The October fair cited logistical issues including travel quarantine restrictions as it rescheduled the Regent’s Park events to next year. It will host an online viewing room instead.
Two weeks ago, PAD London became one of the latest in a long line of major fairs to be cancelled or rescheduled as a result of coronavirus. The fair, which has a large European exhibitor base and sister events in Paris and Geneva, cited the UK’s ‘unstable health conditions’ and rescheduled for October next year.
