Despite the current disruptions and uncertainty, the event partners have agreed to proceed with preparations for PIP as normal to keep all options open for a possible field event on Thursday 12 August 2021. In order to give us the option of hosting a physical or slightly adapted physical event this year, field plot bookings have already taken place and will be planted. The PIP partners will be preparing digital content as well either to complement the physical field event or to be used if restrictions require us to hold a purely virtual PIP.
PIP will take place on Thursday 12 August 2021 be that in the purely physical, physical with digital elements or purely digital event format, subject to Covid regulations at the time of the event. We expect to be able to make the decision in May as to the final format, based on how pandemic restrictions have been evolving and any known or anticipated changes in these.
More information about the practical details around the event, other types of exhibitors and how PIP will be run will be provided to all interested parties when the prevailing Covid regulations are known, much nearer the time. We will also of course be taking regular soundings about these and any impacts on our plans and will share them with everyone who is interested in PIP.
