Default IHS show 21st June?

When do we get official confirmation from the IHS that it is cancelled? Pretty clear Boris's latest roadmap rolling out to July don't allow it.

no announcement yet as they are consulting with the racecourse about a program of ongoing rescheduling to keep rolling back shows until they can proceed.

I wouldn't hold your breath for any show this year,with next year in doubt until this pandemic is under control and social distancing restrictions are removed.
TBH with so many people still dying any talk or interest in reptile shows seems misplaced.

Unfortunately, I think the IHS will need to continue on as if the shows are happening until the Racecourse officially say they can't have it.
If they cancel from their own volition, the Racecourse are likely to keep the money paid towards it, making it hard for the IHS to refund table holders.

And like that, the June show is now cancelled, with August tentative.

no word as to which show they mean by June, as April was now supposed to be June but I've heard they decided to change April to August. First I've heard of it though

I have friends in the entertainment industry and part of their work is in the organisation of shows,festivals and exhibitions,concerts,unfortunately their telling me that for the rest of this year everything is cancelled and because of the long time lag in the organisation of these type of events there's no plans for 2021,their skipping straight to 2022.
With all the uncertainty with this pandemic making sort term or medium term plans that require financial investment upfront is pointless.

Your talking up the biggest economic depression in human history. Time has come for people to re-organise their practices and procedures and get the wheels back on before even more damage is done.
