Plant show SED has been postponed for a year, the organisers have announced.
The national construction event was due to take place from 18 to 20 May this year. It will now be from 17 to 19 May 2011 at Rockingham Motor Speedway, Northamptonshire.
A statement on the SED website said: â€œThis was a difficult decision but, on balance, the right one and we are looking forward to a much more positive approach to 2011, when the current economic climate and uncertainty in the market has improved.
â€œWhen speaking with SED exhibitors and other industry professionals, the consensus seemed to be that, although an improvement is expected around April 2010, a significant, established upturn would not be seen until the end of the year.
â€œThis obviously means that, although construction is recovering, budgets would still need to be managed tightly. Also, and significantly, 2010 unexpectedly became a three construction event year as a result of Hillheadâ€™s postponement from 2009.â€
