Due to the advice given by the World Health Organisation and recent announcements by the Government we have made the decision to cancel this year's Fair.
The forecast given by the Government that the situation may reach its peak in 14 or more weeks has raised our concerns for the safety of our exhibitors, visitors and the wider population, so we have decided that to reschedule the event for the autumn is unwise as it is increasingly likely events scheduled for later this year may also be cancelled.
We very much appreciate and are overwhelmed by the support of our exhibitors and their commitment to BCTF 2021. The kind words spoken and emailed to us over the past days have only re-enforced our belief that in difficult times people pull together, this is a strong community and together we will get through this.
We will continue to communicate with buyers and invite them to browse our up-to-date online catalogue, which includes all exhibitor contact details, a good showcase of their product images and a link to their online site. We have also been encouraged to see that buyers accessing our social media community on Facebook and Instagram are already finding BCTF exhibitor products they like and are placing orders.
The next BCTF will take place on the April 11-13 2021.
