The organisers of three more major fishing tackle shows across the world have announced the postponements of their events.
The Big One in Farnborough, UK has become a casualty for the second time this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, while other shows in Taiwan and Argentina have also been hit.
The tackle extravaganza – which draws up to 20,000 visitors and showcases products from the sport’s biggest manufacturers – was originally due to be held in March, but was postponed shortly before lockdown restrictions were put in place and rescheduled for October 24th and 25th.
The next Big One event at Farnborough will now take place between March 20th and 21st next year.
Show Director Vince Davies said: “We are incredibly disappointed that we have had to take this action, but the safety of everyone involved in the show has always been, and will remain to be, at the forefront of our minds.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support during these unprecedented times and look forward to seeing you in 2021, when we promise to deliver the biggest and best Big One shows ever.”
The Taiwan International Fisheries & Seafood Show (TIFSS), which was scheduled to take place between September 3rd and 5th has been postponed and will now take place between December 3rd and 5th, while Argentina’s 22nd Expo Aicacyp Aire Libre has been cancelled until next year.
