London Coffee Festival will be postponed until July due to concerns over the global Coronavirus situation.
An official statement has been released by Jeffrey Young, the London Coffee Festival founder and CEO of Allegra Group:
“After a thorough assessment of the current Coronavirus situation in the UK and globally, and in the interest of good event management and the safety of all our stakeholders, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone The London Coffee Festival 2020 to 23–26 July. In order to minimise disruption, all bookings and the full event programme will be automatically transferred to the new dates. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for your continuous commitment and flexibility in these challenging times. We are confident that with your on-going support, LCF 2020 will be a resounding success and a festival well worth the wait.”
The festival attracts more than 30,000 visitors and 250 exhibitors from around the world. This was a decision that Jeffrey Young, the CEO of Allegra Group and founder of the global Coffee Festivals made in a bid to ‘do the right thing’ as opposed to a government-imposed closure on large scale events.
