I am very happy to report that our negotiations with the Management of the Telford International Centre have resulted in a full refund of the money prepaid for Guildex 2020. This will result in more than £13,000 being returned to the Guild.
I would like to give special thanks to Jackie Kneeshaw, Alan Redgwick and Tim Humphreys all of whom were instrumental with me in making a success of this difficult negotiation.
No payments have been made for hotel bookings nor has any other money been spent on the cancelled show.
The traders have now had refunds organised or have asked for their money to be carried over to future payments. We thank the trade for their continued support in our decision to cancel our premier event.
We are now busy preparing for the Guild Virtual Show on the 31st October. The Events team are also preparing the new Guildex in Stafford in 2021.
We are grateful for the patient support of the membership while the whole matter of Guildex 2020 was being resolved.
