Coronavirus updates from IT SHOWCASE

Updated: 13th April 2020

Manchester, Old Trafford Stadium, 12th May is postponed.

Working with advice from the venue and the government the decision has been made to postpone the Manchester show. The new date for the physical event will be announced asap.

However, as mentioned previously, we’ve launched our virtual event programme which will run on the original event dates of all the shows which we’ve had to postpone.

We’re pleased to be able to offer a source of information for software research in this uncertain time and we encourage you to support the event and register for one of the upcoming dates.

Bad news and better news.

Unsurprisingly, we have had to postpone the Birmingham and Newbury events scheduled for 22nd and 23rd April to later dates to be advised shortly. Sadly, the Manchester event on 12th May is also postponed. That’s the bad news.

The better news, our brilliant team of event organisers are busy creating virtual events, which we hope to be able to present online on the original event dates. We will be trying to replicate the benefits of our normal events as closely as possible but, of course, as we are all learning, you will never replace the experience of face-to-face engagement. That said, we’ll do our best to get as close to the original as possible online and hopefully return to our live event format as soon as it is safe to do so.

Updated 17th March 2020

We continue to follow the advice of the government and public health England, which unfortunately leaves us not knowing whether venues will be open for business on the dates of our events or not. Our next events are on 22nd and 23rd of April and we hope to receive definitive advice ASAP, which will allow us to make plans accordingly. We will use this post to continually update our position, so please copy the page link to your browser

Earlier this week I had to make one of the hardest business decisions I have had to make for many a year. We were all looking forward to visiting Glasgow on 24th March but, with several exhibitors banned from travel and a general sentiment of uncertainty in the air, postponing itSHOWCASE Glasgow to 15th September seemed like the best decision for all concerned.

Moving forward, our policy will be to continue to stage our events, wherever possible, on the dates originally planned. However, should we consider it necessary to postpone more events, we will endeavour to do so in a timely manner and arrange alternative dates as soon as possible.

These are difficult times and we will follow the advice of government and health professionals in assessing the potential risk in staging our events with the best interests of our staff, clients and delegates in mind.


Keep an eye our website

Our website is the first place we’ll use to make announcements about forthcoming events, so please keep an eye on our homepage. Our social media channels will also contain the latest information.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our itSHOWCASE stakeholders, venues, marketing partners, exhibitors and delegates for their on-going support.

I’ll see you at itSHOWCASE near you soon.

Kind Regards



Steve Jones
Managing Director
