Fashion accessories tradeshow Chic has announced the cancellation of its January edition as a result of family circumstances.
The autumn 13 show, due to take place at the end of January at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, has been completely called off, with the next edition now planned for July 7-9 next year.
The show’s organisers described the decision to cancel the 34th edition of the show as “difficult” but felt that circumstances meant it would be impossible to devote the time needed to make the show a success for exhibitors and visitors.
“We are not in the business to hold exhibitions that don’t meet everyone’s expectations so rather than damage the reputation of the show we have made the decision to cancel,” said organiser Mark Greenhalgh.
“We have already been overwhelmed with kind messages and offer our sincere apologies to everyone affected.”
All exhibitors and suppliers have been individually informed and refunded for deposits paid for the event.
