ACOS is set to return this year at a brand new venue in London’s West End, offering exhibitors the first chance to network in person post-pandemic.
ACOS 2021 is set to be the first post-pandemic UK industry gathering, after organisers confirmed that the event will take place on 20-21 October in London.
The trade show, which was forced to cancel last year due to travel and distancing regulation, will welcome guests at the ILEC Conference Centre, IBIS London Earls Court.
“We are very excited to be back and in particular to announce the new venue,” said event director Karen Cooke. “It is wonderful to find a venue in the West End that provides good exhibit space and a setting so well suited for the relaxed and sociable style that ACOS has become known for.”
And the industry is getting excited as Cooke noted: “The response from exhibitors has been overwhelming and the show is already sold out.”
Updating exhibitors and visitors, ACOS stated the ILEC conference centre has been extensively refurbished offering “an ideal space with good access, transport links and onsite parking.”
With the exhibition hall located within the IBIS Hotel, rooms are also available allowing participants to stay onsite and special rates have been negotiated, with details found on the ACOS website.
“I am also pleased to announce that the venue has its own “Pub” which means that the show can continue after hours,” added Cooke. “We will be holding a reception on Wednesday evening between 6pm-8pm and all attendees are welcome.”
“We hope that ACOS 2021 will provide an early and much needed opportunity for suppliers and operators to regroup and move forward.”
