London 2020 Stamp Exhibition and the coronavirus
For the past year, I have been preparing for the international stamp exhibition LONDON 2020. I’ve been buying new stock and reducing prices on old stock so that I can have an attractive stand display. My stand is in a prominent position, right next to the (very good) cafe in London’s attractive exhibition hall, the Business Design Centre. I have booked and pre-paid for a hotel for eight nights. Quite soon, I need to recruit temporary assistants or volunteers to work on my stand with me and allow me an occasional break (I'm 72). I have been looking forward to meeting and greeting visitors from all over the world…..
Now I don’t know how things will turn out and I am inviting Comment from my readers.
Update 18 March 2020: Thanks to readers who left Comments. Now I do know how things will turn out. Click to read this statement from the organisers:; I think they have made the right decision and early enough for many people to be able to cancel or change flight and hotel bookings:
