BLE announces extended opening hours during Yom Kippur
Following an extensive consultation with exhibitors and visitors, UBM Advanstar, organiser of Brand Licensing Europe, has announced extended opening hours for next year’s event to work around Yom Kippur.
Exhibitors were asked to comment and review the situation, and as such the 2016 show will now open as follows:
• Day 1 – Tuesday 11th October: show will open to visitors one hour earlier, at 8.00am and will close at the usual time of 5.00pm.
• Day 2 – Wednesday 12th October: show will open to visitors at the usual time of 9.00am and will close at 5.00pm.
• Day 3 – Thursday 13th October: show will open at the usual time of 9.00am but will close one hour later at 5.00pm.
Darren Brechin, BLE Event Director, said “We have investigated all options to work around this unfortunate date clash, and extended opening hours are the best solution to allow colleagues celebrating Yom Kippur to fully participate in the 2016 event. Once again, we would like to apologise to all of our colleagues and friends affected and thank them for their understanding. We are committed to the continual process of evolving the event around our customers ever changing needs.”
BLE 2016 takes place from 11 – 13th October 2016 at London’s Olympia.
