Letter from the Organisers
 
Dear all
  
Thank you very much for pre-registering to attend FutureScape Spring on Tuesday 17th March.
  
After much deliberation and advice, the decision has been taken to postpone the event at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey.

We are currently working with the venue to secure a date in early July and will let you know of the new date very shortly. You will no doubt understand that we have taken this decision in light of the effect that the Coronavirus (COVID19) is having on the UK. Over the last two days we have had over 20% of exhibitors making the decision not to attend as well as some of the speakers cancelling.
  
We all need to consider the health and wellbeing of our staff and the landscaping community and we want visitors to get the maximum out of attending a show.
 
 I am sure like us you are extremely disappointed, but these are exceptional circumstances and there are indications that the UK government will follow other countries and ban large gatherings the early part of next week, so we wanted to give you as much notice as we could.
  
In the meantime please accept our apologies but these are unprecedented circumstances. Until now we have been taking the lead from government advice but feel we now need to act for the good of the landscape community.
