UPDATE ON EI Live! 2020

Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, EI Live! has been postponed to October 21-22, 2020. Still taking place at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, visitor registration remains open so you can still register for later in the year and if you have registered already, there is no need to do so again. See you in October!

In conjunction with the Farnborough International we are currently monitoring the situation regarding Coronavirus and are following the guidelines as issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Everyone should note that the main message from Public Health England is on personal hygiene, therefore staff, exhibitors and visitors are also encouraged to maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene by employing the ‘Catch It. Bin It. Kill It’ ethos.


The Show

Marking its tenth year in the market, EI Live! 2020 is returning with an expanded format covering three related and inter-connected sectors giving exhibitors and visitors a unique opportunity to explore existing relationships fully, but also create brand new ones.

Following recent developments the decision has been made to move EI Live! 2020 to the new dates of October 21-22, 2020. All other aspects of the show will remain the same and the show team is also looking into moving the presentation of the Smart Building Awards to during EI Live! to October, as was planned for the April show date. Registration remains open and those who have registered already do not need to reapply for their free entry pass.

These October dates were given to us by the venue as they have many shows in the same situation, we believe they actually work pretty well. September will be a busy month given that the CEDIA tech Summit has been postponed to September 4 and the CEDIA US Expo dates are September 8 – 12. So, October when there is less happening will be a good time to hold the UK’s national CI show.

An October date also gives us more time to increase the footprint of EI Live! even further, and gives us time to put more visitor attractions in place and also increase the visitor offering across the show.

EI Live! 2020 will cover home automation, entertainment, and AV systems, but also encompass commercial building automation and AV as well as smart products from the world of electrical contracting.

By pushing boundaries that have yet to be explored by any UK trade show in the automation and AV market, the event has been constructed to deliver a unique nexus of industries, products, exhibitors, and attendees, that will drive business and create new opportunities.
