    FutureScape 2020 goes virtual due to government announcement

    FutureScape EXPO 2020 will now be a virtual event taking place online on 17-19 November, following announcements from the Prime Minister, and follow up announcements from the UK’s Culture Secretary. FutureScape’s managing director Jim Wilkinson says: “It’s very clear that FutureScape EXPO 2020 cannot go ahead in its current guise due to the pilot events of 1,000 attendees per day having been suspended and the predicted increase in virus cases.

    6 Reasons Why The ExCeL London is a Sustainable Venue and Ideal for the FutureScape Expo 2020

    Last November, we announced that FutureScape, the UK’s largest landscaping show, will be no longer be held at Sandown Park Racecourse, and the new setting needed to align with the company’s ethics and sustainability practices.
