EventCity’s business strategy throughout the Covid-19 crisis has been focussed on the health, safety and wellbeing of our people, while protecting as many jobs as possible during this exceptionally challenging period.
In recent weeks, it has become increasingly clear that the depth of the economic contraction, particularly in the events and hospitality sectors, is far more extreme than anyone could have envisaged. Regrettably, we have had to take the decision to close EventCity by 31 March 2021 and withdraw our plans for a new facility, which were approved by Trafford Council in February of this year.
Our immediate priority is to ensure the events we have contracted will go ahead until 31st March 2021. The team have been working hard to follow Government guidelines ensuring our re-opening plans adhere to strict protocols set out by a variety of standards and leading industry bodies.
A reduced team will operate the events until closure takes place and we will be working with colleagues to support them through this period. The economic uncertainties should in no way undermine the extraordinary commitment and loyalty our colleagues have shown during these most testing times.’
