International London Book Fair moves to June 2021

The next edition of the London Book Fair will take place from 29 June to 1 July in the Olympia Exhibition Centre. So far, the event has been held every year in March. This year's edition was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The organisers have announced that the new June dates "have been chosen in line with the current UK projected timelines for large-scale events restarting.”

“A number of health, hygiene, and safety measures have been developed, and these will be reviewed and implemented as the event approaches,” stated the announcement.

However, it was stipulated that “given the dynamic nature of the pandemic, we will continue to closely monitor the situation, and if the current outlook changes, will make a final decision on the live event’s feasibility by the end of March 2021 at the very latest.”
