Further to recent updates from the UK Government, World Health Organisation and meetings with industry experts. We have taken the decision to move the date of the Awards Ceremony for the North West Business awards to the 18th September 2020.
The event will still go ahead as planned at the Lowry Hotel and all tickets will be transferred to the new date. This decision has come forced on us as an event due to the increasing changing situation regarding COVID-19.
We take the health and safety of our guests and entrants seriously and as a North West wide event, we have a duty of care to all our attendees. Following specialist advice and with support from the Lowry Hotel, the best decision available at present is to hold the event on the 3rd July 2020 during the summer months where there is an expectation based on current models that the risk to attendees may be lower.
This has been followed up by many major events across the UK on the 13th March 2020 all announcing that they will be taking similar actions of postponing and moving the dates of sporting, business and leisure events to safeguard their attendees.
We welcome the positive reaction we have had from many companies already who are aware that this has been a difficult decision for the event organising committee and we look forward to welcoming all attendees to the Lowry Hotel on Friday the 18th of September 2020.
