The National Tyre Dealers Assoc. conference and gala awards dinner has been cancelled.
The annual event, which was scheduled to be held in Birmingham’s VOX centre during November, has become the latest victim of coronavirus on the events industry.
Chief Exec Stefan Hay said: “We have worked tirelessly throughout the summer to remain positive with a view to delivering the quality event our members are accustomed to, but not until late yesterday did it become unfortunately apparent, that the social distancing, safety and hygiene restrictions imposed by the Government would have made it impossible for the event to be viable, even with drastically reduced attendance numbers”.
The IAAF conference and awards, BEN Ball and many other black tie events that were planned for the run-up to Christmas have already been cancelled.
