Read a statement from Andrew Reed, Managing Director of Exhibitions at William Reed here.

What are the new dates for Foodex?

Foodex will run on 12th – 14th April 2021 at the NEC, Birmingham.

Will Foodex still run alongside the other food and drink shows?

Foodex will be part of the UK food shows alongside The Ingredients Show, Farm Shop & Deli Show, Food & Drink Expo, National Convenience Show and The Forecourt Show.

I registered as a visitor, do I need to register again?

Your registration will be transferred automatically to the April 2021 event. If you are unable to make the new date please get in touch by contacting and we will remove you from our registration database. 

Can I get a refund for any expenses incurred, eg train fare, hotels etc.?

We cannot reimburse ancillary expenses. Any refund requests should be addressed directly with the provider.

I have pre-paid for parking at the NEC, will I be able to get a refund or use it for the new show dates?

The NEC parking T&Cs state that: “If the event which you are due to attend at the NEC is rescheduled, we will amend your Booking accordingly. If you are unable to attend the re-scheduled date, you should contact us by email prior to the re-scheduled date and we will issue a refund for the amount we received from you for the Booking to the card which the payment was made.”

Will the live event programme stay the same?

We will aim to keep the programme the same where possible subject to speakers being available.

Will the same exhibitors be at Foodex in April 2021?

We anticipate the exhibitors to be very much the same in April 2021.
