Postponed - Grand Designs Live London 2020

Following the escalation of COVID-19 Coronavirus, Media 10 has announced, with regret and careful consideration, the postponement of Grand Designs Live London. The event will now take place from 22 - 31 August 2020 - the venue remains London’s ExCeL.

While the postponement is disappointing, Media 10 believes it to be the sensible course of action given the circumstances. The health and safety of visitors, exhibitors, clients, and staff, is paramount. We are now working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation.

Richard Morey, Director at Media 10 stated “Media 10 continues to monitor the advice from the government and the World Health Organisation, but we believe that the new event dates will ensure the delivery of a successful show. We have not taken this decision lightly, but we have the wellbeing of all those involved in this event at the forefront of our thoughts and plans."

Our thoughts continue to be with everyone that has been affected by the situation and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the event come August.
