Accountex London has been postponed until 11-12 May 2022 due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Event director Zoe Lacey-Cooper said: “Although there are positive signs that large scale events will be able to restart in the coming months, the current restrictions in place still pose a huge challenge to running Accountex London in May this year. As always, our priority is safety, and we feel that there are still too many issues in 2021 for us to be able to deliver the event.

“We want to make the right decision for the whole sector as well as our attendees. And after consulting with our partners, we’ve decided the best action for everyone involved is to move the show to May 2022.

“We also want to ensure that our exhibitors, visitors, speakers and partners have a successful experience at Accountex London. We’re committed to delivering a show that provides the industry with the most effective opportunities for networking, education, discovery and interaction – and we’re confident the move to 2022 will best enable us to do this.

“Finally, we’re so grateful for the incredible goodwill and support this industry has shown us during these difficult times. We’re looking forward to working together over the coming year to ensure that Accountex continues to be the celebration and gathering the industry deserves and can be proud of. And more than anything, we look forward to seeing you – in person – as soon as possible.”

Accountex London will be held at Excel London. The convention centre was temporarily converted last year to London’s NHS Nightingale to accommodate Covid-19 patients.
