Hampshire Business Expo cancelled over coronavirus risk

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 8:53am 10th March 2020. (Updated at 9:24am 10th March 2020)

Organisers of the Hampshire Business Expo have called off the event in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The expo was due to take place at the Sixth Form College in Farnborough on 8 April. 

The cancellation has been announced on its website - saying "Due to the current crisis the Hampshire Expo has been cancelled."

In a statement sent to Eagle Radio organisers said it had "been a difficult call to make" but with the risk being raised from Low to Moderate, they did not want to create unneccessary risk.

They also said they predict "a significant percentage of attendees" would stay away from the event.

And they said "we believe cancellation is a sensible and responsible reaction to the current crisis."

The Surrey Expo in Guildford is so far not affected and is scheduled to go ahead on 8 July.
