Why did the dates change?
MA Exhibitions Limited, which owns and runs Channel Live, have taken the decision to reschedule the event from 19 – 20 January to 21 – 22 September 2021, at the NEC Birmingham. As organisers, our ongoing priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our exhibitors, visitors and staff. We believe that the new September 2021 dates will enable us to deliver the best possible event experience for everyone involved.

All existing exhibitor bookings will be automatically transferred to the new dates and a member of the team will be in touch over the coming days to discuss any questions you might have. We are using the additional time afforded to us by this postponement to continue to consult with the industry and develop Channel Live on all fronts to provide the best event possible in 2021.

In addition, we are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new virtual event, Channel Live Virtual,  taking place over 3-4 March 2021. This event has been designed to help keep you connected and engaged with our audience in the absence of the live show.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the show’s partners for their ongoing understanding and we look forward to working with you in delivering an outstanding event in 2021.

I've been receiving emails from external companies. Are they legitimate?
We are aware of a series of fraudulent emails to speakers and exhibitors from companies claiming to be officially partnered with the show, offering marketing services, making claims regarding the show status, offering access to the show's data and/or hotel reservation services. We are not in any way affiliated with these companies and advise you to ignore their emails and avoid clicking on any links contained within them. Your security is important to us, so if you're unsure whether or not an email you have received is fraudulent, please get in touch and we'd be happy to verify it for you. We would also like to reassure you that we do not release, sell or share any data related to Channel Live with any outside parties. For further details, click here.
