Waxstock 2021 is it taking place ?

Is Waxstock taking place this year if the Covid_19 restrictions have been lifted by the summer ?

It takes months of planning and if restrictions are lifted in late April it doesn’t leave much time. So I also doubt it.

Yep the planning involved is huge and the guys behind start early - Im sure if they can they will endeavour to do it but its a massive ask

I’m in the exhibition industry and we are expecting things to be happening from June onwards,
The trouble with wax stock is it is a public rather than trade event so visitor density will be much higher than for a trade only event which means far more hoops to jump through to keep things safe for everyone,
I wouldn’t rule it out at this early stage, Easter will give a better perspective on what’s possible, if it is a late decision to exhibit feel to drop me a line as my company is based in Warwick so we are local to the venue and very used to working with short lead-times.

We will be in lockdown til Easter. Not a chance.

After screwing over nursing students etc and not paying them for effectively working and not just working but in very difficult situations, it’s suddenly dawned on the powers that be that they need to staff Nightingale Hospitals (which will need to open anytime soon) and they’ve reversed that position. As soon as they can get them open they will, which means it’s about to hit the fan.

I'm similar to yourself in that i deal with supplying equipment for dental events and so far, bar one course in January, January is a wash out. I am fully expecting February and March to go the same way.
