Anglia Business Exhibition – Latest News!ABE

7th September 2021 at Trinity Park

Big news this month – ABE21 has a new date!

We are very excited that the recent roadmap announced by the government for lifting lockdown restrictions means that the end is now firmly in sight!

The roadmap does however mean that ABE could not go ahead on 12th May so it will now take place on Tuesday 7th September 2021 with setup day on Monday 6th September.

Following pilot events, successful earlier steps and lots of data monitoring, the government are planning to open all remaining closed settings and enable large events from 21st June. This means that by September we should be pretty much back to normal with confidence should be returning, and the majority of adults will have had at least their first vaccine, if not both.

What does this mean for you?

If you have already booked a stand or sponsorship package, your booking will be carried over to the new date. If you have not yet booked though, there are still stands and sponsorships available so book your place now at

Over 70% of exhibitor stands have already been sold and we already have some fantastic sponsors signed up. Don’t miss out on the chance to be involved in our region’s premier B2B exhibition and give your business a post lockdown boost!

We are planning on making this a hybrid event meaning that we will open up the event to online ‘visitors’ to increase exposure and add value. Watch out for more details on this soon.

25th Anniversary Year

Anniversary small2021 will be extra special, not just because we will finally be getting back together in person, but it is also the 25th anniversary of the exhibition. From its humble beginnings, the exhibition has grown to become the largest and most prestigious B2B event in our region. Come along and celebrate with us!

Thank You!

Firstly, we would like to congratulate and thank everyone involved in the vaccine rollout. It has been nothing short of monumental, from the initial news stories about a new coronavirus that we were watching this time last year to developing, testing and then rolling out the vaccines, allowing us all to look forward to a safe and prosperous future.

We would also like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has supported us over the years and especially during the pandemic. ISSBA and ABE wouldn’t be what it is today without your support and we are incredibly grateful.

We have an amazing business community which we are proud to serve. Together we will overcome the difficulties of the past year and drive our mutual success for the future!

If you have any questions or would like to speak to the ABE team, please contact us on and we will be happy to help.
