So in a bit of news that will surprise no one, Salute won't be happening in April!! Shocking, I know... given nothing is open and we'll in all likelihood still be locked down by then and Excel is a Nightingale Hospital site.
The details can be found here... LINK
The show has been moved again to 13th November, assuming things have opened up again (surely by then...). I had seen some speculation that it was going to clash with the Warfare show at Reading but it looks like this is scheduled for a couple of weeks later on 27th and 28th November in its new home at Ascot Racecourse. Of course the big question will be how many of us return to wargames shows in the future. I must admit I'm undecided as there are too many unknowns at present and the thought of crowded events fills me with a fair amount of anxiety. I don't know if these are the big attraction they used to be for traders either...my impression is that, especially for smaller traders these have incurred increasing costs, especially when compared with online sales. But I guess the opportunity to showcase new ranges etc at the bigger shows must be tempting. Here's hoping we're in a place where it's at least possible to hold events and shows by then!
