    HRC 2021 cancelled due to Covid-19

    The 2021 edition of the Hotel, Restaurant and Catering show (HRC) has been cancelled  due to the Covid-19 crisis… 

    The organisers of the Hotel, Restaurant and Catering show (HRC) have made the difficult yet responsible decision to cancel its 2021 physical event in response the ongoing global pandemic.

    In a statement issued by the show’s event manager Ronada Annesley, it was announced that the next HRC event will now take place on February 28, 2022.

    “Even though we had introduced ‘All Secure Standard’, a risk-assessment based framework for Covid-19, and planned for the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness, ultimately the lack of guidance and clarity from the government on when business events can restart has meant that we have had to take the painful decision to postpone HRC until 2022,” said Annesley.

    “We felt extremely confident that we could deliver a safe and secure live event for the tens of thousands of hospitality industry professionals that look forward to the show each year and we are devastated that we will not be able to play our part next year in helping the hospitality industry recover from the catastrophic consequences of the pandemic in a face to face format. However, we are currently investigating numerous ways in which we can continue to support and connect with the hospitality industry throughout 2021 and beyond, and hope to make an announcement around this in the near future.”
