We received this survey overnight: https://www.conference-news.co.uk/coronavirus-updates-news/september-seen-critical-month-events-recovery-survey-suggests

According to 566 corporates, agencies and venues, September is viewed as being the month when bookings return. Does that tally with your view?

Interesting to distinguish between conferences/major events with international participation for which the return may be later due to travel concerns ongoing, and national events where that barrier is not so daunting. By comparison, Hunan Province in China held its first major national tradeshow last week https://www.exhibitionworld.co.uk/auto-show-opens-in-hunan-amidst-strict-health-check-procedures. Not only was it great news on May Day, a day when Chinese traditionally think about buying big ticket items, but for the automotive sector. Strict screening was in place prior to registration, clearly a pre-requisite but a sign of things to come in the UK maybe. Strong lobbying in Germany by AUMA and the last patient moving out of the IFEMA venue in Madrid are also positive signs of movement on the Continent. https://www.exhibitionworld.co.uk/medical-mission-accomplished-at-ifema-as-field-hospital-closes-at-exhibition-centre
