Organisers went on to say, “We appreciate that this decision will impact on organisations and visitors’ travel plans and schedules. However, the health, safety and wellbeing of all ScotPlant attendees has to be our number one priority and we hope people will understand why we have had to take this course of action in the face of unprecedented circumstances. By moving the event to September, we are confident that we will be able to deliver the same fantastic experience as always, rather than risk uncertainty by holding it in April when the coronavirus situation could still be unclear.”

The exhibition will run for the usual two-day duration over Friday September 25th and Saturday September 26th. The opening hours will be identical, and organisers will honour all existing stand sizes and locations on the site map. If you have already registered for the event you will not need to reregister.
